Seems a reasonable idea. DTM has been in Finland in 90s and with emphasis on 'internationalisation' going to a new circuit in Finland could be a possible solution. What I wonder about is whether DTM could attract many people there.

Well they tried to make DTM go global with the ITC and that was doomed to fail. So obviously try not to get too carried away

Kymi Ring would draw a crowd if Kimi was driving. Alfa come back!

Could not agree more, DTM at Brands was underwhelming, again.

I have listed below the number of overtaking moves (after the first lap)into Paddock Bend during the 55 minute plus 1 lap race.

...... zero!

Well I thoroughly enjoyed it The cars are impressive enough to watch to compensate for a lack of overtaking - walking around the circuit and watching how they take the various corners (and the differences in the way each make performs) kept me busy. Seriously impressive.

I agree the spectacle is good, but it doesn't do a lot for the racing, as it is hard to overtake there

Juntos has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
German press is pointing Monza as an alternative to failed Misano.

Yes, and also Anderstorp is in the pipeline.


Monza is planned as start of season, instead of Hockenheim (maybe better weather in April/May)...

DTM has never been to Monza as far as I can remember, so it's going to be interesting to see if it does happen

I love Anderstorp but would it be up standard for DTM to run there? Havenít heard much of the circuit in recent years.

Be cool if Blancpain Endurance ran there-itíd be like BPR or FIA GT all over again

It was stated, that Anderstorp has Grade 2 rating (hope i am right with name) from FIA, so DTM should be ok.

I've got that impression as well. They started quite reasonably and then it kind of slowed down.
