Weekend Preview: 12/13 May 2018

2018 Calendars: DTM

2018 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM)

DTM

Germany’s top series expands to ten race events again, the first time at that number since the series switched to 2 races each weekend.

Once again it will be a battle between three big German marques, Audi, BMW and Mercedes AMG. It will be the final season for Mercedes AMG who will depart for Formula E at the end of the year after 19 seasons, having been present since the rebirth of DTM in 2000.

2018 is set to be the final year of the current rules package, in 2019 there will be new rules closely aligned with Super GT’s GT500 cars.
