Period: H1 / January – June (1 round per month)

The Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters – DTM is a touring car series in the mid-90’sis famous for the quality of close racing between very different makes of cars and the quality of drivers it attracted. The driver mix saw some of racings well established racers along with the some of the newest drivers. The established racers included names such as Klaus Ludwig, Keke Rosburg, Alessandro Nannini and more while some of the new drivers included names like Dario Franchetti, Mika Salo, JJ Lehto, Jan Magnussen that would become famous in the following years. The combination of closely matched cars and fast drivers meant the races were always close affairs with door banging and rubbing being more the rule than the exception.

This series will be run on our road track.
