The array roof will be non-stop for a spectators during many of a DTM events as well. Also new will be a open array stop practice, and a dedicated Fan Village in a paddock featuring a module of shows, exhibitions and food trucks.
“These are sparkling times for a DTM,” says Head of Audi Motorsport Dieter Gass. “With a Pit View we’re charity fans during a venues an event to benefit totally new insights by peeking behind a scenes. We intend to make motorsport even some-more fantastic and are bringing new cars with some-more power, a throatier sound and reduction downforce to a margin for this purpose. The tires reduce faster, are no longer preheated and make even larger final on a drivers than before. During a array stops with fewer mechanics, each mistake will be immediately visible. The format is matching for all 18 races. I’m really most looking brazen to a new season.”
