The Porsche Team claimed a one-two result in front of a great crowd at the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) at the Nürburgring. The trio of Timo Bernhard (DE), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Mark Webber (AUS) won the six-hour race in temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius. Right behind them the sister Porsche 919 Hybrid of Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (DE) came second. Over the weekend 62,000 people created a fantastic backdrop for the first German WEC race.
Mike Rockenfeller, #99 Audi Sport Team Phoenix - Audi RS5 DTM
There is no doubt that he can rightfully refer to himself as ‘Moscow expert’. Two years after his victory in the first-ever DTM race at Moscow Raceway, Mike Rockenfeller had reason to celebrate in Russia once again. In a turbulent race, the Audi driver steered clear of every incident on the track, made maximum use of his pole position and scored a dominant lights-to-flag victory. “I had the car I need to win. In spite of the amount of success ballast, it was simply super-fast,” a jubilant Rockenfeller said. So fast, that even Bruno Spengler, with the considerably lighter BMW, wasn’t able to keep up. After a fierce battle with the drivers behind him, the Canadian crossed the finish line in second place, some four seconds down on Rockenfeller. The final slot on the podium went to a buoyant Mattias Ekström, who once again showed his great skills and claimed back the lead in the drivers’ standings from Pascal Wehrlein. The Mercedes-Benz driver was involved in one of two entertaining battling groups that made their mark on the race.

AFFALTERBACH. : August 20, 2015 - Mercedes-AMG is setting a further landmark in the brand history: the new C 63 Coupé is the next step on the way to yet more technical and visual distinctiveness. The far-reaching technical modifications are evident at first sight: strikingly flared front and rear wheel arches, an increased track width and larger wheels give the Coupé a muscular look while at the same time providing a basis for the highly agile longitudinal and lateral dynamics. The brand's typical "Driving Performance" is taken to new heights also with the C 63 Coupé. The AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine with 350 kW (476 hp) or 375 kW (510 hp) is just as much a completely in-house development from Affalterbach as, for example, the sophisticated AMG RIDE CONTROL suspension with electronically controlled shock absorbers, the set-up of the AMG DYNAMIC SELECT transmission modes, the rear-axle limited-slip differential or the dynamic engine mounts
