Team changes[edit]

  • After competing with six cars in 2012, BMW will increase its involvement in the series by expanding to eight cars.[1] Team MTEK will run the new team for the marque.[3]
  • Mercedes-Benz initially submitted eight entries to the grid, but later scaled back their commitment to six cars after parting company with Persson Motorsport.[5]

Driver changes[edit]

Race calendar and results[edit]

A provisional eleven-round calendar was announced on 23 October 2012,[13] and the final schedule was published on 21 November 2012.[14] A revised calendar was released by series organisers on 19 December 2012, with the Norisring round moved back by a week to avoid a clash with the German Grand Prix. To accommodate the change of date, the Zandvoort meeting was moved from July to September, and would become the penultimate event of the season, with the Oschersleben and second Hockenheim meetings also being held later than originally scheduled.[15]

Notes
  1. ^ Mattias Ekström was disqualified from the race after infringing parc ferme regulations. Following an appeal by Abt Sportsline to the Deutscher Motor Sport Bund, the disqualification was confirmed; however, drivers were not promoted in the race results, and as such, no driver was officially recognised as having finished in first place.[16]

Calendar changes[edit]

  • The 2013 season will see the DTM series travel to Russia for the first time, with the inclusion of a round at the Moscow Raceway scheduled for August.
  • The non-championship exhibition rounds held at the Munich Olympic Stadium in 2011 and 2012 will be discontinued in 2013.
  • The race at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Spain – which had been included on the DTM calendar in 2011 and 2012 – was discontinued.
