2019 Calendars: DTM

DTM

One of Europe’s premier series.

Audi and BMW resume battle. Mercedes AMG have pulled out, but there will be a presence of sorts from Aston Martin, which is an interesting development.

New “Class 1” rules come into effect as part of a close partnership with Super GT in Japan.

Lots of changes starting with a reduction back to 9 race meetings this year after 10 last year.

Lausitz gets a reprieve after a scare in which it seemed no racing would happen there again, but it moves from May to August.

Misano goes the other way, from August to June.

Zolder joins the calendar at Round 2, at the expense of the Hungaroring.

Assen, the Dutch home of motorcycle racing, takes over from Zandvoort.

And we lose the Red Bull Ring in Austria.

In:

  • Zolder
  • Assen

Out:

  • Hungaroring
  • Zandvoort
  • Red Bull Ring

Support races include the outgoing Formula 3, formerly the FIA F3 European Championship, which retains the same cars and is now known as Formula European Master. The F1-supporting GP3 Series has taken on the Formula 3 branding from this season onwards. Other supports include the slightly controversial all-female W Series also using Formula 3 level cars.
