The Imola racetrack will also have the DTM in the 2022 season.
As anticipated at the beginning of September, the German series will also be on stage in Italy next year.
Monza had hosted the first round of 2021 and the ITR promoter had stated that the negotiations for a replica in the Bel Paese were nearing completion.
Today the official announcement has arrived that the “Enzo e Dino Ferrari” circuit on the banks of the Santerno will welcome the DTM on the weekend of 17-19 June, as the fourth round of the series.
An absolute novelty for the track, which over the weekend will also have activities related to the support series, namely DTM Trophy – for GT4 cars – and DTM Classic for the cars of the past.
“After the announcements of Formula 1 and the European Le Mans Series, here is another prestigious championship that has chosen Imola for its Italian round – comments the Director of the Autodrome, Pietro Benvenuti – The DTM is undoubtedly one of the most important series in European level, both for the drivers who race there and for the performance of the cars, which from this year are GT3 “.
“I am convinced that enthusiasts will not miss the opportunity to be present at this novelty for the Imola racetrack, a championship that in recent years has been able to carve out a leading role in the panorama of four-wheeled sporting events”.
Frederic Elsner, DTM Events and Operations Director for ITR, added: “The Imola track has an impressive history and is known as a challenging and fast track. It fits perfectly into our calendar and is another track that demands the most from our drivers and teams. “
“Furthermore, DTM has a close link with Italy, in particular thanks to the participation of Italian drivers and teams. We look forward to the first outing on this famous track”.
