RaceRoom Racing Experience | DTM 2020 Confirmed

In something of a surprise announcement, Sector3 Studios have confirmed the DTM will be returning to RaceRoom Racing Experience, with the 2020 grid set to join the simulation.

Having worked closely with DTM organisers ITR in previous years, Sector3 Studios and the German race series parted company after the 2016 car pack joined the sim - seemingly bringing an end to a popular content stream that includes 2013, 14, 15 alongside a select number of historic machines from the history of the category.

With esports very much back in vogue following the Covid-19 enforced hiatus of real racing, RaceRoom has very much been the simulation of choice for various DTM themed esport racing events - and it looks like these activities in recent weeks have rekindled the relationship between both companies - leading to a very, very welcome return of the category in RaceRoom Racing Experience.


DTM 2020 style is a marked departure from the last time the series was present within RaceRoom Racing Experience, having since adopted the 'Class 1' regulations - complete with a 650hp two litre turbocharged inline-four engine. As 2020 marks the final season of Audi participation, the new car pack will include both the latest specification RS5 Turbo alongside the BMW M4 Turbo. Sadly the collaboration between DTM and RaceRoom came just one year too late to include the epic looking (and sounding) Aston Martin Vantage DTM... but we can always hope it gets added in as bonus content at some future point...

RaceRoom Racing Experience is available now, exclusive to PC.

New content is nice I suppose, but adding a series which is all but dead? Meh, can't say that I'm particularly excited to be honest. :unsure:
Developers love to do weird choices.
Modern DTM has very little appeal in simracing. I imagine when you have bills to pay and you put your money at risk there are better options out there.
And then as you said, series is dead.

Bit of a shame that they wont get the aston martin. I have to wonder why they are so dedicated to DTM especially modern DTM
Might have something to do with S3 partnering with various brands and manufacturers instead of just licensing the use of their cars for their sim. There might be a deal behind the scenes which is mutually beneficial to both parties.

the cars are amazing, so i dont really see a point to be against adding them. Especially since Raceroom is very DTM focused.
And where else do you get these cars?
And who knows at this rate which championships will not be dead by next year.

I didn't say I was against it, I said I wasn't excited by it. Because I'm not.

Especially since Raceroom is very DTM focused.
How so, because it has copy/paste seasons of the same cars with slightly tweaked liveries? :O_o: I wouldn't say R3E has been "DTM focused" since the days of DTM Experience, and those are long gone. We're onto Porsche Experience now. ;)

I don’t think your right. In AC the paid mod from URD is quiet popular in league racing. The cars are great fun to race and a requested frequently to be added to several game.

But yeah it is a risk for race room to add them at this moment, now DTM as we currently know it is most likely dead. But I still think the cars itself will be popular within sims racing.

the DTM cars are incredibly fun to drive and still somewhat popular in simracing despite bad availability throughout the sims
