DTM Zandvoort 2018: From the Pitlane to the Track

Trackandtuner.com visited DTM Zandvoort 2018. We had press access and therefore granted to check out the pitlane and the grid just before the start of the race.

The program was full of great action, with the SuperCarChallenge here:

However, in this part we check out the pitlane, the grid and see the riders up close.

Seeing these BMW M4's, Mercedes C63AMG's and the RS5's up close shows how wide and low these cars really are. We went into the pitlane and went face to face with some of the best riers like Gary Pfaffet, Paul Di Resta, Timo Glock and Pascal Wehrlein.

All just before the start of race, still pretty relaxe compared to some other racing series.

On track these cars are fast and loud thanks to the limited 500HP V8.

Fun to see is that the tire warmers are forbidden, this means after the pitstop most of them had real issues going into the first corner called the Tarzan.

Check out the video above for a summary of the weekend and listen to the great sounds.
