Hungry for more

The BMW goal always remains the same: to win titles. And since the DTM comeback of the brand in 2012, they won impressive seven titles of the 12 that would have been possible. Last year, the Bavarians struggled with some problems in the early stages of the season but thanks to a great team effort, they clinched the manufacturers’ title, nevertheless. The eight BMW vehicles will be raced by the same eight drivers as in 2015 – in this area, BMW banks on consistency. The drivers are supposed to add another chapter to the splendid motor-racing history of BMW The first DTM race ever, held on 11th March 1984 at Zolder, Belgium, ended with a one-two-three-four for the Bavarian manufacturer. The race was won by Harald Grohs in his BMW 635 CSi, with fellow BMW driver Volker Strycek finishing third in the same type of car and securing the first DTM title ever in the season finale. Up to 1992, BMW contested every DTM season and proved to be a regular factor in the battle for the title. Eric van de Poele (1987) and Roberto Ravaglia (1989) secured the big drivers’ championship trophy at the wheel of BMW touring cars. After their retirement, it took BMW 20 years to opt for their DTM comeback. But it was a comeback with a bang. Bruno Spengler won the 2012 drivers’ title right away, BMW Team Schnitzer secured the team championship and the manufacturers’ title also was won by BMW. Two years later, Marco Wittmann gave BMW their fifth and – to date – last DTM Drivers’ Championship title. Some of the other outstanding highlights in the BMW motor-racing history are the triumph in the 1983 Formula One World Championship with the Brabham-BMW and courtesy of Nelson Piquet, 19 overall wins in the Nürburgring 24h Race and the triumph in the 1999 Le Mans 24h Race. In addition to the company’s works involvements in production car and GT racing, the brand always has been represented in the customer sport. So, the racing cars from Munich celebrate race wins and title triumphs all around the world.
