The DTM is finally planning to open the grandstands according to the current planning status. Ten Thousand fans will be permitted on each Saturday and Sunday at Assen for the fourth round over the weekend of September 4-6. This will be the first chance for fans to experience the sights and smells of the traditional duel between BMW and Audi at the 2.8-mile (4.54 km) long track in the Netherlands.
“This is great news for us and for all the fans of the DTM.,” said Gerhard Berger, chairman of ITR e.V. “We can hardly await finally welcoming spectators at the track. The DTM got its season off to a strong start at Spa-Francorchamps and a pleasing number of viewers has been watching the race action on TV and the online platforms. However, excited fans on the grandstands are a part of a race, not only at Assen but hopefully also during further rounds of the 2020 DTM.”
This will be only the second time that the DTM has raced at Assen following a successful premiere last season, the winners last year being Marco Wittmann (BMW) on Saturday and Mike Rockenfeller (Audi) on Sunday.
Fans that get tickets will not only experience the fourth round of the DTM season but also the Belcar Endurance Championship, the Touring Car Classics, the Supercar Challenge and the Mazda MX5 Cup. This really promises to be a weekend of intense racing action.
To comply with the required hygiene and safety measures and above all to keep the minimum distance of 1.5 metres, the number of available seats is limited. The grandstands will be strictly separated and allocated according to the spectators’ means of transport, by car or public transport.
“As the organizer of the DTM race in Assen, we have drawn up a Covid-19 plan in cooperation with our partners.” stated CEO of LPD International b.v., Lee van Dam “A big advantage is that the TT Circuit Assen offers a lot of space. We have the longest grandstand in Europe, on which we have the opportunity to welcome 10,000 fans per day while maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5 meters, with parking lots at each grandstand, direct access to each sector and the assigned seats.”
As paddock access remains not admitted and spectators also will have to do without the popular show acts, for the time being, the ticket price has been reduced from the regular rate of up to 79 Euros down to 49 Euros for adults (youngsters from 7-14 years: 24.50 Euros, children up to 6 years for free). The grandstand tickets, as well as parking tickets for the DTM event, are only available in pre-sale until Friday, 4th September, 18.00 hrs. From this time on, previously purchased tickets for Assen that haven’t yet been converted to vouchers, are no longer valid. Vouchers that have already been issued can be redeemed at any time and regardless of the event in the DTM Ticket Shop and via the DTM Ticket Hotline.
Get your one-day tickets for Saturday or Sunday are available at 49 Euros from the DTM Ticket Shop or the DTM Ticket Hotline (+49 1806 386 386).
