A contract to this end, covering the 2016 and 2017 race seasons, was signed by ARD and ITR
Mattias Ekström will win the 2015 DTM Drivers’ championship.
This was the prediction of about a third of the drivers on the 2015 DTM grid. In an anonymous poll, conducted prior to the season kick-off weekend, the 36-year old Swede proved to be the winner. In the 143 DTM races he contested up to the end of the 2014 season, Ekström secured 19 race wins, 63 podiums and 19 poles.
