DTM plan for 10,000 spectators per day at Assen
The DTM organisation has announced plans to have 10,000 spectators each day of the Assen race weekend on September 4-6.
“This is great news for us and for all the fans of the DTM. We can hardly await finally welcoming spectators at the track,” said Gerhard Berger, chairman of ITR.
“The DTM got its season off to a strong start at Spa-Francorchamps and a pleasing number of viewers has been watching the race action on TV and the online platforms. However, excited fans on the grandstands are a part of a race, not only at Assen, but hopefully also during further rounds of the 2020 DTM.”
Measures to ensure the required hygiene and safety measures will be made with separated grandstands and minimum distance of 1,5 metres.
“As the organiser of the DTM race in Assen, we have drawn up a Covid-19 plan in cooperation with our partners,” said Lee van Dam, CEO LDP International b.v., organizer DTM Assen.
“A big advantage is that the TT Circuit Assen offers a lot of space. We have the longest grandstand in Europe, on which we have the opportunity to welcome 10,000 fans per day while maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5 meters, with parking lots at each grandstand, direct access to each sector and the assigned seats.”
