Can't wait for this season to get underway and see who else will be confirmed at Audi, BMW and Mercedes.
It used to be on Motorstv. At one point but we can't afford to have ESPN aswell as having Sky. TBH i prefer watching the DTM on the computer, as i normally forgot when it was on the tele.
What great news that BMW are back, that should help to reinvigorate what had become a stale series, for me anyway.

Such a shame that it's not available on any of the channels I receive though, I'm not really a fan of watching online.
I'm now watching re-broadcasts of the DTM on SPEED for the 2011 season, which they now show, after the completion of the F1 season. The DTM have great looking and sounding cars, but the drivers don't lean on each other as much as is done in the BTTC, which has made me a big fan of Jason Plato. BMW entering in the fray of the DTM, with it's outstanding driver lineup, should make this a series to watch and not miss.
I watched DTM on speed once, ended up losing a lot of weight and chewing the inside of my cheek to shreds. Or have I misunderstood?
Ralf Schumacher's still racing???! Well worth watching! :)

With BMW back I might give it a watch, but I can never find coverage of it anymore, I found the highlights occasionally on Sky Sports once or twice.
Well we've had a British interest in DTM over many seasons so I'm not sure this is any reason for them to buy it from ESPN. I hope they do though, again more for my £10.00
**** the BBC!
I think the deal for SKY to show the highlights may be over, as was really a marketting tool to get people to pay the extra £9 a month for the ESPN channels over and above the normal sports channels. In a strangely unconnected turn of events, I ordered ESPN from SKY last weekend after finding out they were not going to release X-Games footage even for a highlights show to any other channel this year, so now I get two sports to watch and justify the cost :D
