DTM will round out the 2016 championship season this weekend at Hockenheim.
The series is an attractive category for past and future Formula One drivers with Paul Di Resta and Timo Glock currently competing in the championship.
Marco Wittmann, Edoaro Mortara and Jamie Green are the three drivers who all have a chance of taking the title, with Wittmann being the favourite.
Audi have also shuffled 2013 champion Mike Rockenfeller within its DTM line-up in a bid to help its title chances in this weekend's Hockenheim finale. Rockenfeller will move from Audi's Phoenix outfit to Abt, where he will partner drivers' championship contender Mortara.
Supporting the series this weekend is the final round of the FIA European Formula Three championship. Lance Stroll was already crowned champion last time out at Imola.
