The magic of racing Ė DTM

Itís a pity we donít get the DTM races broadcasted on any of the cable sports channels (someone correct me if Iím wrong on this. Youíre always left out when youíre signed up onto the basic group).

Maybe just once in a while, on some highlight segment, during a half-hour motorsports program most of us donít even care in remembering, weíd catch the last 5 minutes before it cuts to the credits.

A couple of days ago a friend linked me a video that reminded me of exactly how exciting motorsports was to watch back in the early 90s. Where racing wasnít about the controversial rules, the green movement, the deepest bank accounts, driverís girlfriends or the multi-million dollar yachtís anchored at the side of the track.

The video was a great revelation to the forgotten golden era.of the gorgeous Mercedes-Benz 190E Evo 1ís and the E30ís parading around challenging tracks, trading fastest laps and positions multiple times within each race

Itís just unfortunate we donít get to see enough of the DTM races (and other classes like WTCC and even Formula 3), which I dare say can be much more exciting than the commercialized Formula 1 circus.

Still not convinced?

You forgotten that we're missing JGTC too... now known as SuperGT. Is awesome race, you'll see them overspeeding the corner to overtake and sometimes drifting.
