DTM grid set to drop

DTM's grid could drop from 24 cars to 18 in 2017.

The move comes after Audi, BMW, and Mercedes reportedly each agreed to shrink their representation from eight cars to six, although an official confirmation is yet to be made.

There is still a chance that each manufacturer could run eight, or even seven cars next year, and there could also be a scenario where the manufacturers don't run an equal number of cars for the first time since 2014.

Series organisers ITR are said to have met with each manufacturer at last weekend's Hockenheim season finale in a bid to convince them of the six car per manufacturer plan.

  • How about 4 cars per manufacturer?
    That would make a fantastically varied 24 car grid...

    Get on with the DTM / SGT equalisation of regs. Make sure Toyota, Honda and Nissan come over to improve the show and to decrease current day 3-party politics.
