The rule-set for the 2018 DTM season puts the driver into the spotlight again. DEKRA once again taking care of everybody's safety in order for drivers and fans to be able to enjoy DTM at its best.
The highest possible safety standards monitored by DEKRA are absolutely key for everybody involved in the 2018 DTM season as the cars once again get even faster.
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.
Limiting costs is a central element of the DTM’s philosophy today. In addition to the consistent use of standard components this includes limiting the engine contingent and restricting the number of brake discs and tyres allowed – checked by DEKRA experts.
In 2012, the DTM introduced new technical regulations with a completely revised safety concept.
The first free practice begins on Friday afternoon, after the technical scrutineers from DEKRA have drawn the tyres and performed the basic inspection before.
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.
