I'd like to know how they came to this understanding given that Toyota and Nissan(ESPECIALLY Nissan) have said they'd be there if DTM would just switch to the 2 liter turbos. What have they heard to make them doubt this?

canaglia should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
It's just another step forward.... class A concept has always been a struggle.... recall late 2010 when party were close to finalize specs for japanese, european and american DTM style series worldwide.
BTW after mercedes withdraw I can see DTM survive only if bmw and audi agree to extend to 8 cars.

The specs were finalized and implemented in 2012. But DTM keeps delaying the introduction of the 2-liter turbo I4s.

Is it awful that I want DTM to collapse?...More GTEs please!!

If that happens, I hope they open up the GTE cars a little so they can be around the speed of the outgoing DTM's.

That's the only way to go. DTM has a reputation for having "touring cars" (more like GTs now) that go like top-tier open wheelers, so just throwing in something like GTE is not sufficient.

Two words: "Super GT3." Or even Super GTE.
