Björn Lellmann, Head of Customer Racing at BMW M Motorsport:
“The new season in the DTM and its supporting series began last weekend. Even though things did not go perfectly for the BMW M4 GT3 at Oschersleben, there was plenty for BMW M Motorsport to be pleased about as the new BMW M4 GT4 made a superb start to the season in the very competitive ADAC GT4 Germany, chalking up four podiums in two races for Walkenhorst Motorsport and Project 1. Century Motorsport celebrated more podium finishes in the British GT, this time in the GT4 class, and fifth place in the overall standings with the BMW M4 GT3 also delivered some important championship points. The previous weekend had all been about the Nürburgring 24-hour race, where privateer BMW M Motorsport teams celebrated a total of six class wins – including FK Performance Motorsport with the new BMW M4 GT4 in the hotly contested SP10 category. At the same time, the car also triumphed in GT4 America, while the BMW M2 CS Racing was victorious in the TC America. In the Italian GT Championship, Ceccato Racing reached the podium for BMW M Motorsport. Another fantastic set of results that I am delighted with. Congratulations to all the teams and drivers!”
