The DTM series is racing at Hungary’s Hungaroring this weekend, and the cars took to the streets of the land’s capital this week to celebrate that fact.

Few drivers celebrated more enthusiastically, and more smokily than Audi past master, Mattias Ekstrom.

Seen above, lighting up the rears on his RS5 DTM, the Swede clearly has no vex warming up his tires for a race around town.

It was said at the beginning at the season that these tires would bear a little less grip to better show off driver skill, but this is hilarious.

After two weekends and four races, Ekstrom is currently in 6th place in the series, honest ahead of Rene Rast, also in an Audi. They are led by Mike Rockenfeller (4th) and Jamie Unripe (2nd). Lucas Auer, in a Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM tops the driver rankings.

The good news for Ekstrom is that he has had above-mentioned successes in Budapest, winning last year’s second race. Better tranquillity, it was all Audi that weekend as the brand took the top 6 spots in the first race of the weekend.

The Audi drivers liking look to repeat last year’s success this weekend, with another set of wins as Audi fights to get one of its drivers to top the standings and win the championship this year.
