The DTM has officially announced its nine-round calendar for 2016, headlined by a return for the Hungaroring venue.
The Hungaroring was introduced as a DTM track in 2014, with the sole race that year won by eventual champion Marco Wittmann, before the circuit was dropped from the 2015 calendar.
But the track will now be making its return in 2016, stepping in in place of Motorsport Arena Oschersleben and taking the penultimate slot on the schedule.
The loss of Oschersleben could be seen as a blow for BMW, whose cars dominated the 2015 event, locking out the podium in both races.
The only other major change in the calendar concerns Spielberg, the place which saw the season-defining "push him out" controversy.
The Austrian track is moved from its August slot to the end of May and will follow three weeks after the Hockenheim opener.
2016 DTM calendar:
|May 6-8||Hockenheim I|
|October 14-16||Hockenheim II|
