The 2019 DTM champion will be determined from nine events in five European countries. Two races will be contested at each DTM weekend. The races on Saturday and Sunday will take off at 1.30 pm local time. In Germany, SAT.1 broadcasts all races live. In addition, the DTM can be seen on television or via live streaming on YouTube in many other countries.
The DTM rounds are contested on storied European race tracks. Germany is the home of the racing series and, as such, is represented on the 2019 calendar with five events. The Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg serves as the traditional venue for the season opener and finale. At the final round, visitors will be treated to a guest appearance of three vehicles from the Japanese Super GT Championship. On this occasion, the six marques Aston Martin, Audi, BMW, Honda, Lexus and Nissan will compete.
A highlight on the calendar is the race in Nuremberg: The home race for Audi Sport is the only city race in the DTM. In East Germany, the touring car series visits the Lausitzring, about an hour’s drive south of Berlin. The Nürburgring has been a permanent fixture on the DTM calendar since its 1984 debut season. New for this season are the events in Zolder (Belgium) and Assen (Netherlands). Rounding off the 2019 season are the races on the Grand Prix circuit of Brands Hatch close to London (Great Britain) and in Misano near Rimini at the Italian Adriatic coast.
At all nine events, the DTM offers a comprehensive support program with different racing series. Many fans are eagerly awaiting the new W Series, an all-female event that runs exclusively on the 2019 DTM race weekends. The Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup will also be held on several weekends as part of the DTM. After the appearance of international top stars and DJs at selected events in the DTM support program in 2018, a concert in the paddock of the Fan Village is planned for the Saturday evenings of each race weekend. Access to the paddock – and thus the concerts – is included in all ticket categories, as long as tickets are available. Online tickets are generally 10 Euros cheaper than DTM tickets of the same category purchased at the gate on the day. A special feature of the DTM is the “pit view”, which gives fans a glimpse into the pits of the DTM teams Aston Martin, Audi and BMW.
