Mercedes has made their announcement to leave DTM at the end of the current season. This has served as something of a wake up call to the management of the series, realizing that they needed to shake up the regulations in an effort to attract more manufacturer support to the series. They’ve been in talks with Japan’s…
There are trick racing videos that leave you deeply satisfied at the end, like where a car fits neatly into a close gap, or pulls off a ludicrously fast, well-choreographed pit stop. This clip of Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters at the Hungaroring is the exact opposite of that. This one left me confused and angry at how…
This is the Audi e-tron Vision Gran Turismo Concept, an all-electric demo car to serve as a race taxi at upcoming Formula E weekends. It should be so much more.
Mercedes, one of the three marques that defines the current era of Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters alongside Audi and BMW, is quitting DTM in 2018 to join Formula E with a full-time works effort in the 2019-2020 season, reports Motorsport.com.

Did Quattro save him?
Did Head of Audi Motorsport Dr. Wolfgang Ullrich really instruct driver Timo Scheider, “Schieb ihn raus!” (or “Push him out!”) over the radio during yesterday’s Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters race? Dr. Ullrich claims that he was on a different channel than Scheider, but the TV edit looks pretty bad.
[Yes, Jon Olsson’s Audi RS6 DTM attacking the snow is just as ridiculous as we expected. Go, chase the dream or something!]
There are a few golden moments in motorsports, not the least of which being the German Touring Car Championship (DTM) in the late ‘80s. It was one of the most sideways, door-banging series of all time, and we often forget one of its heroes.
BMW, like any company worth its salt who wants to stay in good graces with enthusiasts despite making bigger, heavier and more complicated cars, does a lot of racing. Recently, they sent out a wall of text outlining their extensive motorsport plans for next year. Here is the tl;dr version for your convenience.
Mercedes recently hosted its Stars and Cars event in Stuttgart for the year, and apparently DTM cars aren't the burnout machines you'd think they'd be. Poor Susie Wolff just can't get hers to break traction.
Machines! The machines are here to replace us, starting with the Audi RS7 Piloted Driving Concept. One day they're doing a 150 mph parade lap around Hockenheimring, the next a robot is punting your head across the room like a soccer ball.
Marco Wittman just won himself the 2014 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters drivers' championship in his fancy rainbow-covered racing version of the 2015 BMW M4. Congrats, Marco! Now BMW wants you to feel like you can be a champion too with this special edition M4.
Mercedes was doing a PR event earlier today with the German national soccer team and their DTM car. Two bystanders were unexpectedly on the closed circuit and were struck by the car. Sounds like a truly horrible situation.
This is Audi's new RS 5 DTM car. It's worth noting that NASCAR owns the rights to DTM in the United States. Please bring that up the that next time you talk to anyone with the last name "France."
Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, AKA DTM, AKA German Touring Masters, AKA German touring car racing, is huge in Germany. Really huge. Which is why when BMW designs a race car for the new season, they pull out all the stops. This is the new BMW M4 DTM.
Munich (DE), 20th October 2013. BMW Motorsport has completed a successful second DTM season since its return to the series last year. The BMW M3 DTM again emphatically demonstrated just how competitive it is in 2013, with five wins, four pole positions and four fastest laps.
Formula One, DTM, and a whole host of other varieties of racing landed in what might as well have been an alien planet for how out of place it was this week – Jerusalem, Israel.
