DTM: SPECTACULAR VIEW

The race weekend at the Lausitzring is the only DTM event in the east of Germany. A special feature of the Lausitzring is the tall grandstand that towers over the start-finish straight, from which the fans can see all of the action. For the drivers, it is always breathtaking to drive along this straight with all of the cheering coming from the grandstand.

THE LARGE NUMBER OF FANS IN THE PADDOCK AND IN THE GRANDSTANDS ALWAYS MAKES FOR A VERY SPECIAL ATMOSPHERE AT THE LAUSITZRING. YOU CAN PARTICULARLY FEEL THAT ON THE GRID WHEN THE CARS ARE BEING PUSHED IN FRONT OF THE HUGE MAIN GRANDSTAND.

RACE FACTS

The Lausitzring circuit is very special due to its combinations of turns in the first and final sectors. Good downforce is needed for the fast corners, just as much as a high top speed on the start-finish straight.

 

The best overtaking possibility presents itself in the braking zone before the first corner, thus making it very important for drivers to get a good exit out of the final corner.
