BMW M are celebrating a rather special weekend at the Nürburgring’s DTM they secure podium places of 1st and 3rd for drivers Bruno Spengler & Charly Lamm, marking the 50th victory for BMW.
“When I won at the Lausitzring, I found it difficult to take in what had happened. It was the 50th victory for BMW and the first of its comeback season. We made history there. The race at the Nürburgring was all about the 40th birthday of BMW M. In addition, the Green Hell is something of a home track for BMW, so this was another very special success. I am overjoyed and really proud.”
“I agree entirely. I have to say the victory at the Nürburgring felt completely different to the triumph at the Lausitzring. Back then, everything seemed to happen ridiculously quickly and we were still DTM newcomers really. Now we are far more aware of what awaits us in this series. As such, the second win was special because we did not really find our form at the start of the weekend and had to gradually find the optimal set-up. Then everything came together in the race – and Bruno produced an immense performance.”
Victory at the Nürburgring (DE) saw Bruno Spengler (CA) increase his points tally in the DTM Drivers’ Championship to 83, putting him in second place going into the seventh race of the season. BMW Team Schnitzer is third in the Team Championship on 84 points. After the triumph in the Eifel Mountains.
Both drivers seem enthusiastic about the rest of the season where they add that their foot is well and truly on the gas.
And BMW of course cheekily add I “M” Back on the clever branding of the microphone.
