**** YEAH!

I am so excited, like a kid on Christmas! The German DTM touring-car series has announced plans to stage races in the United States in 2013, with its high-performance four-door sedans competing on the same program with NASCAR and Grand American Road Racing events.

NASCAR’s premier Sprint Cup Series presently competes on only two road-course venues, Infineon Raceway in California and Watkins Glen International in New York. The Grand-Am series is closely affiliated with Daytona Beach, Fla.-based NASCAR. The series has one race at each track each year.

American-style stock car racing is popular in other parts of the world, particularly in Mexico and England, but the touring cars are a bigger draw, with Britain and Germany hosting national championship series. The FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile) sanctions European and world championships. And Australia’s V8 Supercars series produced present NASCAR driver Marcos Ambrose.

More than a year out, there are many unanswered questions about the details of this venture, but the main question is how American fans will respond to the series. Let’s all hope it’s a great response.

For the few races they are proposing, I'm just wondering if the teams will build copies of the "regular" DTM cars and leave them here?

Which would be more cost effective? Transport the entire lot ala F1 or have a dedicated "US" DTM car for our races and transport just personnel and lighter/smaller equipment?
