I think it is utterly fantastic that we have two more British drivers in the DTM to boost the roster to six with Paffett, Di Resta, Green and Stoddart. Legge has always been highly regarded but she sometimes has not quite had the breaks with competitive machinery but she should be fairly competitive in a two year old A4 with Jarvis will be there and thereabouts in last years Championship winning A4. So it is making the DTM even better. It is just a shame that if you want to watch the DTM you have to watch on Sentanta or Motors TV. Because with the increased number of British drivers and the prospect of 3 potentially Championship challenging drivers I am quite surprised that BBC or ITV.

More than a quarter of the grid is British - brilliant! Think this proves British motorsport is very much alive and kicking - better than football and rugby at least, which the media spend most of the time dwelling over!

True, although if that was the ultimate case then they'd have more than 3 German drivers or maybe an American one, since they are much more vital markets for them. I know marketing is important for Audi (and DTM as a whole), but the only motorsport that gets that much marketing coverage over here is the R10 because of the TDI.
