DTM to team with NASCAR in USA
Autosport reports that the DTM is working on creating an American series for its new cars from 2013, in conjunction with NASCAR.

The plan is part of the internationalization project that has gathered pace this year following BMW's interest in returning to the DTM ranks.

The Munich-based marque confirmed its entry for 2012 today at Hockenheim and DTM promoter ITR also revealed details of plans to allow the cars to race in America and Asia in the future.

ITR boss Hans Werner Aufrecht told Autosport: "In America, we are working with the NASCAR organization. Beginning in 2013, we hope to have a championship with 12 races in the United States.

"They will be six with Grand-Am and six with NASCAR events, for a standalone championship in America. I believe this is very, very good for the future of motorsport in the United States."

Aufrecht confirmed that the planned races would be exclusively for next-generation DTM cars, rather than running as a class in another series in America.
