Formula 3 Euro Series

The 2006 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the seventh Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season since the series' resumption in 2000. The number of race weekends were taken down from the eleven in 2005 to ten for the 2006 season. Each track hosted one race, with the exception of Hockenheim, which hosted two. As in 2005 each event consisted of one race of circa one hour and with two compulsory pit stops for each car.

Changes for 2006[edit]

  • Opel exit from the series, leaving Audi and Mercedes as remaining manufacturers. Audi and Mercedes respectively increased their number of entries from eight to ten cars each to fill up the four empty spots left by Opel.
  • The aging 2004 models became cheaper, allowing privateer teams to buy them.
  • The rounds in Belgium at Spa-Francorchamps and Turkey at Istanbul Park were dropped in favour of Le Mans in France and Barcelona in Spain.
  • The rounds in Czech Republic at Brno were removed from schedule.
