The annual Essen Motor Show kicks off this weekend and many Audi race cars are represented at the event.

Our good friend Mr Fabian Wiedl was at the show on Friday and he has provided us with some great photos. It is wonderful to see Audi being well represented at the Essen Motor Show. DTM displays were on site, as well as the 2013 DTM champion, Mike Rockenfeller, who was signing autographs at the Eibach Federn, DTM and displays on Friday. Fellow Audi Sport drivers Adrien Tambay, Jamie Green and Filipe Albuquerque will also be at the show on specific days during the event running from 11 November to 8 December.

Three Audi RS 5 DTM cars wearing Rocky's 2013 DTM winning livery were on display, two race cars and one show car. A display featuring the Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline pit area also included one of the Red Bull liveried Audi RS 5 DTM cars alongside one of the DTM chassis'. A DTM championship winners display included a number of championship winning DTM vehicles, including seven Audi cars: 1990 #44 Audi V8 quattro DTM of Hans-Joachim Stuck, 1991 #45 Audi V8 quattro DTM Evolution of Frank Biela, 2002 #3 ABT-Audi TT-R of Laurent Aiello, 2004 #5 Audi A4 DTM R11 of Mattias Ekström, 2007 #3 Audi A4 DTM R13 of Mattias Ekström, 2008 #10 Audi A4 DTM R14 of Timo Scheider and the 2011 #14 Audi A4 DTM R14 of Martin Tomczyk.
