Just like the character in the movie that bears his nickname, Mike Rockenfeller (a.k.a. Rocky) has figuratively gotten back up and dusted himself off following a truly terrifying wreck in Le Mans. Depicted in the video below, the accident that saw his #1 Audi R18 TDI demolished seemed the stuff of real tragedy. Fortunately, the young German driver walked away with minor injuries. Even better, Rocky is back at the Norisring this weekend to assume his role as DTM driver for Audi Sport.
Rocky sat out the previous DTM round although still enjoys strong positioning in the DTM points chase. Unfortunately, he also chose to skip last weekend's 24 Hours of Nurburgring in order to make sure his recovery was complete. And it appears it is complete, as Mike sat down with press today and even took to the track in his A4 DTM.
It's great to see you back Mike. Good luck this weekend.
