The iconic Norisring to host 2021 DTM season finale in October
The iconic German street circuit, Norisring round, will be held a week after the Hockenheim races that are scheduled on 2-3 October, after being postponed due to the Covid pandemic.
Mayor of Nuremberg Marcus Konig stated: “The Norisring race remains in place in Nuremberg. That is good news and shows that we remain attractive for sporting events. To me, it is important that the organisers are now making a start with a DTM Electric in order to work towards a sustainable mobile future in racing as well. At the same time, it is very important to me that ITR and MCN actually achieve the goal of carbon neutrality in 2025. We as a city are contributing wherever we can.”
Benedikt Böhme, managing director of the DTM organisation ITR said: “I am really delighted that we will be able to stage the Norisring round for our fans this season as well. We are certain that we will get to see a great season finale at Norisring with its unique atmosphere.”
Norisring will be open to live audience, while the ticket sales will begin this month. The confirmation of the Norisring event ensures the DTM will be able to meet its target of holding eight rounds in 2021, its first under GT3 regulations.
