Bruno Spengler loses control DTM

Fought on the British Brands Hatch circuit, the ordeal of the seventh season of the series DTM has not smiled at the Quebecois Bruno Spengler. Championship leader before this round, Bruno concede that place was the German Martin Tomczyk, who won in front of his teammates from Audi Sport, the Swedish Mattias Ekstrom and the Franco-Italian Edoardo Mortara. Indeed, it was a complete triumph of Audi drivers since Mike Rockenfeller qualifications had clinched the pole position.

This turnaround has three races left in the season is symptomatic of what is happening at this time in the DTM Audi then henceforth largely dominates the Mercedes wins 2011 (5 against 2). Mercedes, it seems that Bruno Spengler is little support in the team, despite the fact that he is the only one to have made the brand triumph this season. We may even wonder if the athletic director Norbert Haug would not prefer to see Ralf Schumacher and Gary Paffett play for the title rather than Mercedes Bruno ... But nothing is lost. There are three races to compete on three circuits that the driver quebecois knows both his opponents and it is all the same to a small point Tomczyk atop the standings (50 points to 49).

Elsewhere in actuality, the World Championship FIA GT Cars presented for the first time in its existence a race on the Ordos circuit in the region of Inner Mongolia (China). An appointment taken advantage of by the Belgian Marc VDS team-Racing Ford GT to impose its Nissan GT-R, Aston Martin DB9 and other Lamborghini Murcielago, with its duo Maxime Martin / Frederic Makowiecki.

If the Sprint Cup race had to be postponed tomorrow Tuesday because of the passage of a storm, the tests of Nationwide Series and Camping World Trucks have taken place Friday and Saturday. Carl Edwards (Ford) has won the Nationwide and Ron Hornaday (Chevrolet) the trucks race.

IndyCar is the temporary street circuit in Baltimore (Maryland) who welcomed the participants. A track in the purest style of what was there 10 years Champ, made of straight lines between walls and baffles temporary concrete just before the first test! Despite these conditions, few incidents have emaille the race. Australian Will Power has wins before Oriol Servia, Tony Kanaan and Dario Franchitti. Alex Tagliani took the seventh rank, exceeded by Danica Patrick a hundredth of a second at the finish line!
