Hockenheim (DE), 19th October 2014. We take a look back at the milestones achieved since 1984 – from the maiden victory with the BMW 635 CSi in the very first DTM race to the countless triumphs since the DTM comeback of BMW in 2012. In the past three seasons, BMW secured six out of nine titles and won 50 per cent of all races. 


1984

The history of the DTM begins with the first race in Zolder (BE) on 11th March 1984. BMW celebrates victory as well as the top four places, with Harald Grohs (DE) crossing the finishing line first in a BMW 635 CSi. It is Volker Strycek (DE) from Team Gubin, however, who finishes fifth at the finale at the Nürburgring to secure the first title for BMW. 


1985

Harald Grohs ends the second season of the DTM third in the drivers’ standings, making him the best-placed BMW driver. He wins again at the wheel of the BMW 635 CSi in Zolder, while Winfried Vogt (DE) triumphs at Mainz-Finthen (DE) in a BMW 323i. 


1986

Both Kurt König (DE) and Volker Strycek finish in the top five of the drivers’ standings with the BMW 635 CSi. König also picks up the only BMW victory of the year – the Grenzland-Preis in Zolder. 


1987

The BMW M3 makes its DTM debut – and is immediately the car to beat. Harald Grohs, Marc Hessel (DE), Olaf Manthey (DE) and Fabien Giroix (FR) claim five victories in total. The title, however, goes to former BMW Junior driver Eric van de Poele (BE), despite finishing a lowly tenth at the finale at the Salzburgring (AT) due to a puncture. 


1988

Markus Oestreich (DE), in a BMW M3, is in the title race right up until the end of the 1988 season. After the last of the 24 rounds, however, he has to settle for fourth place overall. 

1989

Roberto Ravaglia (IT) starts the season with two victories in Zolder – and goes on to finish on top after the finale in Hockenheim. BMW M Team Schnitzer and Team Principal Charly Lamm (DE) enjoy a virtually perfect debut season in the DTM. As well as Ravaglia (three victories), Steve Soper (GB, two) and Johnny Cecotto (VE, one) also win in the BMW M3. 

1990

BMW, Audi and Mercedes produce a thrilling three-way battle for the title – just as they do in the 2012 season. BMW claims victory at eight of the 22 races. Despite this, Johnny Cecotto narrowly misses out on the fourth title, having to settle for runner-up. 


1991

Fourth-placed Johnny Cecotto is once again the best-placed BMW driver at the end of the year. The Venezuelan wins three races, while fellow BMW driver Steve Soper occupies the top step of the podium on four occasions. Joachim Winkelhock (DE) also joins the list of winners in Wunstorf (DE). 


1992

BMW competes with a works team in the DTM for the last time for a while: Johnny Cecotto again finishes fourth in the Drivers' Championship to end the season as the number one BMW driver. Roberto Ravaglia provides a magical moment at the season finale in Hockenheim on 11th October 1992: he claims two victories in the BMW M3's last works outing in the DTM. 


2012

BMW returns to the DTM after almost 20 years and competes with three teams and six drivers. Among them is once again BMW Team Schnitzer, and it soon becomes apparent history is repeating itself. As in 1989, when Charly Lamm and his team made their debut in the DTM, the crew from Freilassing is the team to beat. Bruno Spengler (CA) wins four races, with Augusto Farfus (BR) adding a fifth triumph for BMW. Together, BMW Team Schnitzer, BMW Team RBM and BMW Team RMG claim 12 podiums over the course of the comeback year. In a thrilling finale to the season in Hockenheim, Spengler overturns a three-point deficit to finish four points ahead of Mercedes driver Gary Paffett (GB). The Canadian, who ends the season with 149 points to his name, becomes the fourth BMW champion in the history of the DTM, following in the footsteps of Volker Strycek, Eric van de Poele and Roberto Ravaglia. A further ten points, courtesy of Dirk Werner (DE), sees BMW Team Schnitzer claim the title in the team competition. The icing on the cake is first place in the Manufacturers’ Championship. 


2013

2013 sees BMW Motorsport expand its DTM commitment, with eight BMW M3 DTMs rather than six cars. BMW Team MTEK and its drivers Marco Wittmann (DE) and Timo Glock (DE) join the squad. The second season after BMW’s comeback ends with five race wins and the defence of the Manufacturers’ title. Augusto Farfus (BR) and Bruno Spengler (CA) finish second and third behind champion Mike Rockenfeller (DE) in the Drivers’ Championship. Wittmann receives the “Rookie of the Year” award. 


2014

BMW competes with the new BMW M4 DTM, which replaces the extremely successful BMW M3 DTM. The very first race in Hockenheim ends in victory. Marco Wittmann claims his maiden win on the new car’s debut. This also marks BMW’s 60th victory in the DTM. A further three wins are to follow for Wittmann, in Budapest, Spielberg and at the Nürburgring. The BMW Team RMG driver dominates the season and is crowned the youngest German DTM champion of all time with two races still remaining. BMW Team RMG achieves the next success at the penultimate round in Zandvoort (NL), winning the Team competition. The team’s second driver, Maxime Martin (BE), claims his maiden win in only his fifth DTM race in Moscow (RU) and is named Rookie of the Year come the end of the season. In Spielberg, BMW Motorsport occupies the top four positions for the first time since its comeback. Wittmann wins the race, ahead of Augusto Farfus, Timo Glock and Martin Tomczyk. In total, the BMW M4 DTM was first across the finish line on five occasions in its first season.

Vallelunga (IT), 27th February 2014. Alessandro Zanardi continued his preparation for his comeback season with BMW. The 47-year-old Italian completed a comprehensive test with his BMW Z4 GT3, which the BMW works driver will race in the 2014 Blancpain Sprint Series with ROAL Motorsport. This week Zanardi and ROAL Motorsport spent several days testing at “Autodromo Vallelunga” near Rome (IT).

