We’ve reached the halfway point of the 2012 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters season, which means it’s time to hit the Olympic Stadium in Munich for a reprisal of the non-championship scoring event that started last year. The Mercedes-Benz DTM teams are all preparing for the event, and looking to make it a springboard for more success for the latter half of the season.

Right now, Mercedes-Benz is ahead of the pack in every aspect—after the first 5 races, the automaker is ahead in the constructors’ standings, Gary Paffett is at the top of the drivers’ points, and HWA Team is leading the teams’ championship.

The 2-day event at the Olympic Stadium will have no bearing, but it will still be a good showcase for the teams and for the fans. There will be a new layout for this year’s event, and the Saturday race will be in a new relay format. The participating manufacturers will each field teams of 2 drivers. On the other hand, the Sunday event will see exciting head-to-head races featuring all 22 DTM drivers.

“We’re aiming to reward the fans in Munich for their great support this season and to lay on a feast of motor racing in the Olympic Stadium,” said Paffett.
