DTM 2019

Audi has dominated the first year of the new turbo era in the DTM and won all three championship titles. Since the 2019 season, modern and highly efficient turbo engines have been used in the Class 1 race cars of the popular touring car racing series. This makes the DTM the fastest that it has ever been since its founding in 1984. At the same time, the racing series – just like Formula E in the field of E-mobility – received an increased connection to road car development. And at the end of November, the first joint races of the DTM and Super GT will take place at Fuji (Japan).
