Previewed at the end of August by Sector 3 Studios, RaceRoom update 0.9.1.6 adds DTM 2020 cars DLC to capture what may be the historic final season for the 650bhp turbo touring machines.
It includes the release of the DTM 2020 Car Pack, which costs £10.89 and includes the Audi RS 5 DTM 2020 and BMW M4 DTM 2020 with all of the 16 team liveries for every driver. And also the regulations including specific Push to Pass and DRS regulations from the DTM series.
One of the DTM features, an Anti-Lag System, will be shared to other relevant cars in future updates, and there are more improvements to non-DTM areas of RaceRoom. These include modernising Brands Hach, Red Bull Ring and Suzuka to their 2020 stats, and some track limit adjuustment to the GP and Club layouts at Dubai.

- DTM 2020 uses a specific Push to Pass regulation:

Push to Pass is not available in the first lap.
Push to Pass is not available to the race leader. (A race leader is determined at the crossing of each track sector and not only at the start/finish line)
Push to Pass is available regardless of the gap to the car in front of you.
- DTM 2020 uses a specific DRS regulation: 3 activations per lap for a maximum number of activations set to half the expected amount of race laps (rounded up). (i.e.: a 18 laps race will give you a maximum of 9 activations, and since you can activate it 3 times per lap, you can run out of DRS within only 3 laps).
