The return to two races per weekend (one on Saturday and Sunday) was well received by fans. Overall, 341,000 spectators were at the track to watch the first five race weekends of the year, while 123,000 spectators came through the gates over the weekend to watch the two victories of the Mercedes-AMG DTM team in Nuremberg.

Live broadcasts on ARD’s Sportschau also proved very popular during the first half of the season with some 10.91 million viewers tuning in to watch qualifying and the race live on ARD TV over the first five race weekends – 18.9% up on the previous year.
