Formula 3 Euro Series

The 2005 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season was the sixth Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season since the series' resumption in 2000. The number of race weekends were increased from 10 events in 2004 to eleven in 2005 (although 2004 had eleven events including the non-championship race at Shanghai). Originally each track hosted one race each with the exception of Hockenheimring (two races, premier and finale), but when Avignon lost their race, EuroSpeedway also hosted two events.

Changes for 2005

  • The cars built to 00-03 specs were banned from competition. Instead the whole field would be made up of cars built to the new 04 specs.
  • Italy and Portugal lost their respective events. They were replaced by Belgium (Spa-Francorchamps) and Turkey (Istanbul Park).
  • Opel went down from six to four cars, while Audi and Mercedes fielded eight each instead of the six they had run in 2004.
  • Opel announced that they would exit from the series after the season.
