• Conflicting schedule between #dtm and World Rallycross Championship

• Reigning world champion passes up World RX round in Sweden


Neuburg, June 23, 2017 – Good news for all #dtm fans: Mattias Ekström in his Red Bull #audirs5dtm will be on the grid of the #dtm season’s highlight at the #norisring on the first weekend of July and skip the World RX round in Höljes (Sweden). “It was a very difficult decision because we’re still early in the season and Mattias has title chances in both championships,” says Head of #audimotorsport #dietergass. “But the factory commitment in the #dtm has priority for us. Mattias can win his third #dtm title this year and has always been very strong at the #norisring. In addition, this is our home round and we need Mattias there.”
In Höljes, Ekström will be replaced at EKS by his Swedish compatriot P-G Andersson. “I’m happy that my boss (Dieter Gass) has made this decision for me,” says Ekström. “That of all events there’s a clash between my home race in Höljes and one of my favorite races in the #dtm is a real shame. I’d have loved #racing at both events but, unfortunately, that’s not possible logistically.” The #dtm races will start on Saturday (July 1) at 6:55 PM CEST and on Sunday (July 2) at 5:20 PM. ARD will be airing live coverage from Nuremberg on “das Erste.” Tickets and #audi fan packages are available online at www.audi.com/dtm. www.fiaworldrallycross.com/live offers a World RX live stream from Höljes on Sunday (July 2) from 2:00 PM CEST.
