#DTM

The DTM was founded in 1984

The DTM fascinates motorsport fans for more than 30 years now and is regarded as one of the world’s toughest and most hard-fought racing series.

Three-way battle at the highest level

Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz each send eight cars to the grid in the 2016 season, and every car is occupied by top-class drivers. Each of the 24 drivers is capable of fighting for victory – this in itself is unique worldwide. The performance parity is so close that often only hundredths or even thousandths of a second prove crucial. Last year, there were 13 different winners in the 18 races. Six of these drove an Audi RS 5 DTM.

A tenth title in the sights

V8 quattro, TT, A4, RS 5: the brand with the four rings has won the prestigious drivers title at least once with every type of car that Audi has fielded in the DTM so far – most recently in 2013 with Mike Rockenfeller as first driver of an RS model from Audi Sport. After the Audi RS 5 DTM proved the car to beat last year with ten victories in 18 races, a clear goal has been defined for 2016: The start number 1, the Champion’s symbol, should return to Neuburg. Audi also has both the manufacturers and team titles firmly in its sights.
