Allocation of six BMW DTM drivers to works teams RMG and RBM confirmed.

Munich. Six strong drivers take their place in the two BMW DTM
works teams: Following the announcement of the BMW works drivers for
the 2020 DTM season, the exact trios who will be striving for glory
with BMW Team RMG and BMW Team RBM have now been confirmed, with BMW
M Motorsport opting for continuity in both teams.


Two-time DTM champion Marco Wittmann (GER) and Timo Glock (GER)
remain in BMW Team RMG with team principal Stefan Reinhold (GER).
Their new team-mate will be BMW newcomer Lucas Auer (AUT). Philipp Eng
(AUT) and Sheldon van der Linde (RSA) continue to drive for Bart
Mampaey (BEL) and his BMW Team RBM. They are joined by Jonathan
Aberdein (RSA), who is also new to the BMW DTM squad in
For the purpose of the DTM Team competition, a joint
team will be formed from the two crews: Auer and Aberdein will score
points for BMW Team RMR and will share the same
“When allocating our drivers to the two teams, it
was important to find the right combination of continuity, change,
competition and teamwork,” said BMW Group Motorsport Director Jens
Marquardt. “The cooperation between our four established drivers and
their teams worked well last year. Each team now receives one of our
two newcomers. That gives us the desired effect. What matters here is
the output – in other words, that we form a strong team with the
drivers, BMW Team RMG and BMW Team RBM, and our engineers. All things
considered, this team will work together more closely than in previous
years. That will be one of the key factors in any sporting success
this season.”
In addition to the two BMW DTM Teams with
the six BMW works drivers, a private customer team will run a seventh
BMW M4 DTM for the first time in the 2020 DTM season. The privately
entered car of ART Grand Prix will be driven by Robert Kubica
All drivers will join their teams at the official
ITR tests from 16th to 18th March in Monza (ITA), where they will
prepare for the season ahead. The opening round of the season takes
place from 24th to 26th April in Zolder (BEL).
