The racing series

The motorsport scene after the legendary time of the German racing championship (DRM) of the late 70s was replaced by the no less spectacular race series of the 80s and the 90s. The German Touring Car Championship was at that time the “non plus ultra” of the motorsports, alongside the long distance races and brand cups. The races of the “first” DTM, with the BMW M3, the Mercedes 190 Evo, the Alfa 155 and the Ford Sierras as well as the appearance of the Porsche Armada in the long distance races were really worth seeing.

History and regulations

In 2005 the racing series of the “Young-Timer” was founded in Austria. This was the right decision, because the Young Timers “boomed”.

Today well over 70 racing touring cars and GT’s from 1986 to 2004 are fighting for victory.

Driving is done according to the regulations of the former groups N and A. Improved touring cars are entered in the “STW” classification.

Further Details

The variety of racing cars, the spectacular driving style as well as the hot position battles make the Young Timers very popular with the audience. Due to the classification in classes, every vehicle can compete for the overall victory.

Hot motorsport, hard but fair fights on the track and friendship in the paddock are also a key success factor for the Young Timers.
