DTM Dusseldorf 2007

During the opening of DTM 2007 in Dusseldorf the new W204 C-Class DTM AMG caught fire.

I showed the MB techs this video from Youtube. They say it could be from doing some burning out something might have cut the fuel line and with the exstensive heat from the rear wheel it ignite the fule pump and burst the tank in flames.

Below you find one link about it, but there are more vids about it on Youtube.

Nothing to do with racing.

Cool clip, Düsseldorfs 'Kö', short for Königsallee (Avenue of Kings) is a street full of sidewalk cafes, restaurants and bars. It's a fun City with the Altstadt (old City) for the tourists, and my favorite Oberursel across the Rhine.
At one end of the Kö is the HQ of the German metal institute, whose director parks his clear coated stainless steel or aluminum cars (usually Porsche) outside.
They started this long before De Lorean.

After an incident in 1848, when horse manure was thrown at King Friedrich Wilhelm IV, the road was renamed "Königsallee" ("King's Avenue") as a gesture of goodwill

If you have the time, Lucky Luke has several great Düsseldorf Picture Threads, after his second post, the links are at the bottom of his posts: Düsseldorf: Our Champs-Élysées - The Königsallee - SkyscraperCity

I used to spend a lot of time in that City with our partner in an joint venture in Iran, and therfore kept a home there for several years (don't like hotels).

After the pictures, I am now trying to figure out, whether I can get away for a bit.
