Anderstorp and Monza have been added to next year’s expanded DTM schedule, while a “very exciting” TBA date is still listed for May.

Scandinavian Raceway Anderstorp will host the series on June 12-14 in its first visit to Sweden, while Monza, which was previously announced, will host DTM two weeks later.

Six editions fo the Swedish Grand Prix took place at Anderstorp during the 1970s, while legendary Formula 1 venue Monza becomes the fourth Italian DTM circuit, following Misano, Adria and Mugello.

Ten weekends are planned, kicking off at Zolder on April 24-26 and finishing at Hockenheimring on Oct. 2-4.

The inclusion of the Lausitzring, Norisring, Nürburgring and Hockenheimring means that the series will have four events in its home country of Germany while expanding around Europe.

Additional returning events at Brands Hatch and Assen mean that DTM will visit at least six countries: Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Italy, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

The location for the TBA May 29-31 date will be announced ahead of this year’s finale at Hockenheimring next month

“The 2020 DTM calendar reflects our ambition to achieve both growth and stability,” said ITR CEO Achim Kostron.

“We’ll continue to race at Germany’s most popular motorsport venues while also increasing the series’ presence across Europe.

“We want to continue growing awareness of DTM in key European markets – so racing at legendary British and Italian racetracks such as Brands Hatch and Monza really allows us to reach those national audiences.

“Equally, our first visit to Sweden next spring will unlock another new and important motorsport market, one that continues to grow.

“While the scope of the calendar keeps growing, we’ve remained loyal to our fans in Germany, retaining four races at key German venues.

“In addition, the location of both Zolder and Assen means they’re both within easy geographical reach for many German fans.

“We feel like we’ve got a perfect blend of venues and dates, and we’re already getting excited about the new season.”

Kostron described the identity of the TBA venue as “one more surprise in store”, claiming that “it’s very exciting”.
