In BMW Team RMG’s home race at the Nürburgring, Marco Wittmann finished third to reach the podium in the BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM. After completing 40 laps, he was just 3.439 seconds behind the winner, René Rast (Audi). Wittmann now has 137 points and is the best-placed BMW driver in the overall standings, in fifth place. The BMW drivers once again gave a strong team performance with five BMW M4 DTMs making it into the top ten, scoring a total of 45 points.
Behind Wittmann, Bruno Spengler (BMW Bank M4 DTM) secured fourth place. Joel Eriksson (BMW M4 DTM), Augusto Farfus (Shell BMW M4 DTM) and Philipp Eng (SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM) followed in sixth, seventh and eighth positions. Timo Glock had to be content with 16th place after an early collision and subsequent drive-through penalty. As was the case on Saturday, BMW Team RBM claimed the fastest pit stop with Eriksson’s car.
BMW Motorsport, BMW Team RBM and BMW Team RMG were competing in their 100th DTM race since BMW’s comeback in 2012. Farfus and Spengler have been involved in every one of those 100 races.
