German Touring Car Championship To Host Race In Guangzhou, China In 2014
The German Touring Car Championship (DTM) "will host its race in China on the street circuit of Guangzhou in '14," according to the SID. A 4.1km street course "will be designed and constructed for the race weekend." However, the national and int'l motorsports associations "first have to approve the course design." The DTM's return to China was announced during the Norisring race in the summer. The first two DTM races in China took place in Shanghai in '04 as an invitational race, and in '10 as the final race of the season. Hans Werner Aufrecht, chairman of DTM rights holder ITR, said, "I'm happy that we have found, together with our Chinese partners, a suitable area for a spectacular street course in Guangzhou, which will host the DTM in September 2014" (SID, 11/21).
