Track owners Motorsport Vision have announced a three year deal to host a round of the DTM championship at Brands Hatch.

The German-based tin top championship has visited the Kent track since 2006, and the new deal secures the round on the 1.2 mile Indy circuit through to 2014.

We're delighted DTM will continue to stage its only UK round at Brands Hatch for the foreseeable future,” said Jonathan Palmer. “The professionalism of the championship is outstanding, the cars spectacular to watch and the calibre of the drivers second to only F1. With the addition of BMW and new technical regulations designed to make the racing even better, it's a very exciting time to partner DTM and we look forward to Brands Hatch's DTM event being one of the highlights of our calendar for many years to come.”

The newly confirmed event becomes the third round of the 2012 season, scheduled for May 20.

The latest crop of DTM machinery lap the circuit some seven seconds faster than British Touring Cars, and 2012 will bring a new manufacturer – BMW – and new cars built to a new rules formula. Drivers include ex-F1 driver turned commentator David Coulthard alongside fellow Brit Gary Paffett. Multiple WTCC champion Andy Priaulx will also join the series for the 2012, the Channel Islander set to be one of BMW's leading drivers.

They join the leading continental drivers of the series including Ralf Schumacher, 2011 champion Martin Tomczyk and past winners Mattias Ekstrom and Timo Scheider.
