The initial verdict on DTM's move to GT3 cars

OPINION: Facing collapse last year, the DTM has shifted its philosophy from a championship for silhouette-based touring cars to GT machines not too dissimilar to those racing across multiple series worldwide. But despite some initial BoP-based teething troubles, there were some pleasant findings as the 'new DTM' got underway at Monza

Fourteen months after Audi's shock exit plunged the future of the DTM into doubt, 19 GT3 cars lined up on the grid at Monza last weekend for the start of a new era for the series, one based around GT3 cars and privateer teams as opposed to silhouette tourers and factory competition.

Red Bull's rising star Liam Lawson became a popular winner in the first race, earning his place in the history books for more than one reason, with Audi GT3 ace Kelvin van der Linde taking top honours a day later.
