• Audi driver Martin Tomczyk is the 2011 DTM drivers champion

      Well, the 2011 DTM season still has 1 race left but Martin Tomczyk has already wrapped up the driver's championship. It has been a hard fought year with things going back and forth between Tomczyk and Mercedes driver Burno Spengler but Audi has put together a string of dominating victories elevating their top drivers in the standings. The final race of the season is on the 23rd of this month at the Hockenheim in Germany where Tomczyk will be presented with his trophy.

      Dr. Martin Mühlmeier, head of technology Audi Sport: “In the last few races, there has been a lot of tension. Of course, we had hoped that we get everything sorted today already. This is a great day for Audi, because we can celebrate with Martin and, of course, also with Mattias, Filipe and all the other drivers. Martin has been very focussed throughout the season and eventually has won the title by his own means. I really congratulate him.”

      Norbert Haug, head of motorsport Mercedes-Benz: “First of all, congratulations to Martin and the Audi team. At the end of the day, I am a sportsman, one should be able to lose as well. Today, I am one hundred percent behind my team. They have all been working very hard. Unfortunately, we have lost 20 points to Martin in the last races. I want to take the opportunity to say thank you to all those who have contributed to make the DTM survive in the past years: Audi, Mercedes-Benz, the DMSB and the ITR. Now, I am looking forward to the final round at Hockenheim and BMW’s arrival next year.”
