Vanina To The DTM
It won’t be another prototype season for Vanina Ickx: after
some stirring drives in a Rollcentre Dallara last year, 2006 will
see Vanina Ickx racing an Audi A4 in the DTM, for a new team set
up by Midland F1 man Colin Kolles.
Mouton and Tamara Vidali clearly demonstrated that a woman can come
out on top very well in a sport dominated by men,” explains
Head of Audi Motorsport Dr Wolfgang Ullrich - with Vanina, right.
"We are convinced that Vanina Ickx possesses all the skills
to be just as successful.”
"Alongside Formula 1, DTM is the most popular
international racing series,” comments Vanina Ickx, “and
without doubt the hardest. I know that things won’t be easy
for me in DTM.”
The team’s cars are 2004 Audi chassis, and
the second car is still available.
