How Audi's new DTM flagbearer is closing on his "childhood dream"

Having learned the ropes in GT3 alongside Rene Rast, Kelvin van der Linde is in line to take up the three-time champion's baton as Audi's new DTM king. From humble origins in South Africa, it's been a remarkable journey so far for the current series leader, but he knows that the 2021 title is a long way from settled just yet.

“DTM is something specifically unique for me because it's something I dreamed about all my career. I never really dreamed about Formula 1 because my dad was a touring car driver in the past for BMW, so I was always watching touring cars instead of Formula 1.”

Those are the words of factory Audi driver Kelvin van der Linde, who leads the DTM standings heading into the business part of the season.
