One of the tracks that has been associated with the DTM over the years, especially from the early days of the category, has now re-signed and extended its contract until and including the 2016 championship.

The etropolis Motorsport Arena Oschersleben will keep the DTM coming back to the Magdeburger Börde  region, where we saw Augusto Farfus take victory for BMW Motorsport last year, which kept his title hopes alive until Zandvoort.

The agreement was made between both ITR Chairman Hans Werner Aufrecht and the circuit’s CEO, Thomas Voss. Aufrecht himself explained that the series is well received in the region and that it has a significant following.: “The track operators are very professional and work with a lot of passion. In consideration of these facts it was just logical for us to extend the deal up to and including 2016. We are looking forward to the next years of this partnership.” 

Voss explained that the appearance of the DTM at the track itself is their “season highlight,” which helps to keep stability within its planning schedule, which can obviously change due to certain circumstances, especially when it involves governing bodies, but is nevertheless happy at the fact that the deal has been finalised.

I’d like to thank the ITR board for the confidence they have shown us and am convinced that we will continue, in cooperation with ADAC Weser- Ems e.V. as sports organizer, to witness thrilling and – first of all – well organized races, in the coming years,” added Voss

Out of the forthcoming ten races that sees the series travel to China and Hungary this year, Oschersleben will now host the second race of the year, and will take place a fortnight after the customary race weekend at the Hockeheimring on the first weekend of May.
