Audi Sport - Part 4

Timo Scheider had made a name for himself since returning to DTM scene in 2006, finding a drive with Audi Sport Team Rosberg. Scores 12 points for 10th overall on board his 2005-spec Audi A4 DTM. The following year, he drove a 2007-spec car for the factory-backed Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline. Ranks 7th in the championship, making five Top 5 appearances throughout the season. Highlights a 2nd place (his only podium in 2007) in season's very finale, at Hockenheim.

In 2008, he finally came out on top of the game, after having lived under the shadow of mighty Martias Ekstrom for 2 seasons. Finally Timo Scheider was crowned the new DTM champion at last race at Hockenheim. In 2009 he set a new record again!The 2008 winner successfully defended his DTM title in the 2009 season in the A4 DTM. This makes Audi the first brand to have won the title for the third consecutive time in the history of the DTM that has been held since 1984.

Hello RC,

What a nice Audi A4 DTM touring car.I also want to collect this range but is just too much to think & to little to collect.

I collect F1 ,RALLY & street car.

Congratul...& it really nice to keep.

Thanks for your comments. Every collector has their own reference. I like your theme too. I have handful of F1 models, mostly are in 1/43 scaled. Rally cars are nice, but I don't think I have room for them... Therefore, I stick to GT and some top marque e.g. Audi, BMW, Mercedes (too many to name here) collection only.

Happy diecasting :)
