The latest Raceroom update has made the DTM 2020 cars publicly available.
Up until now, the Audi RS5 and BMW M4 DTM challengers had been locked away and only available for those entering the Esports Series.
For sale in the Raceroom store at €12, the 600+bhp cars mark Raceroom’s newest version of the DTM series since 2016. With time comes change – The DRS system is joined by a new Push to Pass system which adds a new dynamic to the racing.
It’s not all about the new DTM additions with some tweaks to some circuits and other fixes. Here’s the full changelog:
DTM 2020 uses a specific Push to Pass regulation: One activation per lap for a maximum of 24 race laps. Push to Pass is not available in the first lap. Push to Pass is not available to the race leader. (A race leader is determined at the crossing of each track sector and not only at the start/finish line) Push to Pass is available regardless of the gap to the car in front of you.
DTM 2020 uses a specific DRS regulation: 3 activations per lap for a maximum number of activations set to half the expected amount of race laps (rounded up). (i.e.: a 18 laps race will give you a maximum of 9 activations, and since you can activate it 3 times per lap, you can run out of DRS within only 3 laps). DRS is not available in the first lap. DRS is not available to the race leader. (A race leader is determined at the crossing of each track sector and not only at the start/finish line) DRS is available regardless of the gap to the car in front of you.
