It looks as though. Audi will not fund an additional car (at least not in full) so they're looking for somebody like Kubica in BMW i.e. to bring sponsorship.

There must be a few well heeled locals about?

Presumably. One of the candidates is Sergey Sirotkin...

Audi has confirmed that it will expand its DTM programme in 2020 by adding a ninth RS5 for ex-R-Motorsport Aston Martin driver Ferdinand Habsburg.

Good. Much better choice than Sirotkin IMHO

I don't think it was a choice - Habsburg has the cash. If Sirotkin has the cash and wants a drive then I'm sure he'll get one.

Both have cash and both were allegedly in contention. The car was one. So something must have serve as a decider over whom to choose. Maybe it was a bigger budget, maybe Habsburg was closer to Audi or Sirotkin wasn't decided to join DTM at the end of the day.

The question today is - Will DTM survive to this coronavirus crisis?

The new factory Audi liveries

https://www.touringcartimes.com/2020...20-dtm-season/

For me it will be a few rounds to get used to see Green in a car that is not orange/orange-white. Abt cars basically the same, just a little bit different design, Rast's car almost the same.
Tough the Rockenfeller one looks interesting, the yellow brings back the memories of him driving the yellow-green Shaeffler sponsored car.

Yeah, this orange livery stuck so much with Green
But I like these liveries and there are some new sponsors, like Porta on Rast's car or Twin Busch. I wonder are all these just B2B partners or real sponsors?

Let me ask the obvious? Did Green ever race in a green car? I don't remember that he did. Not in the DTM at least.

Well I think Porta and Twin Busch could be, now in the case of Castrol or Aral, more likely a partnership with some sort of sponsoring.

Haha I don't remember it either his name should've been Orange for the last couple of years :P

Yes, Porta and Twin Busch seem like 'real' sponsors but Castrol, Aral and possibly Akrapovic are rather just B2B partners.

I would say, that these sponsors are "real" sponsors....
I don't see Audi using furniture from Porta (which is mainly home furniture) and also Audi will not use TwinBusch-car lifts in their work shop (they are mainly hobby car lifters from china).
Maybe the budgets (which Audi wanted for a year in DTM) were lowered before the season.

Good changes. I like the fact that DTM has made a 'new' calendar and July date for a season opener seems quite safe. It's still not safe enough but there's hope everything will go according to plan.
