DTM - three letters which are always guaranteed to get pulses racing. Originating as the 'Deutsche Tourenwagen-Meisterschaft' (German Touring Car Championship), they are the trademark of Europe's biggest touring car series. Over 80,000 spectators line the circuits, while millions of others soak up the action from the comfort of their armchairs every year as the DTM continues to boom. Over 175 countries aired footage from last year's series, with 50+ of those beaming the entire race live or as-live slightly later.
In spite of the restrictive regulations in place the DTM series boasts some of the closest racing in the world and now consists of 11 races across five European countries.
Hockenheim missed out on being the traditional curtain raiser for the 2011 series, but are back in their traditional position of bookending the season, hosting both the opening and climactic final outing of the campaign. For the real the motor-racing enthusiasts, Hockenheimring boasts its very own, motor sport. An exhibition space of 2,200 square metres, the museum showcases more than 300 exhibits from every motor-sport era.
Another attractive destination is the Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim, located just 35km away. In addition to classic cars, racing cars, airplanes, motorbikes, utility vehicles and railway engines, the exposition features two highlights of the aviation history; an Air France Concorde and a Russian Tupolev TU-144 that visitors are invited to board!
