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.

Munich (DE), 9th October 2014. BMW DTM drivers Marco Wittmann (DE) and Augusto Farfus (BR) are returning to a legendary venue for the end of the 2014 motorsport season. From 13th to 16th November, the newly-crowned DTM champion and the man who finished runner-up in the 2013 DTM will take on the street circuit in Macau (CN) at the wheel of two BMW Z4 GT3s run by the AAI Rstrada team. The team, which lined up in the former Portuguese colony with BMW last year and has been competing in the Asian Le Mans Series in 2014, will field two cars at the Macau GT Cup, which sees some of the top GT3 cars in the world go head to head on the demanding “Guia Circuit”, the iconic street circuit through the heart of Macau.

“I am excited to be returning to Macau after a few years away, and to be able to drive there in a GT3 car,” said Wittmann. “In 2011, I won the qualifying race in a Formula 3 car, set the fastest race lap and finished third to claim a spot on the podium in the main race in Macau. As far as I am concerned, it is not only the best street circuit in the world, but also one of the most exciting racetracks around. I can hardly wait to get back out on this awesome circuit with the BMW Z4 GT3.”


Farfus was a regular in Macau during his time in the FIA World Touring Car Championship, as it traditionally provided the venue for the season finale of the WTCC. The Brazilian won twice at the “Guia Circuit”, his most recent success there coming at the wheel of the BMW 320si WTCC in 2009. Like Wittmann, Farfus is also really looking forward to returning to Macau: “This circuit was a huge challenge for us drivers in a WTCC car. It will be a real adventure to race there in the considerably more powerful BMW Z4 GT3. The atmosphere in Macau and, of course, the track itself have something magical about them, which you do not find anywhere else in the world. I can hardly wait to be back in Macau.”


Macau has been the scene of major success for BMW in the past. In 2005, 2006 and 2007, Andy Priaulx (GB) was crowned World Touring Car Champion there, usually in dramatic fashion. BMW drivers claimed five race wins in the WTCC in Macau between 2005 and 2009. In the history of the “Guia Race” for touring cars, BMW has won 21 races since 1980.

한국타이어가 공식 타이어를 독점 공급하는 ‘독일 투어링카 마스터즈(Deutsche Tourenwagen-Meisterschaft, DTM)’가 화려한 막을 올렸다.
 
지난 10일 독일 비즈바덴(Wiesbaden)에서 열린 개막식과 함께 2011 시즌을 시작한 DTM은 5월 1일 독일 호켄하임링(HockenheimRing)에서 열리는 첫 번째 라운드를 시작으로 10월까지 총 10번의 라운드가 진행될 예정이며, 한국타이어는 모든 DTM 경기에 공식 타이어를 제공하는 타이어 공급업체는 물론 대회 파트너로서의 역할을 수행할 예정이다.  
 
한국타이어 마케팅본부장 조현식 사장은 “한국타이어가 가진 세계 최고의 기술력을 전 세계 모터스포츠 팬들에게 선보이는 자리인 만큼 성공적인 시즌을 위한 만반의 준비를 마쳤다”며 “유럽을 대표하는 프리미엄 명차와 한국타이어가 보여줄 세계 최고 수준의 모터스포츠 이벤트를 기대해달라”고 밝혔다.
 
한편, DTM은 지난 1984년 독일 투어링카 마이스터샤프트(Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft)와 국제 투어링카 챔피언십(International Touring Car Championship)이 합쳐져 새롭게 출발한 레이싱 대회로 일본의 슈퍼 GT, 유럽의 FIA GT와 함께 세계 3대 투어링카 대회로 손꼽히고 있다.
