A new form of teamwork: BMW teams RMG and RBM providing a common array organisation for a 2017 DTM season.

Munich. The 2017 DTM deteriorate is quick approaching. This week’s
tests during a Hockenheimring (3rd-6th April)
symbol a final stages of credentials for a BMW teams.


BMW Team RMG – with drivers Marco Wittmann (GER), Augusto Farfus
(BRA) and Timo Glock (GER) – and BMW Team RBM – with drivers Maxime
Martin (BEL), Bruno Spengler (CAN) and Tom Blomqvist (GBR) – will each
be competing with 3 cars in this year’s 18 races. The dual BMW M4
DTMs of Glock and Blomqvist will be upheld by a total crew,
consisting of mechanics and engineers from both BMW teams. This squad
will go by a name of Reinhold Mampaey Racing, or “RMR” for short.

“Working together ideally as a group is positively essential in
motorsport,” says BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “The crews
from RMG and RBM pity a effort for dual of a BMW M4 DTMs this
year is a totally new form of teamwork. Marco Wittmann, Augusto Farfus
and Timo Glock are reserved to BMW Team RMG, while Maxime Martin,
Bruno Spengler and Tom Blomqvist are competing for BMW Team RBM. The
teams will work together as RMR for a cars driven by Timo and Tom,
that is new. The fact that all teams and drivers are on an equal
balance stays an critical partial of a DTM philosophy.”

The dual group principals, Stefan Reinhold (RMG) and Bart Mampaey
(RBM), also share shortcoming for a RMR crew. At any DTM
weekend, a garages for Glock and Blomqvist will be located between
those for a RMG and RBM teams, and any group will yield four
mechanics for array stops.
