The 2003 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the fourth Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season since the series' resumption in 2000. Unlike 2002 there were ten race weekends with only one race at each event.

Changes for 2003[edit]

  • The races were increased in length to a total of one hour per race, as compared to the 40 minutes each race had lasted in 2002.
  • The race at Zolder, Belgium, was replaced by Adria in Italy.
  • The DTM did not return to Sachsenring. Instead, Nürburgring hosted two events.
  • The qualifying for Round 7 at Nürburgring was held at nighttime.
