The Nürburgring is a household name all over the world. It is regarded as the mother of all racetracks and the term ‘tradition’ just isn’t powerful enough for describing it. On 18th June 1927, after a construction time of only two years, the circuit staged its first motor-racing event. Since then, the legendary Nordschleife has been both loved and dreaded by the drivers. And at the latest when the British three-time Formula One World Champion Jackie Stewart called the circuit ’The Green Hell’, the myth was born. Up to and including the 1993 season, DTM also contested its races at the Nordschleife. In that year, Nicola Larini made its debut appearance at the Nordschleife and won the race, nevertheless. To provide the fans on site as much race action as possible, the DTM races have been contested on the short version of the GP circuit, since then as this means far more laps and, consequently, more fascination. For the 18 drivers, winning in the Eifel still is something very special.
Enthralling race action and far more
A DTM weekend is far more than just a motor-racing event. Apart from to the enthralling race action provided by DTM and the top-class race series in its support programme, visiting the paddock represents a particular highlight. There’s a lot to be watched and in addition, the DTM aces will be available for autographing sessions and rounds of interviews. And there will be top-class concerts featuring renowned musicians. To cut a long story short: a memorable event for the entire family.
