Zolder's DTM slot approved despite WEC clash

Belgian motorsport association RACB had raised concerns over the prospect of two high-profile championships competing in Belgium on the same weekend, but it has now approved the DTM season-opener's April 24-26 date.

It is understood that the RACB has now informed the FIA and it means the 2020 DTM calendar's approval should now be a formality.

The move will be welcome for the DTM, as a rearranged date would likely have led to Formula 1 and Formula E clashes, while few of its venues could have taken over Zolder's slot.

2020 DTM calendar:

Date Venue
April 24-26 Belgium Zolder
May 15-17 Germany Lausitzring
May 29-31 Russian Federation Igora Drive
June 12-14 Sweden Anderstorp
June 26-28 Italy Monza
July 10-12 Germany Norisring
August 22-23 United Kingdom Brands Hatch
September 4-6 Netherlands Assen
September 11-13 Germany Nurburgring
October 2-4 Germany Hockenheim

Does 2000 hold the answers to the DTM's current crisis?

It's 20 years since the DTM roared back into life at a packed Hockenheim with a back-to-basics approach as the antidote to its high-tech past. Now it's on its knees again, so is it time to recall the lessons learned in 2000?
