Default DTM History Video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gw-AxiVqihM



Just reminds me how as a production series evolves it seems lose it's connection with the spectators by ultimately becoming a mere silhouette of the actual production car. At least to me, there's something cool about taking that production car and then modifying to go faster without losing it's original identity. Also seems that the participation of multiple manufacturers dwindles as the series age.

What was the Mustang doing in there? Mis-clip or did they actually have one over there a time or two?

I saw the Fox body too. Seems like I read about some privateer teams running them in DTM.

Cool video, would have been awesome if there was less gay music and more sound from the cars.
