Arjun Maini looking to end season on a high at the Norisring

Omega
Seiki
and
J.K.Tyre
backed
Maini
has
steadily
grown
in
the
series,
with
the
Indian
rookie
finding
his
feet
during
the
second
half
of
the
season.
Racing
for
GetSpeed,
who
are
also
new
to
DTM,
Maini
has
excelled
on
the
circuits
he
has
had
prior
experience
on,
meaning
he
is
more
than
capable
of
ending
the
season
on
a
high
given
his
prior
experience
of
the
Norisring
from
his
F3
days.

Maini’s
pace
at
the
previous
round
in
Hockenheim
was
stellar
and
showed
that
the
Indian
driver
is
capable
of
racing
at
the
front
of
what
is
Germany’s
premier
racing
championship.
The
Indian
topped
the
first
practice
session
and
qualified
fifth
and
third
respectively
during
the
weekend’s
two
qualifying
sessions.

While
the
end
results
don’t
reflect
Maini’s
true
pace
in
the
series,
mitigating
factors
have
played
their
part
in
preventing
the
Mercedes
driver
from
claiming
a
podium
finish.
That
being
said,
the
Bangalore-based
racing
driver
will
have
one
last
attempt
this
season
at
meeting
his
aim
of
becoming
the
first
Indian
to
finish
on
a
DTM
podium.

“It’s
incredible
how
quickly
the
season
went
by,”
Maini
stated.

“I’ve
thoroughly
enjoyed
my
time
racing
in
the
DTM
championship
and
it
has
been
a
terrific
year
that
has
seen
me
evolve
as
a
racing
driver.

“Yes
the
final
results
have
lacked
but
the
championship
table
doesn’t
tell
the
entire
story.
I’m
satisfied
with
the
progress
I’ve
made
and
I
hope
to
continue
racing
in
the
championship
come
2022.

“The
Norisring
circuit
provides
a
unique
challenge
for
all
of
us
as
it’s
the
only
street
circuit
on
the
calendar
and
I
hope
my
previous
experience
at
the
venue
will
help
me
end
the
season
strongly.”

The
weekend’s
action
will
get
underway
on
Friday
(October
8)
with
the
weekend’s
two
practise
sessions,
with
the
weekend’s
two
qualifying
sessions
and
races
taking
place
on
Saturday
(October
9)
and
Sunday
(October
10).

The
action
as
always
can
be
followed
