|The start of race 1.
||A breaking duel between Grohs in the M3 (in Evo trim rather than Sport Evo) and Thiim.
|Cecotto in the Schnitzer Sport Evo.
|... and Ludwig in the Mercedes Evo I.
||A BMW train, consisting of Soper, Hahne, Cecotto and Laffite.
|Soper leading an MS-Jet Mercedes.
||Bigazzi made a big impact at the start of the season; this is Soper...
|... this is Winkelhock...
||... and here's Laffite, all regular front-runners.
|Linder fared less well, apart from Heger; this is Nissen.
||Zakspeed had few high points in the season; this is Quester.
|They were perhaps handicapped by having to enter Anette Meeuvissen, though I would rate her higher than the 2012 DTM ladies.
||Gorhs in his Valier car.
|Privateer Bernhard had to use the old 2.3-16; and this damage didn't make life any easier.
||Stuck was surprisingly efficient on the brakes; outbraking an M3 wasn't unusual for the big Audi.
|Opel had already withdrawn for the weekend, but Audi did a terrific job.
||The private Murmann team was very competitive in the season, especially when Schmickler got behind the wheel.
