Race in Moscow postponed to 2006, Brno new on the DTM calendar

The DTM round scheduled to be held in Moscow on 26th June, 2005, has been postponed to 2006. In his postponement request to the ITR e. V., Viktor Kiryanov, President of the Russian Motorsport Association mentioned the excessive organisation measures as main reason.

Particularly the completion of the circuit modifications necessary to guarantee the safety of drivers and spectators according to the FIA standards (Féderation Internationale de l'Automobile) was close to impossible.

"Quite obviously, we comply Moscow's request," said ITR Chairman Hans Werner Aufrecht. "The drivers' and spectators' safety is priority No 1, therefore, we won't make any compromises. Now, the persons in charge have time enough for the appropriate preparations. We look forward to contest a race in Moscow, in 2006."

In spite of the postponement, the 2005 DTM calendar will consist of eleven rounds, with Brno replacing Moscow as 2005 DTM venue. On 5th June, the Czech circuit will be the venue of DTM round No 4.

The race in Oschersleben has been postponed by three weeks and will now take place on 26th June, the previous date of the Moscow round, thus being the fifth race on the calendar. All tickets already purchased for the Oschersleben round stay valid.

Following the DTM launch, on 5th April, the 2005 DTM season will kick off on 17th April, at the Hockenheimring. The race calendar consists of eleven races, held in five countries, with the Hockenheimring also being the venue of the season finale, on 23rd October.
