BMW Announces Official Return to DTM Series for 2012 | AutoGuide.com News
BMW fans, it’s time to get your blue, purple and red flags ready because your favorite German automaker has just announced its return to the DTM series for 2012. BMW and the DTM series made the announcement at this weekends’s race at the Hockenheimring, marking the return of BMW to the series after a lengthy 18 year absence. The timing couldn’t be better either with only two other automakers (Mercedes and Audi) currently competing in the notoriously fender-crunching competition.
The M3 will form the basis of BMW’s entry into the series and you can be sure BMW will field a long list of factory cars with privateer teams lining up to get a piece of the BMW race cars. We also expect BMW to bring out the very best drivers from their motorsports program.
2012… we can’t wait!
