2008: Reward at last ...
Champion: Timo Scheider
Eight years or 79 races – this is how long Timo Scheider had been waiting for his first victory in the DTM – until Oschersleben in 2008. But that was just the start for the Audi driver: In
a thrilling duel he prevailed against his Mercedes-Benz rival Paul Di Resta, who was making a strong showing towards the end of the season, and was celebrated as the 2008 DTM Champion at the Hockenheim finale.
