The 2019 DTM season concluded with an eventful wet race at Hockenheim. Timo Glock (JiVS BMW M4 DTM) was the best-placed BMW driver, finishing fourth. Joel Eriksson (CATL BMW M4 DTM) and Bruno Spengler (BMW Bank M4 DTM) were also in the points, finishing in sixth and ninth positions. After 18 races, Marco Wittmann (Schaeffler BMW M4 DTM) was the most successful BMW driver, scoring 202 points and securing third place overall. Victory in the finale went to Nico Müller (Audi).
Outside the top ten, Wittmann, Sheldon van der Linde (BMW M4 DTM) and Philipp Eng (ZF BMW M4 DTM) crossed the line in twelfth, 13th and 14th positions. The race was interrupted due to a host of incidents at the end of the first lap and then restarted behind the safety car. The rain, heavy at times, continued throughout the race.
The DTM season may be over, but the fans still have one more highlight to look forward to this year: on 23rd/24th November, three BMW M4 DTMs will be competing at the “Dream Race” featuring the DTM and the Japanese SUPER GT championship at Fuji. Alessandro Zanardi and Kamui Kobayashi have already been confirmed as drivers.
