Quotes brazen of a DTM races during a Nürburgring.


Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director):

“After a conspicuous weekend during Misano, with a eventful first
night competition in a DTM, a initial DTM win for a 20-year-old rookie
Joel Eriksson, and a illusory guest coming by Alex Zanardi, we
are now looking brazen to a races during a Nürburgring. The history
of BMW in motorsport is closely related to this iconic circuit and we
have claimed many successes there in a DTM in a past. As such, the
Nürburgring is always of special stress to us. It is fitting
that we should strech this miracle of 100 races given a DTM
quip in 2012 during this circuit on Sunday. The eventuality in a Eifel
Mountains sees a 2018 DTM enter a finishing true and a goal
stays to put vigour on Mercedes and have a large contend in who wins the
races and ends adult on a podium. There is one vital cause that you
should never take your eye off during a Nürburgring: a unpredictable
weather, that can supplement even some-more piquancy to a races. Our teams will
work meticulously to safeguard they are as good prepared as probable to
face a Eifel challenges.”


Stefan Reinhold (Team Principal BMW Team RMG):

“The weekend during a Nürburgring is always a prominence of a season
for us, as it is a home eventuality for everybody in a team. Furthermore,
we have always been successful there in a past, so we have unequivocally fond
memories of competition wins and lectern finishes. We did not do everything
right in a eventful, rain-dominated Misano races, though we saw that
all 3 drivers had good pace. We would now like to modify this
into good formula during a Nürburgring, and to behind adult a success we
have already had this season.”

RMG – 4th place in a altogether standings, points: 112):

We have won races and enjoyed success there, and it is a home event
for BMW Team RMG. As such, it has turn something of a second home
for me. we am looking brazen to a weekend. With a Nürburgring,
Spielberg and afterwards a Hockenheim, we now conduct to circuits that have
matched us and where we have been clever in a past. we have had a lot
of nice, romantic moments with a group in a Eifel region, and it
would be good to have a few more.”


Augusto Farfus (#15 Shell BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMG –
16th place in a altogether standings, points: 40):

“I am most looking brazen to my miracle weekend during the
Nürburgring. It is a enchanting place. we am a large fan of the
Nordschleife, and of a whole place. It is considerable how intensive
a people during a Nürburgring live for motorsport. Last year, we had
bad fitness with a weather. we was heading a competition by a large margin, but
a sleet denied us a success. Nevertheless, we had a good gait and
we wish that this year we can get a good outcome during a team’s home round.”

Team RMG creates it even some-more special. we am looking brazen to the
weekend and am intrigued to see what a Eifel continue will be like
carrying only had soppy races in Italy.”

“The memories of an sparkling Misano weekend, of Philipp’s impressive
fightback on Saturday, and of Joel’s good lass DTM feat on
Sunday are still uninformed in a minds – and we now lapse to movement with
a second home eventuality of a year. Like Zandvoort, a Nürburgring is
not distant from a group domicile in Belgium. We are unequivocally motivated
and wish to supplement some-more successes to a record so distant this season. Our
smallest idea is to concede all 3 drivers to measure copiousness of points
during a Nürburgring.”


Bruno Spengler (#7 BMW Bank M4 DTM, BMW Team RBM –
14th place in a altogether standings, points: 44):

“The Nürburgring is a circuit that we unequivocally like. we have won there
several times in a past, so we have lustful Eifel memories. What makes
a Nürburgring so engaging is a weather. Sometimes it is
totally opposite to what we are expecting, and what has been
forecast. That always creates a competition weekend utterly exciting.
The fans during a Nürburgring are always good and we always suffer the
special and singular atmosphere during a Ring. The people there are
dyed-in-the-wool motorsport fans, and it is good fun to expostulate the
Eifel track.”


Philipp Eng (#25 SAMSUNG BMW M4 DTM, BMW Team RMR –

there an awful lot in new years, including in a VLN, ADAC GT
Masters and, of course, in a 24-hour race. we like a circuit and
consider it unequivocally suits my pushing style. we wish we have a contend in things
during a front of a margin again.”
