DTM – Round 10 – Hockenheim
The DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) is Germany’s top racing series, and the leading touring car championship of the world. The 2018 season spans ten weekends of racing, with five rounds taking place in Germany and five in other European countries. Joel Eriksson is one of six works drivers spearheading BMW’s main factory attack.
The cars used in the DTM are custom-built for the championship by its three manufacturers: BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz. The bodywork is designed to replicate the look of normal road cars, but the performance is more in line with a single-seater racer. The DTM engines provide more than 500 bhp. All drivers are employed by the manufacturers directly, ensuring a high standard of competition throughout the field.
