This will be the fourth time the DTM drivers and teams go outside Germany this year, after Moscow, Spielberg and Brands Hatch. Since the last races had some pretty interesting results, for now, only August Farfus still has a theoretical chance to catch up to Mike Rockenfeller for the Driver's Title.

However, that doesn't mean that the race has no stakes for the other 3 teams. All of them will try to get the best results to help BMW secure the title in the Manufacturer's Championship, where it's leading at the moment with 276 points, Audi being really close behind with 267.

The track on which they will be racing is a true roller coaster, having changes in elevation, crests and bumps and a length of 4.307 kilometers. Furthermore, since the track is really close to the shore, sand often ends up on the asphalt, making things even more dangerous.
