Class One Joint Super GT/ DTM Events Plan Crystalises

Autosport Japan unpicks proposal

Autosport Japan is reporting that the planned joint Super GT/ DTM race in Japan could well be held at Fuji Speedway on November 23-24.

The plan involves 14 DTM cars, to be matched against all 15 GT500 machines in a race format that would mirror DTM’s 2-race sprint format and with all cars running with a spec tyre.

In addition, there are plans for a car apiece from each Super GT Manufacturer to attend the DTM finale at Hockenheim in lieu of a hoped-for joint race in Europe that appears to have fallen victim to calendar congestion.

The 2019 plans follow on from joint demonstrations of the Series’ cars at Motegi and Hockenheim in 2017 (above and top) as both Series adopt common base technical regulations.
