DTM meeting enhanced by playmate Michaela Grauke
Now here at Autoblog we don't need much encouragement to go racing but if ever we needed that extra bit of incentive, this weekend's DTM has come up with the answer - Playboy playmates. Well, one in particular.
Michaela Grauke (she's the one on the right in the photo above with her playmate friend Nicole Belke although who really minds which is which) is one of the attractions at the latest round of the Deutsche Touring Masters Championship thanks to driver Marcus Winkelhock's sponsorship deal with Playboy.
As you might have guessed, the event is not in the UK but for our German readers and anyone here at a loose end this weekend, a trip to the Norisring in Nuremberg could be just the ticket.
As well as Michaela, fans can expect to see some some good, hard racing in one of motor racing's best championships. There's a healthy smattering of Brits on the grid including David Coulthard, Gary Paffett, Oliver Jarvis and Katherine Legge as well as one of this year's Le Mans winners, Mike Rockenfeller (not a Brit).
The car that Rockenfeller drove to victory, the Audi R15 TDI will also be making an appearance and driving a demo lap before the DTM race along with the other two victorious drivers, Romain Dumas and Timo Scheider.
Anyway, back to Michaela.
