Those bosses who commented are really lame in GT500. First of all GT500 are Klass 1 plus alfa - at least they have jet ignition and more power. Secondly, all cars are leased by the teams, no team has own car.

It's well known that Nissan refused to sell cars to Konrad and Lexus to the Swiss team.

First Iíve heard of either of those happenings.

No real surprise. The Japanese like to keep their GT500 cars close and are very selective on who runs them. Even trying to buy an older chassis that hasnít raced for years is hard if you donít have the connections.

Those Super GT500 cars come with a lot of technology. Jap-automakers don't want them in wrong hands I guess.

Very much so. All of the GT500 cars Iíve seen in private hands (could count them on one hand) didnít come with a drivetrain.

On a slight tangent thereís a GT300 Vemac in America and the owner is trying to put a stroked NSX motor in it. Heís on instagram

I went to last years' DTM at Brands and it was far less busy than expected, I'd say maybe half the crowd of BTCC. There's a lot more down time on the track with bigger gaps in the support package. Less racing + higher prices seemed to keep the crowds away a bit

Just came back from the Saturday activities. I certainly enjoyed it, but I expected a bit more, especially from the race action and surrounding scenery.

Between an online delivery and today, I've bought a dozen of model racecars. However I really couldn't convince myself to spend 60 euros for an AF Corse Ferrari.

Hope you did it for a Aston Martin Vantage DTM. Money has no fatherland!

Would be interesting, what you are critical on?
Or what could be better.

There were few overtaking attempts, especially in race 1.

The venue wasn't as well maintained as I expected. Behind the grandstands there was dirt, and when wind blew the air got dusty.

It was a nightmare to cross the track. Twice we were told to stay in the grandstands of the main straight, rather than finishing crossing it all. This means we had no time to visit the paddock/fan village on Sunday.

Ok, thats mainly the problem of non-permanent racetracks. I remember my visits at DTM Race in Singen around 1992, where you needed to walk through a muddy field to go on grandstand on mainstraight. Visit to Paddock was only possible, when coming or going to parking lot.


And yes - overtaking was not that much. I expected also more, but i think, power and traction is already to high. It needs some instability and not that much power to have interesting overtakes.

It's the brakes and traction that are the problem - if they're too good then overtaking is made more difficult. The power is not an issue (and if aero was reduced then the power would make driving more difficult - more mistakes and more overtakes.)

I've only seen the DTM in the flesh at Donington and Brands Hatch (Indy and GP circuits) - the cars are at their best through the quick sections (they're much better on the GP loop than the Indy circuit at Brands for example). I don't know whether the Norisring is the best circuit for these cars? (It's an iconic venue but it may not show the cars off at their best?)

Not as big or busy as BTCC but usually busier than British GT - don't know if that helps?
