Audi's Timo Scheider says he has 'unfinished business' at Zandvoort as the DTM circus heads to Holland for the penultimate round of the championship this weekend.

This weekend's penultimate DTM round was set to take place in China, but that project has been put on ice after construction issues put the event behind schedule, meaning Zandvoort keeps it's place on the calendar for another year.

Phoenix Audi's Scheider will have no qualms with that as the 2008-09 DTM champion is something of a Zandvoort specialist with four pole-positions to his name around the popular Dutch circuit.

Scheider, however, has endured terrible luck at Zandvoort and has yet to win a race around the former GP circuit. The German, most memorably, cruelly saw a certain victory slip away back in 2003 when a pit-stop error, whilst driving for Opel, cost him a famous win.

The 35-year old believes he can use his Lausitzring podium to good effect at Zandvoort this weekend.

"I've got a very special relationship with Zandvoort," says Scheider. "I've clinched the majority of the pole positions in my career there but, at the same time, have some major unfinished business there because victory was within reach.

"This year would be a good time to finish this business. We're going to take the positive energy from the podium at the Lausitzring with us to the North Sea coast."
