Marco Wittmann in the #11 Walkenhorst Motorsport M6 GT3 scored his second win of the DTM season in the Saturday race at Assen in the Netherlands, recovering from a slow pit stop that dropped him to fifth to secure the victory. Sheldon van der Linde in a Rowe Racing M6 GT3 finished sixth on Saturday.
Wittmann finished on the podium again on Sunday, coming in third behind Mercedes racer Lucas Auer and Liam Lawson in a Ferrari. The nineteen-year-old Lawson leads the points going into Hockenheim on the first weekend in October. Wittmann, a two-time DTM champion, is second in points.
This year, the Hockenheim event, traditionally the DTM finale, will be the penultimate event. The season will end on the Norisring on October 8–10.—Brian Morgan
