The #dtm got the second half of the season under way at #zandvoort in front of 38,000 spectators over the weekend. #mercedesamg Motorsport #dtm driver #garypaffett (Mercedes-AMG C 63 #dtm Mercedes me) placed sixth in the twelfth race of the season. During the race, he improved by eleven positions from 17th on the grid. Over the final few laps, he even scrapped with Audi drivers Mattias Ekström and Nico Müller for fourth place. The 2005 #dtm champion finished in the points in both races staged at the circuit in the dunes. Overall, this was Gary’s tenth points-scoring finish in the twelfth race of the 2017 season.
His #mercedesamg Motorsport #dtm team-mate Maro Engel (SILBERPFEIL Energy #mercedesamg C 63 DTM) was on course to secure a top result after an early pit stop when he had to head back to the pits with a damaged tyre. In the end, the winner of the second race in Moscow crossed the finish line in P12.
The two Pink Panthers were also out of luck at #zandvoort. Edoardo Mortara (BWT #mercedesamg C 63 DTM) finished the race behind Engel in P13. Lucas Auer (BWT #mercedesamg C 63 DTM) came home in 15th place.
An error message popped up on the display of Paul Di Resta’s #mercedesamg C 63 #dtm towards the end of the first stint of the race, and he had to retire his car to the pits. Robert Wickens (Mercedes-AMG C 63 #dtm Mercedes me) also retired just a few minutes before the end of the race.
