Calendar

To avoid a clash of coverage times with the 2009 Bahrain Grand Prix, the season opener traditionally held at Hockenheim will now take place on May 17, three weeks later than originally planned. Consequently, the EuroSpeedway round that had been scheduled for this date was moved to May 31. The Brands Hatch round was also moved back a week due to the 2009 Belgian Grand Prix, from August 30 to September 6.

Dijon-Prenois will make its maiden appearance on the DTM calendar in 2009. It will be the penultimate round of the season, to be held on October 11.

Mugello isn't a part of the 2009 DTM calendar, due to the lack of free spaces on the calendar to hold a race there.
