Well, I stumbled upon DTM in the process and we fell in love with what we found. Enough so that I wanted to give a cheap plug here in the blog for anyone reading who might be in the same place that I am.
Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, or DTM for short, is a German touring cars series that utilizes a silhouette style car and features races at European tracks and courses.
Here's their schedule for 2020.

Manufacturers included in DTM this season include Audi, Aston Martin, and BMW. Honda, Nissan, and Lexus were included last year but I see no notice of their involvement this season, as of yet.
Note that the races follow a time limit system versus what you may be used to, which ensures a fun but speedy and entertaining experience. That alone should make it worth seeing for race enthusiasts for the novelty if nothing else.
For more info, click here for the DTM Wikipedia and, once you're done, head over to their YouTube channel for some great content while we await the start of the 2020 season.
I know I'll be watching!
