Friday 17 - Sunday 19 May 2013

DTM is the world's most spectacular touring car series, with V8-powered racers representing Germany's big three manufacturers: Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The cars may resemble their road-going equivalents but underneath are closer to Formula 1 machines!

Bromley's Gary Paffett will be out to avenge his 2012 championship defeat by just a single point, and victory at home this Sunday will strengthen his bid to add a second DTM title to his collection. However Brit Jamie Green will also be out to win, following his off-season switch to Audi, as well as BMW's Andy Priaulx, former triple World Touring Car Champion.

DTM remains a popular destination for Grand Prix drivers and Timo Glock is the latest to sign up for the series, whilst F1-style DRS and option tyres will spice up the action. It also attracts racing stars from all over the world to spectate - Brands Hatch will be the centre of the motorsport world at DTM this month!
