DTM: Zandvoort Race (Live Stream)
On Sunday the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) season continues with the penultimate round of the championship. The premier German touring car series visits the Dutch circuit of Zandvoort right next to coastline of the North Sea.
Today it was rookie Marco Wittmann claiming his maiden pole position for BMW. In the final qualifying heat, he set the fastest lap time at Circuit Park Zandvoort in 1:30.894 minutes.
“That is unbelievable, I really didn’t expect this. My maiden pole is something very special and with the front row, we have achieved a fabulous team result,” an overjoyed Wittmann said.
Fellow BMW driver Augusto Farfus, who, next to points’ leader Mike Rockenfeller (Audi) is the only driver still in with a chance to win the 2013 DTM champion’s title, ended up in second place with a lap time of 1:30.979 minutes.
Rockenfeller was around three tenths of a second slower than Farfus and will be starting third into the ninth DTM round of the year.
Gary Paffett was the best-placed Mercedes-Benz driver in twelfth.
