DTM - Brands Hatch Indy

I attended the UK round of the DTM last weekend, here are some pictures:

 



Start of race







 









Rubbing is racing!



















Never tire of hearing a C63 AMG.



 







Outrageously wide wheel arches and tyres.

It was a great day out, the lashing of rain prior to the start spiced things up.

Those rear winglets are insane - the car looks as though it's already been in an accident

good pics sav. Did the rain spoil the race?

I never knew Michelangelo drove an AMG CLS?!

Great pics sav.

That CLS 63 AMG is less Michelangelo and more Picasso if you ask me.

A cockpit, an engine, two wings, is it still a car?

My god who comes up with that shit?

Phil, the rain improved the race. With these wide cars with so much downforce on such such a tight circuit, overtaking is frequently difficult. The rain resulted in many good battles and new lines, like the outside of Druids hairpin.

The weather had been iffy all morning, but just before the start the heavens truly opened. It's amazing how much water is dispersed by these tyres, a drier racing line was appearing even though it was still raining.

That S-Class parked next to the SL65 Black Series was a S250 CDI, first four-pot S-Class I've seen - unfortunately.
