Monza to host DTM test on March
The official DTM test ahead of the start of the 2020 season will take place at Monza from March 16-18.
The traditional three-day session will allow teams and drivers to familiarise themselves with the legendary high-speed Italian circuit ahead of its first-ever DTM race, which takes place June 26-28.
While manufacturers are able to test during the winter, the official ITR test is traditionally the only opportunity for the entire DTM field to run together ahead of the season opener, which takes place at Zolder, Belgium, on April 24-26.
The Autodromo Nazionale di Monza, situated north of Milan, is one of the oldest racetracks in Europe. It has held every round of Formula 1’s Italian Grand Prix since 1950 – with one sole exception, in 1980. As in F1, DTM’s arrival at the track is expecting to bring spectacular slipstreaming action as cars hit the highest speeds of the season around the full 5.793km grand prix circuit.
