Since the year 2000 there is a DTM again, the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters. The successful shorthand symbol graced the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft in the years 1984 to 1996, but has been a stand-alone brand for the racing sport series since 2005, which covers nine race weekends this year. This season is the 20th after the creation of the Masters and the 33rd overall, which attracts the fans of touring cars to the racetracks and is organized by the ITR and the German Motorsport Association. In the future, it will soon be drawing level with the Japanese Super GT in order to save costs and create a wider field for the use of the vehicles. Without drivers and fuel, the cars are allowed to weigh 986 kilograms in 2019. They are powered in accordance with the Super GT by 2.0-liter turbo engines, which deliver about 456 kW / 620 hp to the rear-wheel drive.
A racing driver is allowed to use the push-to-pass-function twelve times in a race, with which the power of the four-cylinder can be increased by 22 kW / 30hp in the short term. With this, the cars reach a top speed of more than 300 kilometers per hour! The season final in Hockenheim from October 4th to 6th will be exciting, because there the manufacturers from the Japanese Super GT send - Honda, Lexus and Nissan - each a car to Germany. The vehicles of both racing series meet in late November then in Fuji. Of course there are no modelcars for this event yet, but a look into our warehouse or our webshop reveals an extensive range of high-quality miniatures, which we bring along with many other models in our trailer at the Lausitzring.
