Mattias Ekström celebrated his third victory of the season, Filipe Albuquerque, as the runner-up got his first podium finish, and Martin Tomczyk in third place is the new DTM Champion.
Third was sufficient for Tomczyk to be the early title winner with a 13-point advantage over his title rival, Bruno Spengler (Mercedes-Benz).
This is Tomczyk first DTM title and the first for Audi Sport Team Phoenix, and it was achieved in a year-old car.
Tomczyk had managed a perfect recovery after starting from tenth on the grid. As early as lap one he was on position six, and in third after his second pitstop.
This is the fifth DTM title for the Audi A4 DTM since its debut in the 2004 season. It represents a fantastic farewell gift for the car since development of the new Audi A5 DTM means it will be used next season.
Depite Tomczyk championship win, Mattias Ekström dominated the racing in Spain. The two-time champion led the field on 38 of the 45 laps. After success at the Nürburgring and Oschersleben, the Swede driving for Audi Sport Team Abt Sportsline celebrated his third victory in four races.
Behind him, Filipe Albuquerque complemented what was a perfect weekend for him. The Portuguese DTM rookie started from position two, defended his place up to the checkered flag, and gave himself and Audi Sport Team Rosberg the best result of the season. He finished 15.847 seconds ahead of Martin Tomczyk.
Subject to an appeal, which two Mercedes-Benz teams have filed against the disqualification of its drivers, three other Audi racers finished in the subsequent places at Valencia.
Timo Scheider, who set the fastest lap, achieved fourth place in front of his Abt team-mates Miguel Molina and Oliver Jarvis.
Mike Rockenfeller took ninth place, Rahel Frey 14th, Edoardo Mortara retired in the pits three laps before the end of the race with a handling problem.
