The Big DTM TROPHY DESIGN CONTEST - we have a winner!
More than 100 submissions. Three Finalists. A winner! The DTM fan community has decided and chose their favorite on Facebook. We thank all participants for the many creative ideas the drivers for the excellent pre-selection and, of course, all those who have voted. Above all, we congratulate the lucky winner. Now his trophy will be produced!
The fight of the TOP 3 in the fight for the TOP 3
The driver panel did a great job and sent three worthy trophy designs to the race for the podium: each of the three candidates had what it takes to win. But like the DTM, there's only one here. And his name is Erik Ulbricht. His trophy design impressed the DTM fan community on Facebook. He shot full throttle over the finish line and pushed the very strong designs by Catharina Stiegler and Michael Müller to P2 and P3.
Gas runs in his blood
Erik Ulbricht is the winner of our great dtm cup design contest. The 22-year-old is studying product design in Hanover and has gas running in the blood. 13 years ago, he was on the track for the first time. The atmosphere at the lausitzring has immediately packed and shaped him. The DTM has not released him since and has turned to an integral part of his life. Congrats, Erik!
A DTM TROPHY IS BORN
Thanks to Erik's design idea, we now know how the DTM cup will look like in 2017. Until the idea is actually a real trophy, it's still a whole piece of work. Before the trophy will go into production, the perfect materials need to be defined. After all, it's not just any cup, but the DTM CUP 2017. Not only the look counts, but also the quality!
2nd and 3rd place
With its two curved wings this design symbolizes the interaction between man and machine: the one needs the other to win.
The Classic: a modern interpretation of the classic goblet trophy. The distinctive globe is characteristic of previous DTM trophies.
The Cup fever is rising!
The Number 1 of our CUP design contest is fixed. Which driver will take home the dtm cup in 2017, still has to show. This is for sure: it will be exciting. The climate turns rougher and the drivers are not giving up. Fighting is about every inch of asphalt. The hottest picks on the coveted trophy are currently Mattias Ekström, René Rast and Lucas Auer. May the best win!
