Premium tyre maker Hankook and the DTM return to Germany this weekend. The Lausitzring is the venue for round seven of the season in arguably the most popular international touring car series, as the title race comes to a head. René Rast is favourite to win the championship, following his victory on the Sunday at Brands Hatch. The Audi driver has only failed to pick up points in two of the twelve DTM races so far and, with four wins, four podiums, a fifth and a seventh place, has been consistently strong. His closest rival is fellow Audi racer, Nico Müller, who trails Rast by 37 points. BMW drivers Marco Wittmann and Philipp Eng are still within striking distance in third and fourth place, but will have to start winning races if they are to catch the two Audi men. The Hankook race tyre could play a key role in the final stages of the season, as its high degree of consistency and predictability allows aggressive race strategies.
The W Series drew to a close this weekend with a thrilling finale at Brands Hatch. Fourth place for championship leader Jamie Chadwick in the sixth and final race of the inaugural 2019 season was sufficient for the British driver to be crowned champion in the only all-woman Formula series in the world. Chadwick was rewarded for her title win with a cheque for 500,000 dollars. The total prize money on offer amounted to 1.5 million dollars. The new racing format, in which only female drivers may race, was launched at the start of the year. Premium tyre maker Hankook supported the drivers with the Ventus Race tyre, which, with its high level of consistency and predictability, proved to be the ideal partner for the young drivers.
