Leading Audi driver Mattias Ekstrom will celebrate his 100th DTM start this weekend as the series heads to Brands Hatch this weekend.

Ekstrom is currently placed fourth in the championship and will be looking to make up the 16 point deficit to Bruno Spengler.

In an impressive 47.5 percent of his races he has finished on the podium and scored 475 points over his DTM career, this works out at an average of 4.8 points per race.

Talking ahead of the race weekend he said: “I’ve had several exploits at Brands Hatch as well as some misfortune. But this year I’m looking forward to the next run. It would really be nice to finish on the podium there.”

2009 saw Ekstrom start the British round from seventh on the grid and battle his way up to fifth, he will be looking for repeat performance of his 2006 victory.
