Öhlinsequipped Champions on four wheels

It's that time of the year. Champions are decided and Öhlins is proud to add two more champions to our Hall of Fame after this weeekend.

In DTM Martin Tomczyk wrote a little bit of history by being the first driver to win the title in an old-spec car. At Valencia, the penultimate round, he managed to storm from tenth place on the grid to third place and securing the DTM-title. It might have taken him eleven years to take his first DTM-title but when he did it it was even more impressive.

He was demoted to an older-spec car this season but took that as a sign to rev up. He has finished in the points every round, won three races and been on the podium in seven of the nine rounds.
"It's hard to find words for my emotions," Martin said afterwards. "It's definetly a very nice feeling to be DTM champion. Eleven years of DTM with lots of up's and down's and in the eleventh year, together with Team Phoenix, I've managed to become champion. It's been a fantastic season and real fun to drive this car and to work together with this team."

The Valencia round was an Audi success with Audi cars claiming the first six positions, Tomczyk securing the title and with two-time champion Mattias Ekström dominating and winning the race from pole position.

On the other side of the Atlantic Öhlinsequipped cars also found success. In the final round of the American Le Mans Series, the Petit Le Mans 10-hour endurance, Dirk Muller and Joey Hand won the GT-championship in the Team Rahal Letterman BMW M3 GT2. They finished third in the race which was enough to earn them their second consecutive GT Car manufactures championship and the drivers title.
