The 2020 DTM Champion will be decided at nine events in three European countries. Due to the corona pandemic, an exceptional calendar has arisen.
Originally, the DTM had set itself an ambitious programme for 2020 with dates in Germany, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia and Sweden. The circumstances of the pandemic now force those responsible to create a very compact calendar of nine events on six circuits within just 14 weeks. After an absence of 15 years, the DTM returns to the legendary Ardennes circuit of Spa-Francorchamps and contests its season opener there on the first weekend in August. On two consecutive weekends, the racing cars will start at the Lausitzring about an hour’s drive south of Berlin before the DTM returns to the circuit of Assen in the Netherlands. Immediately afterwards, two rounds at the Nürburgring are on the agenda so that the drivers will contest a total of six DTM races on three consecutive weekends. In September, the racing cars will start in the Eifel region, first on the Grand Prix circuit and then on the short circuit. The Nürburgring has been part of the DTM calendar since its debut year 1984. In October, the fans in Zolder, Belgium, look forward to two visits within just one week before Hockenheim marks the already traditional season finale in November.
At all events, the DTM offers an extensive support program with changing race series, including the new DTM Trophy for close-to-production GT sports cars and the club racing series GTC Race.
