I'd somewhat agree, modern DTM is boring compared to the good old days and it is to do with the fact that the cars are just too good. However bring back homogalation and it would mean that the cars would need to be tamer, massive wings\aero out, silhoutte racers out, make them closer to a road cars. Yes the cars would be slower overall but massively more entertaining to watch and it would mean that we might get some proper race bred specials back on the road again. Porsche are the only manufacturer who seem to do this at the moment with their GT3\RS range and look how good those cars are!
There good bits about DTM. The noise, drivers and car manufacturers involved. I think the cars have become the opposite of what touring cars should be. Current DTM cars aren’t much sturdier than open wheel cars when contact is made, and rubbing bumpers a little is what makes things like BTCC and V8 Supercars exciting.
DTM cars have extremely short braking distances; too, meaning passing is limited. Touring cars shouldn’t have big downforce levels, sticky-out aero bits like single seaters and carbon brakes. The emphasis should be on the racing, not trying to ape open wheel cars.
BTCC is often sneered that, but apart from the four cylinder engines, I cannot see why. The racing is far more entertaining.
DTM should look at the Racecar Euro Series, sanctioned by NASCAR. The cars are not particularly sophisticated and have low cornering speeds, but they produce superb racing. The braking distances are much longer, too, meaning out-braking someone isn’t a near impossibility like it is in DTM.
Current DTM is extremely boring and overrated.
