In the struggle for a future of the DTM no progress can be seen beyond this year. After Audi's announced exit, BMW, as the last remaining manufacturer, cannot yet make a decision. "We will not compete against ourselves and there is no other manufacturer in sight," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt at the season opener in Spa.

For BMW and potential interested parties, the most important question remains unanswered: "What will the DTM be in 2021? It must be clear what the racing series looks like so that people can make a decision." Since the Audi exit was announced in April, the DTM has come no closer to solving the problem.

The International Olympic Committee absolutely wants to avoid summer games without spectators in Tokyo in 2021. "Olympic Games behind closed doors is something we don't want," said IOC President Thomas Bach after an executive meeting in Lausanne.

The DTM is still working on a name change for the series that is now set to come into effect for 2021 , according to series boss Gerhard Berger. The DTM 's bid to become more international has led to comparisons with the short-lived International Touring Car Championship of the 1990s (pictured below).

The German DTM series is on the verge of collapse after Audi announced its plans to exit the championship at the conclusion of the 2020 season. “Audi has shaped the DTM and the DTM has shaped Audi. This demonstrates what power lies in motorsport—technologically and emotionally,” said

"We had a lot of discussions," said Marquardt, "but it is difficult. It is important to combine different points of view and different perspectives."

Marquardt is critical of the much-discussed possibility of switching to the existing GT3 regulations to save the DTM. "At the end of the day, GT3 is customer sport that we already do and that we want to protect," said the 53-year-old.

Mercedes had already left the DTM at the end of 2018 in order to advance its plant involvement in the Formula E electrical series. Audi follows the same path after the season. BMW is also represented there.
