2018 Lausitzring | DTM


Friday, 18. May 2018 to Sunday, 20. May 2018

The year 1999 brought the end for Berlin's legendary AVUS. An important chapter of the German motor-racing history was closed but at the same time, the first pages of a new one already were written. Just one year after the final race in the heart of Germany's capital, on 20th August 2000, 110,000 spectators travelled to Klettwitz to witness the Lausitzring's opening ceremony. And two weeks later, DTM made its first appearance at the racetrack that is located further to the east than any other German racetrack - and returned to the venue in every single season, since then. Although the debut was massively rained off.

Race highlights

The DTM carries out two races on all race weekends. The distance is always 55 minutes plus one lap.

The ADAC Formula 4 is the formula beginner series in Germany. Here are young talents for larger tasks.

In the Audi Sport Seyffarth R8 LMS Cup, super sports cars from Ingolstadt are entering the race.

The Tourenwagen Classics takes the classic DTM cars of the 1980s and 1990s back onto the track

On the region: The Lausitzring is located in Brandenburg, in the Lausitz region (Slavic for marshy meadow).

Grandstand lead: 'Haupttribüne' upper tier: very high and steep, good vision of the entire infield and the pit-lane action.

The must-have souvenir: 'Get One' - a small snack for all occasions. A real Spreewald cucumber in a can.

Culture lead: Spreewald (historic channel landscape), the former cloth-maker city of Cottbus with its Staatstheater (50 kilometres away).

To be tried at all costs: Potato in the skin with curd and linseed oil, Peitzer trout, 'Fürst-Pückler Ice' (combination of strawberry, vanilla and chocolate ice in a waffle).

Attention, slang: geh'mamal = let's go, Plinsen = pancake, kipp hinter! = drink up!

For partygoers: Youth culture centre 'Glad-House' in Cottbus; students' club 'Bärenzwinger' in Dresden (disco, concerts, cabaret, readings, games and sport).

Shop here: Dresden: the baroque 'Königstraße', flea market at Dreden's bank of River Elbe - one of the biggest and most beautiful flea markets in Germany.
