When it came to the 2015 season, DTM fans enjoyed even more race action. This DTM season comprised of nine weekends, over the course of which fans were treated to 18 episodes of thrilling race action. For the first time since 2000, two races were held on each weekend. The season kicked off at the Hockenheimring on the first weekend in May. The calendar featured three foreign meetings in Zandvoort, Spielberg and Moscow, which have proven to be extremely popular in recent years. Hockenheim will host the season finale from 16th to 18th October.
In 2012, BMW Motorsport celebrated a sensational DTM comeback winning three titles. In 2013, they defended the title in the Manufacturers’ Championship.
In 2014, the BMW M4 DTM started the new era with another title victory. It was Marco Wittmann who stepped into the limelight last season: The BMW Team RMG driver wrapped up the title in the Drivers’ Championship in the eighth round of the ten-race season at the Lausitzring. Sixth place was sufficient for the then 24-year-old, at the wheel of the Ice-Watch BMW M4 DTM, to ensure he can no longer be caught by his rivals.
