08/06/2021

Away game for the DTM: Circuit Zolder, 6-8. AugustIn the history books of the DTM, the Team Rosberg is the winner of the last four races in Zolder / Belgium. In other words, a track that suits the traditional team very well. A particular incentive also for the two drivers Nico Müller and Dev Gore on the fast and challenging track, where driving mistakes can quickly lead to a ride into the gravel bed, to bring their skills to the asphalt and to continue the successful history of victories.

The race track in Zolder, Belgium will be called the “Home of DTM” - and not without reason. Because it was here, on Circuit Zolder, that the very first DTM race took place in 1984. Still known as the Deutsche Produktionswagen-Meisterschaft (German Production Car Championship), the series comprised a total of 15 races in Germany and Belgium. At the end of the season, Volker Strycek was crowned in a 285 hp BMW 635 CSi as the overall winner without having clinched a single win of the season.
