Just a few days after his 30th birthday and his second-place finish at the ‘Dream Race’ at Fuji, BMW DTM driver Marco Wittmann had another highlight to look forward to.

“I have been looking forward to my new company car for a long time. I was able to drive the BMW M8 Competition at the international media event in Portugal and I loved it straight away,” said Wittmann. “It never ceases to amaze me how BMW M sets new standards with each car.
