The Nurburgring will play host to a round of the DTM championship for a further three years

DTM championship organisers have signed a new three-year deal that will see the Nürburgring circuit play host to the championship series, continuing a relationship that has run for over 20 years.

“The DTM, as the most popular touring car series, has for long been one of the most outstanding motorsport events of the year,” Nürburgring Automotive GmbH’s Jörg Linder said of the announcement.

Linder believed that the return of BMW to the championship, after a 20-year absence, would bring greater crowds to the venue.

“The fans of BMW will be delighted with the return of their brand in the top motorsport. The premium manufacturer is an additional crowd puller,” he added.
