NKB racing meets the german touring cars championship DTM!
Speed meets speed.
The last weekend the DTM had their stop in Zandvoort and Dirk Hanel went to meet up with the DTM Thomas Sabo Mercedes Team. As the first german television, ARD, wanted to film some activities of the racecar drivers apart from the racetrack Dirk went Kitesurfing with Christian Vietoris.
As the DTM track of Zandvoort is just behind the dike, it is a perfect place to do the first steps with the kite and the race is always very exciting as the track goes through the sanddunes.
The weekend being with lots of wind and rain squalls and showers was super interesting and full of action. Dirk took a taxi ride with last years Thomas Sabo Racecar in order to feel the real speed on the race track. Then being guest of Mercedes Benz Team he had the chance to visit the box of the team during warm up and pitstop.
The walk right before the start of the race through the grid and a meet and greet with Garry Paffet, leader of the current DTM championships, was as exciting as watching the thrilling racing.
Unfortunately the photoshoot of DTM racecar meets Kitesurf did not work out because of to many rainshowers and a too tight schedule on the racetrack. To be continued at one of the next venues.
Enjoy the clips!
