Mattias Ekstrom ended Audi’s 11-year wait for a Norisring DTM victory while Gary Paffett and Edoardo Mortara ended the race in the wall following an acrimonious scrap for third. Ekstrom lay fourth when the safety car pulled in on lap 16; its appearance a legacy of Martin Tomczyk and Daniel Juncadella banging doors exiting Turn 1 and putting the RMG BMW in the wall.

Season 4 again finds Broekman once again going head-to-head with V8 rivals [...]
