Time to make the donuts: Audi thrills fans at DTM presentation in Wiesbaden (w/ video)

. Monday, April 11, 2011

To a crowd of 120,000 fans, Sunday's annual DTM presentation in Wiesbaden officially ushered in the 2011 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season in spectacular fashion. The presentation included the debut of this year's new liveries and drivers, a performance by Natasha Bedingfield, stunt shows and (our favorite event) demonstration laps on the Wilhelmstraße - complete with gratuitous burnouts and donuts. Videos and photo gallery after the jump.
