DTM reveals Asian finale

The DTM will return to Asia, for a series finale in China, in 2010
DTM bosses have revealed the final calendar for the 2010 season, which will feature a finale on Asian soil in October.

The event in Shanghai will take place on a specially constructed street circuit and will mark the DTM's return to the city – after an invitational event was held in China back in 2004.

The announcement of the Chinese race completes a ten race calendar for the 2010 season, which also features an event at Valencia.

The circuit takes the place of Catalunya on the schedule and will host the second round of the season. Zandvoort and Brands Hatch host the only other races not on German soil.

2010 DTM calendar:

25 April Hockenheim
23 May Valencia
6 June Lausitz
4 July Norisring
8 August Nurburgring
22 August Zandvoort
5 September Brands Hatch
19 September Oschersleben
17 October Hockenheim
31 October Shanghai subject to final contract negotiations

It's fine to have a one-off truly overseas round if Merc and Audi presumably want to be there for marketing reasons, but to be a championship finale is a bit of a kick in the face to the core fans. Plus, I'm really uncomfortable with all these series thinking it's fine to race in a country whose government has NO respect for basic human rights.
