Hockenheim opening

Friday, 3. May 2019 to Sunday, 5. May 2019

The Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg is – apart from the Nürburgring – Germany’s most tradition-rich racetrack. The circuit staged its first motor-racing events back in 1932. With the exception of the year 1985, the Hockenheimring was a constant on the DTM calendar of every single DTM season. Traditionally, the circuit is the venue of the DTM season finale. In the past two years, this season finales proved to be real thrillers, with the long, exciting battles for the titles being taken down to the final races. When the last race ends with the famous fireworks, the last points of the season have been scored, the champagne will flow like water and the champion finally may raise his trophy in the air.


Race highlights

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