FG Series and DTM launch innovative collaboration to support the next generation of motorsport

FG Series, an innovative all-electric racing series with a groundbreaking concept, will work closely with the DTM through an exciting new collaboration that will support the next generation of motorsport. The goal of the cooperation is to promote the development of motorsport in a sustainable and forward-thinking manner, and to offer talented young drivers comprehensive support throughout the process.

FG Series, of which former Formula 1 and Formula E driver Nick Heidfeld is a co-founder, has set itself the task of reducing the financial obstacles standing in the way of those wishing to get involved in motorsport, and to make the sport more accessible and raise its profile around the world. The groundbreaking concept, which includes using one car for two championships (FG1 and FG2) forms a bridge between karting and professional racing series. The dual power concept, which includes two different performance levels, and two different drive types (rear and four-wheel drive) allows FG Series to offer drivers comprehensive training for all the challenges they may face in the world of motorsport.

The Joint Mission: Sustainability, Promotion and Innovation
The partnership between FG Series and the DTM, which is now in its second year under the umbrella of the ADAC, is based on a deep-rooted shared mission: the promotion of sustainability, the support of talented young drivers, and the introduction of innovative concepts in motorsport. For this reason, both organisations are keen to work closely together to achieve their joint goals and shape motorsport in a way that makes it fit for the future.

From 2025, FG Series and its two championships – FG1 and FG2 – will race during the DTM weekend schedule. In doing so, they will add to the entertainment on the track and enhance the sustainability measures already in place within the biggest European GT series. Furthermore, joint projects to promote young drivers and the implementation of innovative concepts are also planned. The integration of FG Series in one of the most prestigious motorsport series in Europe, and its strategic alignment, underlines the importance and potential of FG Series. The collaboration sees the DTM take on a pioneering role worldwide, as the first global motorsport brand to include the groundbreaking concept of the FG Series in its programme.

Thomas Voss, ADAC Motorsport Director, is impressed by the concept of FG Series: “We believe this is the way to shape the motorsport of the future. FG Series combines innovation with the promotion of youth and complements our vision perfectly. It will contribute significantly to the further development of our platform, particularly the areas of innovation, sustainability and digitalisation. FG Series will also be a perfect training platform for the entire ADAC youth development programme, as it not only supports drivers, but everyone involved in motor racing through its comprehensive programmes and scholarships.”

Nick Heidfeld, Co-Founder and Sporting Director of FG Series, adds: “I am delighted to have come full circle on a personal level through this cooperation with the ADAC. When I first started racing, I benefitted from the way the ADAC supports young drivers, and we will now work together to promote and shape the next generation of motorsport. My path into Formula 1 and Formula E showed me how important not only talent and luck are, but also how much you need racing series capable of preparing you for the challenges you will face in professional motorsport. With FG Series, we are now providing this holistic training platform. The collaboration with the DTM secures us our first strong regional platform, where drivers can showcase their talents at established events on tracks that are relevant to them.”

More detailed information on the development and structure of the cooperation will be announced in the coming months. Please visit the FG Series website for more information.

About FG Series:

FG Series is a global all-electric motorsports series that will race as a support series with two championship levels (FG1 and FG2), using the world’s first dual powered race car FG-Twin. FG Series’ inaugural season, commencing in 2025, will feature independent regional championships, each with 10 team franchises. With the FG-Twin race car and its unique technical ability to be raced at reduced power by one driver, and then at full power by a more experienced driver, each race event will see 20 competing in the reduced-power race FG2, and 20 competing in the full powered FG1 Championship.

The five core principles encapsulate the FG Series values: Green, Groundbreaking, Good, Growth and Global. These values will prioritize sustainability within motorsport with a constant stride to generate more opportunities for talent from all aspects of the sport to flourish.

FG Series is poised to bring affordable, accessible, exciting, and competitive green energy open-wheel racing to motorsports fans around the world will be the pathway for race drivers and teams from all regions of the world to compete and perfect their professional racing skills – both on the right race tracks and in front of the right audiences.

About the ADAC and the DTM sustainability concept:

The ADAC and the DTM have taken on a pioneering role when it comes to sustainability in motorsport. Since 2023, the DTM has used a sustainable and environmentally-friendly fuel, made of 50% renewable components. In doing so, the DTM is making an important contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions. The DTM has set itself the goal of racing with a fuel containing no fossil components by 2026.

The free ADAC Pendlernetz app allows fans to share lifts to DTM events. This saves both the environment and money. Last year, the International Automobile Federation FIA recognised the app with the president’s sustainability award. Since 2024, the NXT Gen Cup – the only electric one-make cup in Europe on the circuit racing scene, which features a fully-electric racing version of the Mini SE – has been a permanent support series of the DTM.
