WEBMINING> The Golden Years of The DTM Series

Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, dtm, e30, m3, bmw, warsteiner

I was watching Nurburgring related videos and found this video from the original German Touring Car Championship, better known as the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) series. Originally based in Germany, the DTM series expanded to other racetracks throughout Europe and worldwide, running from 1984 to 1996.

Several years after the original Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft series stopped racing, the idea was resurrected and DTM racing returned in 2000 under a slightly different name – Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters with different rules and with semi-international championship status.

I had the privilege to attend a Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters race at Nurburgring in 2007 or 2008. It was an amazing experience because it was my very first trip to The Ring, but as exciting and fun as it was, seeing the newer cars racing together looked nothing like the scenes that this old classic DTM video from the original series shows. Just look at the 190E Mercedes Benzes and E30 M3s flying through the air!!!

Aside from me, who wants a Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3 16valve and an E30 M3 now?!

    That was the best old school DTM video to DATE! Hardcore, like it should be. I have a wrecked E30 M3 that I gotta post for sale. Damn I miss my old car.

  2. EPIC times in racing and DTM champ !!! dope video ! you can also see some Ford Sierra’s, alfa romeo’s 75 and 155 and some audi 80 at the end …. vey nice car’s too !!!

  3. That was Touring Car Racing, i dont like the “new” DTM cause its boring like formula1 and soccer… They have formula1 cars with some more cfk around them, if they lose some flaps or spoilers they cant drive anymore and the cars have nothing to do with the stock original Cars…

    Thats why i only look WTCC, Porsche Cup and Rally on TV, in my eyes they are the last real Race Drivers left! They fight, they rumble, they drive hard and thats sports!
