For the drivers, the day began with media conferences and sponsor appointments, as well as a visit to the BMW Group plant in Munich, where they were given an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes and the opportunity to chat to the plant’s employees. Then, early in the afternoon, came the highlight of the BMW M Motorsport Car Launch – the presentation of the cars and drivers. The six BMW M4 DTMs for the new season were unveiled in front of the many fans who had made the trip to BMW Welt. Glock thrilled visitors by entering the stage in the DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM race taxi, while the BMW M6 GT3, BMW M4 GT4 and the BMW M1 Procar also delighted fans with their spectacular appearance. After the presentation, fans had the opportunity to get up close and personal with the drivers during an autograph session.
The launch is followed immediately this weekend by the BMW M Motorsport Days, which feature a wide range of motorsport-based events and activities at BMW Welt. The BMW and MINI Driving Experience offers driver experiences in BMW and BMW M cars on Saturday and Sunday. Furthermore, visitors can try their hand in the BMW M4 DTM Simulator, at the BMW Bank VR Experience, and on the BMW RC course. On Sunday, BMW DTM drivers Eng, Glock, Spengler and Wittmann will offer taxi rides from 13:30, before meeting their fans at another autograph session at 15:00.
