I hope the series doesn't die..
I see this as an opportunity to try something new, its clear the DTM formula was struggling so now they have the chance to start over. Personally my dumb hot take would be that they should get widebody mini SUVs/crossovers whatever you want to call them. Imagine 450+ bhp or so but its actually very relevant to what is selling at the moment so the field could get massive.

That's the worst idea ever. SUVs as a class are already so pointless... imagine turning them into road racing cars..

Seriously why?? a dead series and one that most don't bother with, so much more they could of been doing and not wasting time on, first time I have been disappointed in their new content, still atleast we have a choice not to buy.

I'm actually slighty excited about these cars as I'm really looking forward to the sound of these :D

I just hope that they might bring some older DTM cars into the sim (f.e. the 2000 season or the 2019 Aston Martin).

I don’t think your right. In AC the paid mod from URD is quiet popular in league racing. The cars are great fun to race and a requested frequently to be added to several game.

But yeah it is a risk for race room to add them at this moment, now DTM as we currently know it is most likely dead. But I still think the cars itself will be popular within sims racing.
Well I have experience with managing leagues and keeping an eye on other communities on the peak of a game with mods, trust me when something looks popular it looks like a big deal, in a few years you look back and just laugh at how you thought things were big when they really weren't.
DTM just isn't much popular. Nothing against having it in a sim but there are other cars RR could gain way more than spending $$$ and time (which also means $$$) on this. A grid to race with the Porsche GTE for example would benefit way more
Sure the few people that love to praise different content just to stop using them a month later will disagree.

To be fair, they are in the RD R3E club. We even ran a league with them not so long ago, and turnout was excellent.
RD traffic can make anything look popular ;)
Look at some of your AMS leagues, you were basically the only ones reaching grids close to 30 drivers with some of the cars in that sim and even RD had a hard time to go above 30
*note that I said some cars

But it sells and thats what matters, we might not like SUVs but they are insanely popular and completely unexploited in motorsport.

So it's only the BMW and the Audi for the 2020 season? Not that I am against getting more content, and I like DTM in Raceroom. But besides the cars, is there anything else that could come over from the 2020 season? This news is kind of underwhelming to be honest.
