Private broadcasting company ServusTV is set to provide full coverage of the DTM Trophy races, part of the DTM support package, in 2022, as well as in-depth summaries of DTM races and access to DTM Classic races on its streaming service.

Expanding on the deal it signed last summer, selected races of the support series will be broadcast live on linear television by ServusTV in Germany and Austria, while all 14 races will be shown live on ServusTV On, the video and steaming platform by ServusTV.

Moreover, ServusTV is showing summaries of the DTM races in Germany and Austria, as well as all the races with original sound feed on ServusTV On. Plus, for the first time, the DTM Classic races will also be available through the service.

Next to the summaries on ServusTV, all the races of the 2022 DTM series (which all start at 13:30 local time) will be shown live, in full, and exclusively on ProSieben in the German-speaking region, with qualifying sessions on ran.de.

“The expansion of the partnership and cooperation with ServusTV is an important milestone and a great addition to our main partner in the German-speaking region ProSieben,” said Benedikt Böhme, managing director of the DTM organisation ITR.

“ServusTV is offering comprehensive coverage of the DTM, with DTM Trophy in particular and DTM Classic as well. With ServusTV and ProSieben, both partners together are delivering 100% spectacular racing action at home for free, both on linear television and on the various channels of the digital world.”

Martin Tomczyk, DTM Trophy series’ manager, added: “It is great that, in ServusTV, we have a TV partner with huge sporting authority and an excellent reach for DTM Trophy. For teams and drivers of our talent pool, comprehensive TV presence and visual communication are elementary in their further development.”

“DTM has a long tradition, especially in the German-speaking region, but also internationally. Therefore, I am even more delighted that we can not only present all the races of the top league live on ServusTV On, but can also give the fans in Germany the opportunity to watch the highlights of the races on TV as well as the DTM Trophy races,” concluded David Morgenbesser, head of sporting rights and distribution.

“Herewith, ServusTV is making another decisive step to becoming the new ‘home of motorsports’ in Germany with the largest motorsport portfolio on free-to-air TV.” 

All the DTM Trophy races start directly after DTM at 15:15 local time. The new seasons of DTM Trophy and DTM Classic commence at Dekra Lausitzring, 20th-22nd May.

The DTM season starts three weeks prior at Portimão in Portugal from 29th April to 1st May.
