The DTM and DEKRA are connected by a partnership that has now endured for 30 years.
In 2019, there will be even more of a focus on driving ability in the DTM than before.
The greatest possible degree of safety, controlled by DEKRA, is important for all participants. Especially since, with new engine regulations, the DTM will be gaining speed again considerably in 2019.
Safety begins with a reliable partner. The best proof of DEKRA’s decades-long commitment to motorsport is its engagement in the DTM.
DEKRA Motorsport Coordinator, Wolfgang Dammert, and his team of six colleagues are responsible for safety in the DTM.
In 2012, the DTM introduced new technical regulations with a completely revised safety concept.
The first free practise begins on Friday afternoon, after the DEKRA technical inspectors have already carried out the tire lottery and the basic inspection of the vehicles as well as the inspection of the driver equipment in the morning.
Just in case. During the qualifying sessions and the timed sessions, all eyes are on the track – including those of the race control and the race marshals.
Limiting costs is a central element of the DTM philosophy. In addition to the consistent use of so-called standard components this also involves limiting the engine allocations and restricting the permitted number of brake disks and tires – checked by the DEKRA experts.
