Glock and Ekström dominate the test DTM at Monteblanco


Three days of private test. So have you started the pre-season
the DTM in this 2016. As is almost usual, the Championship German Touring car
has moved to our country looking for a suitable climate to undertake their
first tests and in the Circuit of Monteblanco you have found. After three
days of hard work, Timo Glock has finished with the best time at
to mark a record of 1:21.311
during the third and final day of testing.
Mattias Ekström after 499 laps he finished with the second best time,
being the pilot with more twists to the plot andalusian.

A condition that has trap, since Mattias Ekström and
Jamie Green have been the only drivers of Audi Sport present in Monteblanco
so you have participated in the three days at the wheel of the two Audi RS
5 DTM displaced. However, on the BMW M4 DTM, there were more changes. Bruno Spengler
and Marco Wittmann raced the first two days, while Timo Glock
and Augusto Farfus took the relief of his companions. For his part, two days
on the new Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupé DTM have had Gary Paffett and Paul Di
, leaving the opening day, Robert Wickens and Christian Vietoris.


In any case, what has not been lacking in none of the
cases, it has been working. riders of BMW Motorsport have completed 745 laps
the design of Monteblanco, which means having to travel a distance of 3,300
kilometers, a figure that is as remarkable as anecdotal in relation to 4,200
miles had joined the Audi RS 5 DTM
at the controls of Ekström and Green. By
its part, Mercedes has been left in 536 turns and 2375 km. A figure
minor, but understandable being the first test of the Mercedes-AMG C 63
Coupe. A new car requires more settings.
