The BMW drivers are out to put on another great show.

After the spectacular opener at the Hockenheimring, the 2018 DTM enters its second round this weekend. Races three and four of the season will take place on 19th and 20th May at the Lausitzring.

Timo Glock of BMW Team RMG arrives in the Lusatia region of Germany as the championship leader. He followed up third place in Saturday’s race at Hockenheim with a victory on Sunday, earning him 44 points and the top spot in the overall standings. His lengthy battle with Mercedes driver Gary Paffett will go down as one of the most exciting duels in the history of the DTM.

“The Lausitzring is actually one of my favourite tracks. I am really looking forward to it. It is an amazing track. I won there in Formula 4 and I have a good history at that track.”
Joel Eriksson (#47 BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM):

Rookie Joel Eriksson from BMW Team RBM also put in a noteworthy performance at the opening DTM weekend, qualifying third fastest on Sunday, before finishing fourth in race two. Eriksson is sixth in the championship, making him the second-best BMW driver. His team-mate Bruno Spengler is also in the top-ten in eighth place.

Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“The breathtaking battle between Timo Glock and Gary Paffett, and the incredible season-opener at Hockenheim in general, are obviously still in everyone’s minds. That is the kind of motorsport for which the DTM is known. That is what we want to offer the fans every weekend. Our next opportunity to do so is at the Lausitzring. Timo leads the Drivers’ Championship and, on the whole, we have made a very good start to the season. Unlike at Hockenheim, nobody has tested at the Lausitzring with the 2018 DTM cars. The longer layout is also new to everyone so it promises to be a weekend full of surprises, hopefully with some exciting battles like the one between Timo and Gary.”

Timo Glock (#16 DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR):

“The opening weekend at Hockenheim, with third place on Saturday and pole position and victory in that incredible Sunday race, was obviously fantastic. We will have to wait and see how it pans out at the Lausitzring. We have not been so strong there in the past. However, our goal for this season is to improve at the circuits where we have not done so well up to now, and to score as many points there as possible. The Lausitzring is one of those circuits. We are really motivated and will do our very best.”
