Martin Tomczyk is a former DTM champion and drives for BMW. Nasser Al-Attiyah is a two-time Dakar winner and drives for Mini. Watch what happened when they swapped rides.
The Christmas season is getting more sideways every year. Recently, Mercedes-Benz and its AMG performance division showed us a new way to cook Christmas cookies, and now rival BMW Switzerland is presenting a new way to speed up seasonal caroling. It put four members of the Zurich Acapella Group in an M135i and instructed them to sing Jingle Bells while driver Martin Tomczyk flogged the hot hatch around the Circuit de L'Anneau du Rhin at the same time.
This season marks the end of an era for DTM. Next year the German touring car series switches to new regulations, the new cars will all be coupe-based (or at least look like coupes) and BMW joins in on the action. And with this chapter in DTM history closing, Audi has gone down in history as the undisputed champions. Or at least one of its drivers has.
