WEBMINING> DTM Battle for Deutschland

Wow, this has got to be one of the best videos i have ever seen on YouTube. I just happened to stumble upon this 2009 DTM recap video, as I’ve been really hooked on DTM cars lately.

For those of you not really familiar with DTM, heres some history behind it. The DTM Series (or Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, which translated, means German Touring Car Masters) started out in 1984 and was only exclusive to Germany. In the early years, race fans found DTM racing very exciting, due to the fender-to-fender action and violent crashes. Unfortunately, the original DTM series came to an abrupt halt after the 1996 season… so Thank God the series was revived in 2000.

In my opinion as a Euro-car nut, I don’t think any race series even compares to DTM, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. This video is from last year, but it’s still incredibly exciting to watch. Watching the Mercedes AMG C-class and the Audi A4 duke it out… I just don’t think it gets much better than this.

    Unfortunately the Series never revived… The “new” DTM is for pussies… I miss the fender-to-fender action… If i want to se cars going to the pit or give up in case of safety, cause a flap or a small piece of carbon fiber fell apart i can look at the Formula 1!

    I was there a spectator on the last race of the real DTM in 1996 and i was there for one of the first races of the new DTM and i didnt like, now its like Formula 1 but with a body around the open wheeler… Spectators are allowed to walk thru the paddock okay but you dont see anything…


  2. I agree with you that no other racing series can compare with DTM. I watched it constantly (if I can afford the extra cable channels). In my opinion, drifting is cool but DTM action is exciting!

  3. The video was very well compiled and I enjoyed watching it! Great use of 10 minutes and really shows how intense DTM really is
    Nice find!
