The magic three letters “DTM” once stood for “Deutsche Tourenwagen-Meisterschaft” (German Touring Car Championship). Today, they are the trademark of the most popular international touring car racing series. Its history began in the 1984 season with cars that were close to the production versions and culminated in a worldwide series for high-tech touring cars in 1996. After a three-season break the DTM, in 2000, celebrated its successful comeback with a trendsetting concept – fascinating technology at reasonable costs. Today, the series is regarded as the “pinnacle” of touring car racing and one of Europe’s leading sports events.
Die DTM-Saison 1992
1992 was the year of Mercedes. The AMG-Mercedes-Benz 190E 2.5-16 Evo 2 won sixteen times. Klaus Ludwig collected the first DTM title for the Stuttgart concern and was, as a result, the first driver to wrap up two DTM titles. In 1992, Ellen Lohr was the first, and to this date, the only woman to win a race.
