DTM confirmed at Spielberg until 2016

The DTM promoters, ITR e.V. have confirmed that the series will head to Austria and Spielberg until the 2016 campaign, 3 weeks after the 2013 race which was won by Bruno Spengler.

The series first raced at the circuit in Styria between 2001 and 2003 and was a Mercedes Benz stranglehold – Marcel Fässler won the race in 2001 and 2003 while the 2002 victory went the way of Bernd Schneider.

Having returned to the circuit in 2011 after an 8 year absence due to renovation work, the circuit was awarded the trophy of ‘organiser of the year’ for the 2012 event at the season opener at Hockenheim. The 2012 Red Bull Ring race was won by Audi’s Edoardo Mortara.

“We consider ourselves fortunate due to being able to provide our Austrian crowds races of the most popular touring-car series worldwide in the coming years, too,” says Walter Kafitz, Project Spielberg’s Head of Marketing and Sales. “The ’Organiser of the Year 2012’ Award for the Red Bull Ring also demonstrates that our cooperation with ITR is just great and that’s something we are really proud of.”

ITR e.V. Chairman Hans Werner Aufrecht is pleased to continue the relationship with Spielberg.

“We feel really comfortable at Spielberg, with DTM,” said Aufrecht. “Therefore, we are delighted with having the chance of racing there in the coming three years, too. Spielberg has got the advantage of being a circuit embedded in the environment, thus automatically making for great motor racing.

“That’s one of the reasons why we love to race at Spielberg. Another one is the great organisation that is absolutely on the level it takes today for holding professional motor-sport events. At the same time, we also have the DTM fans in mind. We want to provide them an even better and nicer experience, during our coming race meetings at the Red Bull Ring. And to be able to do so, we wish for roofed grandstands and an improved parking-area situation,” he concluded.
