Putting for charity
Some of the DTM professionals started the Norisring weekend by contesting a charity golf tournament. At the Habsberg 18-hole course, at Velburg, Bernd Schneider, Gary Paffett, Team principal Hans-Jürgen Abt, Team Manager Hans Jürgen Mattheis, ARD DTM expert Klaus Ludwig and Race Director Roland Bruynserade teed up for charitable uses. At the end of the day, Klaus Ludwig and his son, Luca, proved to possess the best swing.
RIn brilliant sunshine, the DTM drivers hadn’t to bother split or lap times, this time. On the golf course, it’s all about concentration, a good swing and the perfect club choice. At the same time, this charity event offered the competitors the chance of improving their handicap. The event’s sponsors, Dunlop and Autobild Motorsport, and the donations of the competitors such as Germany’s former national goalkeeper Andreas Köpke, female racing driver Christina Surer and former ski jumping ace Dieter Thoma support the project ‘Lagune 2000’. This project is a children aid programme in Nuremberg’s zoo, relying on dolphins and unique all over Europe. The dolphinarium is supposed to be opened in 2006.
