Well, I was certainly wrong about that ballast prediction.

Audi has decided Ekstrom will race at Norisring instead of WRX.

If Ekstrom had preferred to run in WRX, you'd think Audi would have let him...no? Dunno Fire, would he rather run in DTM, I take it?

Interview with Gerhard Berger. Honestly, I wasn't convinced when I learnt about his becoming ITR president, but now I've got the feeling that Berger is the right person on the right place. I just have the feeling that he can do something really good in DTM.

As it happens, Ekstrom the only Audi anywhere near the BMW train Race 1. Ekstrom et Maxime Martin late in the race (*spoiler* and *youtube* alert): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7_O_c2Z5LcI

Happy Canada Day!

I don't see Gerhard Berger thinking big. What I understand is stability, consistency, continuity.

He should be improving attendances and ratings. He should be looking for more manufacturers.

He seems focused to keep the three manufacturers happy with what they have, instead of thinkng about how DTM can grow.

What are the attendance figures this year, versus last say, NaBUru? Do you know? I wouldn't have the least idea.

That was a heck of a 2nd race, which is unusual for a dry street race, but marred by the terrible crash for Paffet and Rocky.

Still not a fan of the side-by-side restarts, DRS is enough.

It's all fun and games until someone gets injured.

The restarts, DRS and cold tyres have meant I've been watching the DTM this year, however. Really enjoyed the second race.

I'm with Divxx on this one, I don't see the Indy-style restarts as necessary or contributing really...meh.

Why is there no Race 2 re-live on the youtube channel? Only highlights! Is that new this year too : p

That was a close race. Shame about the incident, glad they are both alright, shows the strength of the tin tops again. Need to see a better view of how Paffet hit the other car before hitting the wall
