From the 15th August, the Audi Museum will have an exhibition relating to the history of the brand’s successes of over 20 years of competing in the DTM, called “Good Times“. DTM fans, who have followed Audi Sport‘s trials, tribulations and glorious moments will find all the vehicles used over the past two decades to be on display to the general public.

This collection of cars starts from such humble, but epic beginnings, as it showcases cars of racing pedigree, such as the Audi V8 Quattro that took Ingolstadt’s first title in 1990, to the championship-winning Abt-Audi TTR finishing with the A4 DTM that was used until the end of last year. The exhibition would also feature a special program for the younger fans of racing, with children being able to take part in pit stops and quizzes specifically designed with them in mind.

But on top of that, motorsport fans can also have the chance at looking at the plethora of other Audi race cars from over the past few decades, with there being something for everyone. But on the official opening on Tuesday evening saw Head of Audi Motorsport, Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich, the only back-to-back DTM title holder for Audi, Timo Scheider, Audi’s first DTM title winner, Hans-Joachim Stuck, and Dr. Ullrich’s counterpart at that time, Dieter Basche, in attendance, which gives the event an incredible amount of credibility, and shows how proud Audi Sport is of its achievements over the years.

“Vorsprung Durch Technik” is a philosophy embodied by the Ingolstadt manufacturer both on the road and on the track, and with the continuing driving force of Dr. Ullrich behind the hard-working teams, it will only be a matter of time before Audi could add to the collection in years to come.
