Zolder

Friday, 17. May 2019 to Sunday, 19. May 2019

In 2019, DTM is making its Zolder comeback. On 11th March, 1994, the series – then still called ‘Deutsche Produktionswagen Meisterschaft’ – contested the very first race in its history at the Belgian circuit. The winner was Harald Grohs with a BMW 635 CSi. The length of the circuit Zolder located at the town Zolder-Terlaemen at Hasselt amounts to 3977 metres and the racetrack was opened in 1963 by the local Motor-Sport Club Zolder. From 1973 to 1984, the circuit staged the Belgian F1 Grand Prix 10 times. In 1982, Canada’s Gilles Villeneuve lost his life at Zolder in a qualifying-session crash. The fast right-hander where the accident occurred has been replaced by the so-called Gilles-Villeneuve-Chicane. Zolder is an interesting circuit with several corners that represent a true challenge for the drivers, such as the fast chicane and the ‘Sterrenwacht-Kanaalbocht-Passage’. DTM already raced at Zolder from 1984 to 1994 and in 2002.