The team evaluated further modifications to the BMW Z4 GT3 that the team and BMW Motorsport have done based on the experiences of the first roll-out at the end of January in Adria (IT). Some of the special features of the car had been updated in order to perfectly meet the requirement of the racing driver who had both his legs amputated. In addition, Zanardi and ROAL Motorsport started to work on the car’s set-up. Conditions were mainly dry, with sun on the first day. In the afternoon of the second day it started to rain. For the third day the weather was better again. But in the morning, when the tarmac was still damp and slippery, Zanardi went off the track, which caused some damage to the car. The team decided not to continue with the test in order to repair the car at the work-shop. Overall, Zanardi is happy with this first proper test in his BMW Z4 GT3.

“Honestly, it is very hard not to totally show my enthusiasm, and I don’t want to sound too overconfident, but after this test I have every reason to be confident”, Zanardi summed up. “Because not only the throttle mechanism, the brake pedal and the special clutch, but also all the other controls created for my personal needs are working so well we were able to focus on the set-up of the car. Just this fact is good news. But in addition, we are going home knowing that we showed considerable performance in terms of lap times. The BMW Z4 GT3 is literally sheer driving pleasure. We have been able to be fast on worn tyres, we have been able to really learn the car and we have been able to make changes to it which helped us to better understand what we should do for qualifying, and what to do for the race to have a consistent machine. So we are going home with a lot of information, and it is going to be tough to improve even further. But nevertheless, we are going to keep pushing because we are all highly motivated and excited about this opportunity and this project we are doing together. Therefore I am very, very happy and I can’t wait to get in the car again.”

“We are pretty happy because the work done since the first outing with Alex at Adria was successful”, added Roberto Ravaglia, Team Principal of ROAL Motorsport. “We could improve many things and are already in a pretty good shape. All the special systems are working quite well. In addition, Alex was able to do a lot of laps here in Vallelunga to understand the car on a proper circuit and he started to work on the set-up. I have to say that I was actually surprised. Because in Adria, which is not a difficult circuit, he was already doing well, but here in Vallelunga he was even better, so I am confident that Alex could already be quite competitive in the first races.”

Zanardi lost both legs in a serious crash while racing in 2001, but only two years later he successfully returned to motorsport with BMW. Among other things, he contested in the FIA World Touring Car Championship (WTCC) for several seasons, where he celebrated four race wins. Having won two gold medals on his handbike at the 2012 Paralympics in London (GB) and completed a test in the BMW M3 DTM in the same year, he is now set to contest a full season for BMW for the first time since 2009. Zanardi’s first race in the Blancpain Sprint Series is scheduled for the 21st April in Nogaro (FR).

Munich, 26th February 2014. The stage is set for a thrilling 2014 season. The focus in recent seasons was on the works engagement in the Superbike World Championship, now BMW Motorrad Motorsport is prominently represented in many racing series around the world through its beefed up customer racing programme.


With this expanded customer racing programme, BMW Motorrad Motorsport is active in world championships, other international racing series, and national championships in 2014. The full attention of BMW Motorrad Motorsport is directed to its customers.

BMW Motorrad Motorsport is also represented in the prestigious British Superbike Championship (BSB), where they support Buildbase BMW Motorrad with James Westmoreland (GB), Ryuichi Kiyonari (JP) and Lee Jackson (GB). The Munich specialists are also involved in many other national championships on various continents. In addition, BMW Motorrad Motorsport will be present at important road-racing events: with Michael Dunlop (GB) and BMW / Hawk Racing at the Isle of Man TT, the Macau Grand Prix, the North West 200 and the Ulster Grand Prix.


The customer racing programme at BMW Motorrad Motorsport was launched in 2011 and enjoyed immediate success. Right from that first season, BMW customer teams and riders have been winning races and titles on the BMW S 1000 RR. As part of the re-alignment, BMW Motorrad Motorsport is now working even closer with its customers around the world. This close relationship with riders and teams is at the centre of the commitment. The range of services on offer also includes technical on-site support from BMW Motorrad Motorsport experts, who travel to the races with the teams.


For riders in the Superbike World Championship the season got underway last weekend. The BMW Motorrad Motorsport engineers were in action at Phillip Island, Australia. Unfortunately, Sylvain Barrier of the BMW Motorrad Italia Superbike Team and Peter Sebestyen of BMW Team Toth crashed heavily during the official Dorna testing before the first race weekend. Both were forced to sit out the season opener. Australian Glenn Allerton took over duties on Barrier’s BMW S 1000 RR Evo at Phillip Island. He finished the races in the Evo class in third and fifth respectively (11th and 15th overall). Sebestyen was not replaced. His team-mate Imre Toth, who competes on a WSBK-Version of the RR, finished in 16th and 19th respectively.

“The Superbike World Championship is familiar terrain for us, and we will face the new challenge of the EVO class with great enthusiasm,” said Berthold Hauser, Technical Director of BMW Motorrad Motorsport. “We worked closely with our partner teams over the winter, in order to implement the technical specifications in the new regulations. We will consistently continue this support throughout the season with our engineers, who will work on-site with the teams at all the races. Unfortunately our riders did not escape injury on the opening weekend, but congratulations to Glenn Allerton who showed a strong performance on our Evo RR. I am convinced BMW can once again impress in the Superbike World Championship this year. And not just there, but also in all the other series in which BMW Motorrad customer teams compete with our support.”


The BMW Motorrad Motorsport hospitality will be present at selected races in Europe in the 2014 WSBK racing season. This structure will be used by local markets as a platform for activities which will bring customers closer to the BMW Motorrad brand.
