DTM Valencia – New Champion Crowned
October 4, 2011
Mercedes-Benz racing driver Bruno Spengler missed out on his chance to clinch victory in this season’s DTM championship as Audi driver Martin Tomczyk sealed the championship with a third place finish.
Mercedes-Benz driver, Spengler narrowly failed to clinch victory for the second year in a row after a close finale saw him defeated in 2010. Spengler finished the penultimate race in seventh position and after the race admitted, “We didn’t lose the title today, we already lost too many points in the previous races. We have been fighting hard, but we simply couldn’t do more today.”
Tomczyk wrapped up the 2011 DTM title in Valencia finishing behind race winner Mattias Ekström and second-placed Portuguese driver Filipe Albuquerque. With 64 points to Spengler’s 51 in the DTM driver’s standings Tomczyk has been crowned champion with one race to go in Hockenheim on the weekend of October 21st, where the Audi driver will receive the crystal champion’s trophy.
