DTM: SPECTACULAR VIEW

The Lausitzring, with its tall grandstands towering over the front straight, provides a fast and technical circuit on the DTM calendar. The venue will be hosting two race weekends in 2020, the first of the back-to-back events at the same venue as part of the updated 2020 schedule. The longer circuit layout will be hosting the second of the two race weekends. For the drivers, it is always breathtaking to drive along the front straight with all of the cheering coming from the fans in the grandstands.

I LOVE THE LONGER VERSION THAT WE HAVE BEEN DRIVING ON WITH THE DTM SINCE 2018. IT IS MORE DEMANDING AND OFFERS MORE OVERTAKING POSSIBILITIES.

LAUSITZRING

RACE FACTS

The Lausitzring has been on the DTM calendar since 2000. The DTM uses sections of the tri-oval and the infield. The second of the back-to-back race weekends at the Lausitzring in 2020 will be held on the longer layout of the circuit with a length of 4.570 kilometres, which made its return to the calendar in 2018.

Because of its combination of curves in the first and final sectors, the Lausitzring is a very special circuit. Here, good grip for the fast corners is just as important as high top speed on the start-finish straight. The best opportunity to overtake is in the braking zone before the first corner.
