There's something going on all year round in Hockenheim. Whether it's nail-biting racing action, music events or fairs and festivals, there's always reason to celebrate. If the German Touring Car Masters doesn't satisfy your need for speed, then you should head to the "Nitrolympics", a turbo-charged drag racing experience. The traditional "Hockenheim May" street festival is also a popular event with visitors.
German Touring Car Masters (DTM)
The DTM is one of the world's most popular touring car series, and the season opening (April) and the finals (October) are staged at Hockenheim. Alongside American NASCAR racing and the Australian V8 Supercar Series, these championships attract hundreds of thousands of spectators to Hockenheimring's motordrome every year.
Every August Hockenheimring stages the "Nitrolympics", which feature a number of different drag racing events. Its diverse programme of events includes a variety of stunt car shows and dragster demonstrations.
Hockenheim May
Held every year on the third weekend in May, this street festival offers live music on a variety of stages, stalls and entertainment galore.
