Formula 3 Euro Series

The 2004 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the fifth Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season since the series' resumption in 2000. There were 10 championship race weekend with one round each, plus a non-championship round at the streets of Shanghai. Originally each track hosted one race each with the exception of Hockenheimring (two races, premier and finale), but when Avignon lost their race EuroSpeedway also hosted two events. Each track hosted one race, with the exception of Hockenheim, which hosted two. As in 2003 each weekend compromised one race of circa one hour and with two compulsory pit stops for each contender.

Changes for 2004[edit]

  • The coupe style cars were replaced by four-door sedans. Smaller independent teams were allowed to run the year-old coupes for one more season.
  • Audi entered as an official works team.
  • A non-championship one-off race was held at the streets of Shanghai, China.
  • A1-Ring in Austria was removed from the schedule. The track was to undergo major repairs, but those were not completed (see article on A1-Ring for full story).
  • DTM did not return to Donington Park in the United Kingdom for 2004. In 2006 a DTM race in Britain did return to the calendar, but with it being held at Brands Hatch.
  • Shell became official control fuel supplier from 2004 season until mid-2005.
