Will touring car races come to Monaco?

Gerhard Berger, the boss of Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters (German Touring Car Masters), recently hosted HSH Prince Albert as his guest at a DTM event at Norisring, increasing speculation over a possible Monaco touring car race on the German model.

The trade press has since speculated that the pair discussed the concept of DTM racing in Monaco.

“There has also been much talk about a possible race in Monaco on the occasion of Prince Albert’s visit,” said Berger. “After what I have experienced today, I have to say: my dream would be two city DTM events, one in Nuremberg, at the Norisring, and one in Monaco.”

Berger added: “That’s been my wish for a long time, so let’s see: Maybe he likes it so much that he opens the doors for us.” DTM races currently take place at a number of venues in Europe.
