Races 19 and 20 this weekend at Hockenheim draw the 2018 DTM season to a close where BMW M Motorsport and the BMW DTM teams are aiming to head into the winter break on a high.
Marco Wittmann (GER) and Timo Glock (GER) are still fighting for a top-five place in the driver’s standings, while Philipp Eng (AUT) and Joel Eriksson (SWE) could finish as the best rookie of the season.
This is what BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt had to say ahead of the event:
“For the grand finale of the 2018 DTM, we return to Hockenheim where we witnessed a spectacular race weekend at the start of the season. The duel between the victorious Timo Glock and Gary Paffett really was exceptional. And that’s exactly how we want to take our leave from the DTM fans for the winter break: with breath-taking duels and high emotions.
“It goes without saying that a win like at the 2017 finale would be terrific added motivation for us through the break from racing. For the time being, the Hockenheimring will be the last time that we take on our rivals at Mercedes in the DTM. This farewell makes the coming weekend all the more special.”
