    I'd say DTM is closer to Stock Car Brasil and the likes. Sure, they call it touring cars, but seriously, IMO they aren't.

    I know what you mean, they're a bit too advanced for touring cars, they have more in common with F1 than the BTCC.

    Yeah, "wrong way around", one could say: Not a street car made into a race car as a touring car would be, but a purpose-built race car made to look similar to some street car models.
