The 2022 DTM Season, formally known as the 2022 DMSB Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters Championship, will be the twenty-third season of the DMSB Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters Championship and the thirty-sixth iteration of Germany’s premier touring car racing. The season was initially scheduled to consist of eighteen races spread across nine race meets, commencing in Portimo and ending in Hockenheim.
The Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (DTM) is a grand touring car series sanctioned by ITR e.V, which has been associated with the DMSB-FIA since 1984. The series is based in Germany, with rounds taking place throughout Europe. The series now races modified Group GT3 grand touring vehicles rather than the silhouette later Class 1 touring cars of previous years. From 2000 through 2020, the new DTM replaced the former Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft and ITC (International Touring Car Championship), which had been terminated due to exorbitant expenses after 1996.
Over the past 35 years, the DTM has established itself as one of the world’s most challenging, spectacular, and popular touring car series. 13 teams and six brands participated on eight race weekends in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, and the Netherlands in 2021. The classic series, led by motorsport icon Gerhard Berger, featured well-known racers such as Timo Glock, Alex Albon, Liam Lawson, and Sophia Flörsch. Maximilian Götz won the drivers’ championship in a Mercedes-AMG in a thrilling conclusion, while AF Corse won the team championship.
On September 3, 2021, an initial nine-round calendar for the 2022 DTM Championship was released, with the season beginning outside of Germany for the third consecutive season. The series would then move inside the German border for its debut race, featuring four races in Germany and five across Western Europe.

DTM Race Plot Proposal
The season would begin at a completely new venue for the DTM, the Algarve International Circuit in Portimao, Portugal, on April 29 – May 1, marking the series’ first race in Portugal. The Lausitzring, which preserved its banked first corner, would host the second round on the 20th and 22nd of May, followed by a pair of ‘To Be Announced’ rounds on the 3rd and 5th of June and the 17th and 19th of June. The season’s first half would conclude at the famous Norisring, holding its annual DTM round on July 1 – 3.
After an almost two-month hiatus, the DTM would return with a familiar blast around the Sprint Circuit at the Nürburgring, initially scheduled for August 26-28. The series would then return to Belgium’s Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps on September 9-11, followed by a pair of races at Austria’s Red Bull Ring on September 23-25. The season was planned to culminate on the 7th and 9th of October at the Series’ home track, the Hockenheimring, with the DTM Trophy and DTM Classic Cup supporting practically every event except the season opener.
DTM Race Invitation to Imola:
A few weeks after the preliminary calendar was released, it was revealed that the Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari would be added to the schedule, taking the second of two ‘TBA’ slots on the 17th and 19th of June. It would be the Series’ inaugural visit to the circuit near Imola, Italy, and would effectively replace the 2021 season opener at the Autodromo Nazionale Monza. The calendar slot of June 3 – 5 remained free, with the DTM still aiming to organize a race outside of Germany.
The 3 – 5 June round was canceled on December 23, 2021, after ITR e.V. canceled its contract with the promoters of the round, which had been staged in Assen since 2019. With the elimination of that round, the calendar now has eight rounds and sixteen races, four in Germany and four outside of Germany, with no intentions to add to the total.
WHY YOU MUST VISIT THE DTM RACE IN SPIELBERG:
In 1969, the Austriaring circuit in Styria opened its doors. Spectacular Formula 1 races at the high-speed track contributed significantly to the facility’s global fame, but sports cars and touring cars also provided plenty of action. The track was cut and reworked in the mid-1990s. After a few years of inactivity, the track was reopened in 2011 under the Red Bull Ring banner. The facility is regarded as one of the greatest in Europe, with first-rate amenities for teams, drivers, and fans. The Red Bull Ring is home to several DTM teams.
Red Bull Motorsport is located in the picturesque landscape of Styria and offers a superb combination of nature and racing. Because of the topography, there is a lot of undulation, which adds to the challenge for the drivers. The Red Bull Ring is easily accessible from all directions through motorways and widened A-roads. Graz and Vienna have the closest airports.
The Red Bull Ring DTM weekend is an actual family motorsport festival. There is a diverse on-track racing program with DTM, DTM Trophy, DTM Classic, and appealing support categories, but there is also a complete off-track program. It is the final race weekend for the Red Bull Ring so everything will be out!
Exceptionally close to the action
Visitors to the Red Bull Ring have numerous options to watch racing: from the spectacular grandstand, they get a superb view of a large portion of the circuit, and the same can be said from the back straight, which provides an unsurpassed panoramic view of the Mur valley. Nothing like this can be found at any other racetrack in the world! Of course, a visit to the paddock is also required: with the pit walk, pit view box, and various other attractions, DTM brings guests up close and personal with the action.
Take advantage of Styrian hospitality.
From high-quality cuisine to regional delicacies, from a comfortable hotel to a cozy family guest house, the territory surrounding the Red Bull Ring offers a wide range of Styrian hospitality. There are also camping facilities at the race track for those who wish to be in the middle of the action.
