Posted on 14. May, 2018 by in BMW Canada

Munich. After a illusory opener during a Hockenheimring
(GER), a 2018 DTM enters a second turn this weekend. Races
3 and 4 of a deteriorate will take place on 19th and
20th May during a Lausitzring (GER). Timo Glock (GER) of
BMW Team RMG arrives in a Lusatia segment of Germany as the
championship leader. He followed adult third place in Saturday’s race
during Hockenheim with a feat on Sunday, earning him 44 points and
a tip mark in a altogether standings. His extensive conflict with
Mercedes motorist Gary Paffett (GBR) will go down as one of a most
sparkling duels in a story of a DTM.

Rookie Joel Eriksson (SWE) from BMW Team RBM also put
in a notable opening during a opening DTM weekend, qualifying
third fastest on Sunday, before finishing fourth in competition two. Eriksson
is sixth in a championship, creation him a second-best BMW driver.
His team-mate Bruno Spengler (CAN) is also in a top-ten in eighth place.

Expectations brazen of a DTM races during a Lausitzring.

Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):
“The
monumental conflict between Timo Glock and Gary Paffett, and the
implausible season-opener during Hockenheim in general, are apparently still
in everyone’s minds. That is a kind of motorsport for that a DTM
is known. That is what we wish to offer a fans each weekend. Our
subsequent event to do so is during a Lausitzring. Timo leads the
Drivers’ Championship and, on a whole, we have finished a unequivocally good
start to a season. Unlike during Hockenheim, nobody has tested during the
Lausitzring with a 2018 DTM cars. The longer blueprint is also new to
everybody so it promises to be a weekend full of surprises, hopefully
with some sparkling battles like a one between Timo and Gary.”

 

Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal, BMW Team
RMG):
“After a season-opener during Hockenheim, we travel
to a Lausitzring with copiousness of momentum. The atmosphere in a team
is unequivocally positive. We contingency apparently do a task before a next
races to safeguard that Marco and Augusto finish aloft adult this time. We
are also wakeful that we have not always fared as good during the
Lausitzring as during other circuits in a past. We will work tough to
change all that this year.”

Marco Wittmann (#11 BMW Driving Experience M4 DTM, BMW Team
RMG – 13th overall, points: 2):
“It is
critical for us to take a step brazen compared to Hockenheim,
quite in terms of competition pace. We have seen that it is possible,
as Timo was intensely clever during Hockenheim. We have to do that better
during a Lausitzring. we apparently have a lot of associations with the
Lausitzring, generally after winning my initial DTM pretension there in
2014. As such, we have a lot of unequivocally lustful memories of a circuit.”

Augusto Farfus (#15 Shell BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMG –
14th overall, points: 1):
“Hockenheim was a
training routine and now we need to modify it to formula during the
Lausitzring. I’m assured since a competition gait was there on Sunday
during Hockenheim. we consider that a Lausitzring will be good, since it
is still new for everybody with a new cars and everybody will start
from 0 there. In that respect, we consider that it will be a good challenge.”

Timo Glock (#16 DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR –
1st overall, points: 44):

“The opening weekend during Hockenheim, with third place on Saturday and
stick position and feat in that implausible Sunday race, was
apparently fantastic. We will have to wait and see how it pans out at
a Lausitzring. We have not been so clever there in a past.
However, a idea for this deteriorate is to urge during a circuits where
we have not finished so good adult to now, and to measure as many points there
as possible. The Lausitzring is one of those circuits. We are really
encouraged and will do a unequivocally best.”

Bart Mampaey (Team Principal, BMW Team RBM):
“We
are unequivocally vehement about a races during a Lausitzring. We wish to build
on a certain start during a Hockenheimring. Joel roughly finished it onto
a lectern as a rookie on a Sunday, while Bruno fought back
fantastically. That shows that we are on a right path. Philipp also
schooled a lot from his initial start of a season. we am certain that his
initial points will not be prolonged in coming. The fact that we constructed the
fastest array stop of a whole margin on a Sunday during Hockenheim
showed that a group is doing an glorious job.”

Bruno Spengler (#7 BMW Bank M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM –
8th overall, points: 12):
“The formula at
Hockenheim were not bad, with points finishes in both races. The
Lausitzring is a circuit that we unequivocally like. we am intrigued to see how
a automobile gets on there. We unequivocally have a intensity to do well. I
have won races during a Lausitzring in a past, and a new blueprint is
quite nice. The fans in Lusatia are always good too.”

Philipp Eng (#25 SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR –
17th overall, points: -):
“I have always
been successful during a Lausitzring in a past. Last year, we did well
there with a BMW M6 GT3 in a ADAC GT Masters. we also did my first
laps in a DTM automobile there – during a rookie test. Those are good memories.
Let’s see how we get on there with a SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM.”

Joel Eriksson (#47 BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM – 6th
overall, points: 13):
“We have some work to do, for
sure, though we are on a very, unequivocally good path. For me it only about
gripping pulling and stability to work as tough as probable since it
is so parsimonious and tough in DTM. The Lausitzring is indeed one of my
favourite tracks. we am unequivocally looking brazen to it. It is an amazing
track. we won there in Formula 4 and we have a good story during that track.”
