One month after the appetite stimulant on the traditional Baden race track, the journey continues to Spain. The run in Valencia replaces the guest appearance in Barcelona. The bolides are not on the spectacular Grand Prix racetrack in the marina but on the Ricardo Tomo Circuit, which is around 20 kilometers outside of the city.

Second guest appearance in Shanghai?

In addition to Barcelona, ​​Dijon has also been dropped from the calendar. With Zandvoort and Brands Hatch, two traditional DTM circuits remain in the program. However, the final race on October 31 in Shanghai should be the big highlight of the season. In the Chinese port city, the touring cars will do their laps for the first time after 2004.
