2003 - 24 uur / hours Nürburgring
Eén van de grootste autosport happenings voor zowel toeschouwers als teams zijn de lange afstandsraces op de Nürburgring en dan met name de 24 -uurs race. Fabrieksteams strijden tegen sterke privéteams en echte amateurs. Dit jaar ging het o.a. tussen Audi, BMW en Opel.

One of the biggest events for spectators and team are the long distance races at the old Nürburgring, especially the 24-hours race. Factory teams, strong privateers and real amateurs battle it out. This year the battle went between Opel, BMW and Audi.

2003 - DTM
Het DTM werd in 2003 nog steeds uitgevochten tussen drie merken: Audi, Opel en Mercedes. Door de Nederlandse inbreng werd de serie steeds populairder in de lage landen.

DTM still had three factories competing in 2003: Audi, Opel and Mercedes. Because a few Dutchmen participated, the series was closely followed by many fans from The Netherlands.

"Le Dakar" didn't even come close to Dakar this year. The raid crossed the north of Africa from west to east and finished at the Red Sea.
