 Fire 44 celebrates DTM champion

Only once a year all the bosses of the motorsports, drivers, managers and mechanics of Mercedes, Audi and BMW as well as supporters of the DTM gather: at the great gala right above the pit walk when the new champion is announced. 



Traditionally, all the DTM community, including  Norbert Haug, David Coulthart, Ralph Schuhmacher, Dr.Ullrich, Hans-Jürgen Abt, Matthias Ekström and Jens Marquart, Charly Lamm, like to celebrate with Fire44! For more than 10 years the skilled musicians from Bavaria have been enthusing racing fans in whole Europe. 



The band accompanied the DTM to  Barcelona, London, Dijon, Zaanfort, Brünn, to the Adria-, A1- , Lausitz-, Noris-, Nürburgring- in short almost all the race tracks- to provide the people there with a great variety of rock and pop songs and a good atmosphere.



No wonder that many many ones of the DTM community have become more than friends to Fire44.



Parties for the new champion of  Team Audi-Abt in Kempten and Las Vegas  or the Rally Paris-Dakar of VW in Wolfsburg, for companies like Audi-Quattro in Neckarsulm, Dekra at the  Lausitzring and VIP-Parties in whole Europa: Fire44 !!



Even BMW, new at the DTM, couldn’t resist to party with Fire44- the best drivers knew the band too well!


What is more, at the last but gripping race, BMW won all the titles! 


Last year the band celebrated with Martin Tomzcyk from Rosenheim (Bavaria), but this year it was Bruno Spengler’ s turn. Everybody shared the Canadian’s happiness after 7 years in the DTM without the being champion for mostly technical reasons. 




Fire44 and Spengler



Bruno Spengler wanted Fire44 to play „Simply the best“ when he presented his cup in the evening.


Fire44- now 7 people including Benedikt Dorn (voc, git.) und Georg Neugebauer (voc.), Gerhard Groß (bass), Frank Schöftenhuber (voc., key,trp.), Red Lock (dr.), Elke(voc.) and Oliver Hein (git.) made the crowd party at the dancefloor in Hockenheim till the wee hours of the morning.



ARD- sports moderator Claus Lufen: „I know some great bands playing at the DTM, but Fire44 is different, because you see that they really have fun on stage every single time!“ 





The Fire still burns

Fire44- the fire still burns!


On Friday, November12th, the coverband Fire44 celebrates its 15th  anniversary in the big gym in Pittenhart.


For this mega-birthday-party DJ Starbeat from Bochum, joined by hot gogo-dancers, will provide for the best atmosphere on the dancefloor.


An extra hot show can be expected when Fire44 will enter the stage then, having „Matrix-Reloaded“ as a motto!
