Felix visits Munich DTM event with Mercedes

Felix was on-site at last weekend's DTM Show Event at Munich's scenic Olympic Stadium as a guest of Mercedes-Benz.

The event - which followed a similar format to that in use during the annual Race of Champions, with a duel-based knock-out system on a temporary circuit constructed in the heart of the arena - turned out to be a huge success. DTM organisers reported 54.000 visitors over the two days of competition, with Felix available for supporters and the media as the representative of Mercedes' Formula 3 Euro Series commitment.

Undertakings included dedicated autograph sessions, on-stage interviews and photographic opportunities with the fans. Rival and friend Daniel Abt joined Felix as an ambassador for the championship, which is part of the support programme for the DTM races across Europe.

The DTM Show Event marked a first in international motorsport, as drivers got to race the very same cars they usually compete with on normal circuits in an arena setting - as opposed to the Race of Champions, where a range of different machinery is used. The Munich spectacle was won by Mercedes-Benz driver Bruno Spengler, who beat reigning Formula 3 Euro Series champion Edoardo Mortara (Audi) to the victory as the Italian proved to have carried his speed from single-seaters straight into the most competitive Touring Car championship on earth.

Another to make the trip to the Olympic Stadium was Formula 1 star Nico Rosberg, who used the occasion to demonstrate the Mercedes Grand Prix car in the build-up to next weekend's German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring.

Shortly after the Sunday finale, Felix left Munich to travel to his Mücke Motorsport team in Berlin in preparation for this week's private test at EuroSpeedway Lausitz.

A report from testing will be published here at www.felixracing.se later this week.
