DTM: Principal victory for Brenning and Porsche

DTM: Principal victory for Brenning and Porsche


Austrian top Thomas Breening wrote a small piece of motorsport history on Saturday. The 23-year-old claimed his first DTM win in a chaotic race at Norisring in Nuremberg. It was also the first series victory for the manufacturer Porsche. Only 11 drivers were rated, among those who dropped out was Tyrol’s Lucas Auer and DTM leader Sheldon van der Linde.

“The History of Motorsports with Porsche. “I’m very proud,” Breening said in the cockpit. The man from Linz leads the KÜS Team Bernhard in his first year at the DTM. Preining started the race from second place on the grid, where there were three stages for the safety cars. His Norwegian teammate, Dennis Olsen, finished second. Philip Inge ranked fifth, while Clemens Schmid ranked tenth.

“The car was very powerful. We were very good with the brakes. In the end, we got that victory because we were always able to pass the Audis on all the restarts. Fortunately, the race ended at some point because it was so full of excitement with all the restarts” , explained Brenning, adding, “It’s been a long and hard road. Now we’re finally here.”

Oyer, who won the first race of the season in Portimao, retired through no fault of his own after suffering health problems. After qualifying, the Tyrol had a blockage in the sacroiliac joint in his pelvis, which extended to his neck. Neck muscles “locked up” and caused pain. After the treatment, Auer was fit enough to race.
