Audi Shines at Ball des Sports

Here’s one from the “while you were out (for the weekend)” category: Saturday evening, around 1,800 guests from the worlds of sport, industry, politics, culture and media were invited in Wiesbaden, Germany to attend the 41st “Ball des Sports” of the “Stiftung Deutsche Sporthilfe”.

The guest list also included two Audi factory drivers Timo Scheider and Martin Tomczyk, who used a special ride for the even: the DTM safety car, an Audi RS5.

The event is Europe’s most successful charity gala for sport, being a partner for the DTM, Europe’s most popular touring car racing series, in which Audi managed to become the first carmaker to record a title hat-trick in 2007,2008 and 2009.

This year’s DTM season kicks off on May 1 at the Hockenheimring, being officially rung in with the presentation in Wiesbaden on April 10.

“‘Ball des Sports’ guests received a foretaste of the 2011 DTM at the “DTM Race Club”, which opened late Saturday evening, and at which Timo Scheider and Martin Tomczyk and their respective partners Jessica Hinterseer and Christina Surer met many other well-known athletes. The two DTM stars also tried their hand at wheelchair basketball and thus got an idea of how to operate disabled sports,” stated the press release.

As you can see in the adjacent images, Audi offered attenders a cocktail of motorsport metal and Playboy Bunnies. You can enjoy the combination of Bunnies, RS badges, carbon fiber, generously-sized aerodynamic packages and V8 engines in the gallery bellow.
