    Yeah DTM has really embraced new media to air their own series but also focus on their partners. The way to interest motorsport fans for sim racing :)

    I look forward to DTM-US and hope it does well over here.
    I just wish more manufacturers would get into DTM, like it was in the late 80s to mid 90s

    Its not about manufacturers, its about the regulations. DTM became so complicated that any slight touching breaks the nice aero package and the driver can consider retiring since the car isn't competitive if a canard or a wingled breaks off.

    Racing should revert to Class 1 and Class 2 touring cars. :D

    Also, in the 80's-90's, wasnt there just MBenz, BMW, Audi and Alfa Romeo? Those who had funding to be competititve atleast... About the same ammount as now.

    Well there was Opel, Volvo, and I seem to recall Ford as well. IIRC there were like 6 or 7 manufacturers in the original DTM series.
