DTM calendar and regulations unveiled for 2021.
After the announcement of the arrival of electric for 2023, the German Touring Car Championship unveils its new regulations as well as its 2021 calendar.
From 2021, the DTM, as per its DTM calendar, will operate with GT3s homologated by the FIA. Like almost all car manufacturers, from Aston Martin to Audi, Bentley, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Honda, Lamborghini, Lexus, McLaren, Mercedes, Nissan to Porsche, DTM have a GT3 sports car in their portfolio and DTM fans can expect a wide variety of brands.
The DTM of the future is more than just a racing series, from the legendary DTM with powerful sports cars as its core to support races through the innovative DTM Electric , the DTM Trophy for young talents and digital motorsport in DTM Esports and finally DTM Classic with historic racing cars from DTM, DRM, Group C and Formula 1.
Expansion of the DTM platform by other high quality racing series remains a possibility. Founded in 1984, the DTM has established itself as a spectacular and moving racing experience for fans in Germany and around the world, over the years.
Independent car balancing, alongside power and capacity, also takes into account such things as the center of gravity and will be set independently for each circuit, ensures equal opportunities for sports cars with their different design concepts.
Presently, DTM is broadcast live in more than 30 countries and seen on TV and streaming over the web, by millions of motorsport fans around the world. In recent years, the DTM has attracted more than 600,000 spectators to the circuits.
Two races per weekend for each series and only one driver per car is a proven recipe and guarantees success, which also applies to the new elements, all strategically intertwined.
For example, the DTM Trophy with its production GT sports cars will serve, more than ever, as a direct springboard to the DTM for young talents. High performance electric racing is at the center of DTM Electric innovation and sustainable development.
With an epidemiological situation that is difficult to predict, the DTM will not launch its 2021 season until the end of May. This gives teams, race series and partners extra time to prepare for the restart.
The program includes 9 race weekends until the beginning of October. With Assen in the Netherlands and Zolder in Belgium, two tours located close to the German border have also been included. The Red Bull Ring in Austria, Monza in Italy and the new Saint Petersburg circuit, complete the DTM calendar for 2021.
