      It's been more than a season since British-born Katherine Legge departed from her seat with the Audi Sport DTM squad and we've just got word that she's landed a new multi-year deal.

    2. Essen 2011 Photo Galleries and Wrap-Up



      Often compared to America's SEMA Show, the tuner-focused Essen Motor Show is really something more unto itself. Whereas the SEMA Show is really an industry only affair and with no day for a media push, Essen is there for the public, the car enthusiast and also there as a platform of PR for tuners... so yes, a day reserved for the media.
