New Audi A4 - Gets 1, 2, 3 at debut DTM round

The first round of the 2008 DTM (German Touring Car League) at Hockenheim, saw Audi cross the line in 1st 2nd and 3rd places with the all-new B8 Audi A4, in DTM guise.
The all new A4 was engineered to improve aerodynamics through Computational Fluid Dynamics (whatever that is..) lowering centre of gravity for better cornering, faster, with less roll. Under the bonnet of the new A4 is a 4.0 Liter racing specialty engine capable of 460 horsepower.
Drivers of the trifecta Audi cars are:
1st - Mattias Ekström [11 career wins - most successful DTM driver of all time.]
2nd - Timo Scheider
3rd - Tom Kristensen
