This outlook has turned into a tradition: just as they do every year, BMW Motorsport once again used their end-of-season celebrations in Maisach, not far from Munich, to present the corner posts of their motor-racing involvement in the 2015 season. And once again, DTM represents the pinnacle of numerous BMW motor-racing campaigns all over the world.
“We once again will contest the DTM season with eight BMWs M4 DTM and it won’t come as a surprise that we want to tie in with the big successes we celebrated in the past,” says BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “Our driver line-up remains virtually unchanged and seven of the eight drivers who raced our BMWs M4 DTM in 2014 also will do so next year. Meanwhile, Joey Hand is going to meet new challenges, next year. We want to sincerely thank him for the commitment he displayed for BMW in the past years and wish him all the best and a lot of success for his future.”
In DTM, BMW Motorsport will try hard to extend their already impressive success record. In 2015, Wittmann secured the DTM Drivers’ Championship, with his BMW M4 DTM, the team title was won by BMW Team RMG and Maxime Martin was awarded the Rookie of the Year Award. In the three years since their DTM comeback in 2012, BMW won six of the nine titles available and 50 percent of all the races held in this period of time.
