Also in its 6th season, the cult series TWC continues to enjoy unbroken popularity. After the announcement of the factories’ withdrawal from the current DTM and the ITR’s decision to organise a championship based on GT3, the authentic racing cars of the 80s and 90s are even more in favour with their fans and are celebrated frenetically everywhere.
Especially after this special year, participants, organisers and fans alike are looking forward to the historic season opener at the Hockenheimring as part of the Bosch Hockenheim Historic 2021. The event has been an integral part of the Touring Car Classics calendar for years and is very popular with its participants. “The cars of the so-called Golden Era simply belong here,” says Michael Thier, the new TWC manager, and adds: “After the long winter break, the “Who’s Who” in Baden will also meet far beyond the state borders to ring in the season.”
The focus is on the DTM touring cars from the 1980s and the two-litre super touring cars from the 1990s, supplemented by the DTC cars. They form the core of the series, which in 2021 will for the first time only focus on these cars, as the races are even more exciting for spectators and participants due to the similar power density in the field.
The Pro-Am race format over a length of 40 minutes, whereby a driver change between ex-professional and car owner is made possible, has its special appeal because it means that a particularly large number of ex-DTM drivers will be competing. So far, 29 former DTM drivers have already competed. Commentated by voice-over legend Rainer Braun, we will again witness one of the most exciting eras of motorsport 30 years later. “The Golden Era”. The races will be broadcast live. Autograph sessions and “Meet & Greet” with the old stars are possible at any time.
