After a short summer break, BMW M Motorsport and the BMW DTM teams now return for the second half of the 2018 DTM season. The DTM is back at Brands Hatch in the south of England for the sixth of its ten race weekends. The iconic circuit in the county of Kent hosted the touring car series between 2006 and 2013. Back then, however, the shorter Indy variant was used, whereas this year’s races will be held on the 3.908-kilometre Grand Prix circuit. Most of the drivers are as yet unfamiliar with this layout, with the exception of BMW drivers Augusto Farfus, who won on the longer circuit in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (FIA WTCC), and BMW DTM rookie Philipp Eng, who knows the track from his time in GT racing. BMW raced in the DTM at Brands Hatch in 2012 and 2013, with Bruno Spengler finishing on the podium on both occasions.
