DTM: ON THE GRAND PRIX TRACK

The Nürburgring is Germany’s most famous circuit and a permanent fixture on the DTM calendar. For the first of two race weekends at the Nürburgring in 2020, the DTM will be running on the longer Grand Prix version of the circuit in the Eifel. The Nürburgring is also the home round for Audi Sport Team Phoenix. Ernst Moser’s team, which has twice produced the DTM Champion, is based just a few kilometres from the “Ring” in Meuspath. A home victory has proved elusive so far for Audi Sport Team Phoenix.

THE GRAND PRIX LAYOUT IS VERY COOL. THE MICHAEL SCHUMACHER-S SECTION IS VERY FAST AND CHALLENGING. THE LONGER LAYOUT ADDS EVEN MORE OVERTAKING OPPORTUNITIES ON THE CIRCUIT.

RACE FACTS

The DTM normally uses the so-called ‘sprint track’ layout of the Nürburgring, but in 2020, the updated calendar also includes the Grand Prix version. The track features a combination of fast and slow sections and penalises mistakes.


The increased circuit length covers 5.148 kilometres and runs down to the Dunlop hairpin, before turning back through the famous Michael Schumacher-S towards the completion of the lap. Two good overtaking opportunities exist at the end of the start-finish straight and entering the chicane at the end of the back straight.
