THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF DTM MOTORSPORT
- Kick-off: 3-5 May 2019
- Finale: 4-6 October 2019
The German Touring Car Masters (DTM) is one of the most popular touring car series in the world. Motorsport at the highest level, thrilling duels on the race track, stars you can touch, an open drivers’ paddock and all sorts of action away from the racing make DTM one of the most fascinating international racing series. The racing season for this series traditionally starts and ends at the Hockenheimring.
FAN PROMOTIONS AND SUPPORTING RACING SERIES
DTM fans have something to look forward to because down at the racetrack, they get the opportunity to experience the lively comings and goings in the pits. In future, three pits, one per manufacturer, will be open to DTM visitors, giving them an insight into the team’s most important area. Owners of a paddock ticket also get a Pit View. This gives them access to one pit, from where they’ll also be able to see the work going on in the two adjacent garages. And in front of them, they’ll get an open view out into the pit lane. With the Pit View, the DTM is setting new standards and is once again living up to its pioneering role of welcoming fans and allowing fans to get close to the action because there is no other professional racing series of this level where fans can experience the allure of motorsport up close in this way.
Besides the Pit View, DTM is expanding its familiar fan attractions in order to be able to offer its visitors even more on site at the racetrack. In the fan village, the show stage programme provides the entertainment, while the food trucks take care of your physical well-being. Any race visitors wanting a more intense experience of the DTM can go on a special pit walk on Saturday or Sunday morning and experience pit-stop training up close. The paddock ticket will also be upgraded for some racetracks: Where possible, an area of the pit roof will be opened up for the DTM giving you an open view of the pit lane.
Formula 3 – the leading next-generation series in Europe – will launch on the DTM supporting programme in 2019. Whoever shines here has a good chance of getting into a cockpit in the DTM or Formula 1. The new W series, Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup and the Porsche Carrera Cup will also be augmenting the race programme this year.
ACCESS TO THE DTM VILLAGE MOVED: DRIVERS’ PADDOCK NORTH AND SOUTH OPENED FOR FANS
This year, access to the paddock is included for all DTM tickets (while stocks last). In order to make access as safe and easy as possible and to help the flow of people, visitors will have access to two paddock entrances at the Hockenheimring (drivers’ paddock north at the end of the North Stand C and drivers’ paddock south at the Conti roundabout towards the inner stand (“Innentribüne”)). Unlike in previous years, access to the administration level (under Main Stand A) is only permitted for persons with a valid work permit. All entrances are clearly signposted. We would also advise visitors to have their tickets to hand at the entrances to ensure the flow of visitors is as smooth as possible.
