The DTM should be a salutary lesson to creators of tin-top race series the world over, be it touring cars or sports cars, because it is proof that you can have technologically advanced cars and properly close racing.

But while we'll have to wait to see the BMW in race action, even with just two badges on the various cars, the DTM is a pretty healthy spectacle.
