Brands Hatch, along with Zandvoort, have lost their places on next year's DTM calendar as the series broadens its international schedule.

Hungary and China will the replace the British and Dutch circuits while each of the six-German tracks all retain their places on the calendar.

The Hungaroring, last used for DTM purposes in 1988, has been selected to host the Hungarian round while China's venue has still yet to be confirmed but Shanghai and Guandong have both been shortlisted for the race.

China has hosted two DTM rounds in recent history with the invitational event held in 2004 before controversially hosting the 2010 season finale - races which were both won by Britain's Gary Paffett.

DTM boss Hans Werner-Aufrecht said that despite Brands Hatch and Zandvoort proving worthy in holding great races, the decision to move to Hungary and China has been based on the two-countries possessing stronger marketing opportunities for the series.

"We witnessed great races at these circuits and have to say thank you for the good cooperation," said Aufrecht.

"In 2014, however, we want turn towards other interesting markets.

"We are looking forward to returning to Hungary, 26 years after our first race at the Hungaroring.

"The Formula one circuit meets the highest standards and Eastern Europe also has got a lot of DTM enthusiasm. In addition, our three manufacturers, Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz, have got plants not far from the circuit."

Werner Aufrecht also stated that none of the German circuits came under any threat as the series wanted to stay true with its traditional roots.

"DTM most definitely has got its roots in Germany. Therefore, we won't touch the number of German rounds on the calendar," he concluded.
