DTM display for Mercedes employees: On Tuesday 8th April, the workers at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Untertürkheim welcomed some celebrity visitors from the world’s most popular touring car series. At a special event laid on for employees and attended by the seven Mercedes-Benz DTM drivers plus Head of Mercedes-Benz Motorsport Toto Wolff, the scene was set for the 30th anniversary season of the DTM. Christian Vietoris opened the proceedings with a flourish: the highest-placed Mercedes-Benz driver from the 2013 season paraded his DTM Mercedes AMG C-Coupé around the works premises led by the DTM Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG safety car with Formula 1’s Bernd Mayländer at the wheel.
The DTM stars then gave a series of interviews in which they discussed their preparations for the new campaign, signed autographs and posed for photos. The factory workers were also invited to try their hand at changing tyres in the pit stop simulator and to compete against Pascal Wehrlein on the race simulator.
