The BMW teams in a DTM are looking to behind adult their impressive

Quotes brazen of a third competition weekend of 2016 during a Lausitzring.


Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“The 2016 motorsport deteriorate has a quick stroke during a moment, that is
how we like it: initial a DTM races in Spielberg, where we won twice,
afterwards a 24-hour competition during a iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife. In
total, 5 of a DTM drivers were in movement during a continuation classic
in a Eifel Mountains. Timo Glock dull off a fortuitous as a TV
expert. At a same time, Bruno Spengler also finished a guest appearance
in a Australian GT Championship. And there is no time to locate your
breath: a subsequent motorsport festival awaits us this weekend during the
Lausitzring – with a DTM, ADAC GT Masters and a SUPERBIKE*IDM
combining an overwhelming threesome. BMW and BMW Motorrad are represented in
all 3 series. Therefore, it promises to be a unequivocally special weekend
in a Lausitz segment for us and a fans. After a new success,
we apparently transport to a EuroSpeedway with a lot of momentum.
However, a cards will be re-shuffled compared to Spielberg. That is
usually how it is in a DTM.”


Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal, BMW Team RMG): 

“The competition weekend in a Lausitz segment will be a outrageous event. We will
have a parsimonious schedule, that facilities 3 racing series, and
hopefully a lot of fans, who will revisit a Lausitzring to check out
a good programme. We are dynamic to do improved there this time
than we have in new years. We had a good exam for the
Lausitzring in a winter break. Therefore, we wish we can now put
what we schooled there into practice. 
We are positively full of
certainty after a success in Spielberg.”


Ernest Knoors (Team Principal, BMW Team MTEK):

“Previously, a races during a Lausitzring have always been a bit
formidable for us. However, we trust we should have a improved chance
this year. we am unequivocally unequivocally looking brazen to a unique
hurdles that wait us on this packaged weekend of racing.”


Bart Mampaey (Team Principal, BMW Team RBM):

“I wish we are spared final year’s haze this time around. However, it
is unequivocally formidable to make any predictions. Everyone is so evenly
matched in a DTM. The initial few races of a year have shown that:
24 cars within 7 tenths of a second. You usually have to keep working
tough all a time. However, we am assured we will seize a possibility to
measure points again during a Lausitzring when that eventuality arises.”


Charly Lamm (Team Principal, BMW Team Schnitzer):

“We gifted highs and lows over a march of a Spielberg
weekend. The upwards trend we showed in subordinate is unequivocally a
positive. With a DTM so uniformly matched, a grid position is quite
simply a unequivocally critical factor. With courtesy to a Lausitzring, our
idea is now to behind adult a swell we made, and to modify it into
decent results.”


Marco Wittmann (car array 11, BMW Team RMG):

“The competition weekend during a Lausitzring will positively be a good event.
Not usually will a DTM be there, yet also a ADAC GT Masters and the
IDM. Whatever happens, it is going to be sparkling – generally for the
spectators. The Lausitzring has not always been a happiest stomping
belligerent for BMW, yet we did secure a Drivers’ pretension there in 2014. For
this reason, we also have unequivocally lustful memories of this circuit.”


Timo Glock (car array 16, BMW Team RMG):

“It will be an overwhelming eventuality for a fans, that many is certain. The
organisers have put together an sparkling programme, that promises a
lot of racing movement with a DTM, ADAC GT Masters and a IDM. I
apparently wish that we can perform good again. We have had a odd
problem in new years, yet we have a good feeling this season.”


Bruno Spengler (car array 7, BMW Team MTEK):

“First and foremost, a weekend is going to be a outrageous festival of
motorsport, as 3 good array will be in action. It is going to be
unequivocally cool. we have some lustful memories of a circuit, and have won
there a few times in a past. we like a blueprint of a track. For
this reason, we am unequivocally looking brazen to a weekend, and
generally to a fans and a good atmosphere.”


Augusto Farfus (car array 18, BMW Team MTEK):

“The Lausitzring has traditionally not been a best venue for us.
However, a many critical thing for a championship is to keep
scoring. Right now we’re on a right path, and we need to stay on
that path. we wish we can repeat my 2012 result: Putting a Shell BMW
M4 DTM on a lectern would be a good prerogative for all a team’s tough work.”


Tom Blomqvist (car array 31, BMW Team RBM):

“The Lausitzring is a finish conflicting of Spielberg. The lane is
unequivocally narrow, technically perfectionist and uneven, that means it will be
a totally opposite plea for us. we consider we will find it a bit
easier there this year than we did in 2015. However, we also assume
that a antithesis will make it distant from easy for us.”


Maxime Martin (car array 36, BMW Team RBM):

“Things have not always left wholly to devise for BMW during the
Lausitzring in a past. we wish we do something about that this time.
Last year, things were going comparatively fine for me towards a finish of
a competition weekend. For this reason, we am looking brazen to a weekend
and will try to collect adult a few points, as we have finished during a initial four
races of a year.”


António Félix da Costa (car array 13, BMW Team Schnitzer):

“It is unequivocally fun to expostulate during this circuit, even yet we have not
indispensably enjoyed my best formula there. we am dynamic to change
that this year. we consider we have schooled a lot about this lane over
a past dual years. Therefore, a idea is to measure points and finish
as distant adult a margin as possible.”


Martin Tomczyk (car array 100, BMW Team Schnitzer):

“With a DTM, ADAC GT Masters and a IDM, it is going to be a
packaged weekend during a Lausitzring, and a crowds can demeanour brazen to
copiousness of action. It will also make a good change for us drivers,
nonetheless it will apparently be tiring. we have had good practice on
this track, and have won there in a past. However, it will certainly
not be easy.”
