Danish Touringcar Championship to open new track
The series will be the first to race at an extended Sturup Raceway

The drivers in the Danish Touringcar Championship will face a new challenge this season. For the third time in the series' history it will have the honour of topping the bill of the inaugural race programme on a new circuit layout in Scandinavia.

This will happened at the end of June, when the Danish Touringcar Championship will be racing on the new version of Sturup Raceway, which has Danish owners, even though the circuit is based in southern Sweden close to the town of Malmo. The original circuit opened in 1989, but has since been revised on a couple of occasions. Work on the most recent extension will start this spring, and it will see the circuit being extended from 1480 metres to more than 2 km, while the circuit will also get more straights and faster corners.

The Copenhagen Raceway event will take place at Sturup Raceway on June 26th, and it will count as the fourth round of this year's Danish Touringcar Championship, which will be fought out over nine rounds, with the other races taking place at FDM Jyllands-Ringen, Padborg Park and Ring Djursland. Apart from the new race at Sturup Raceway the other change to the calendar is that there will once again be a douple header meeting at Denmark's largest motor race, Grand Prix Danmark, at the last weekend of August.
