Just in time for the start of the 2013 DTM season, BMW Motorsport presented the design of all eight vehicles for the title defense company to 13,000 spectators and the eight drivers at the BMW Welt in Munich. Just like ordinary BMW customers, the drivers were able to receive their new company car on the BMW Welt delivery platform.
After the presentation of the Ice Watch BMW M3 DTM by Marco Wittmann and the change from Timo Glock to the yellow Post-M3, only the design of the vehicles by Dirk Werner and Joey Hand was unclear. Werner apparently takes over the Samsung M3 that was driven by hand last year, the American competes in 2013 for the RBM team in the Exide M3.
Jens Marquardt (BMW Motorsport Director): “It was a matter close to our hearts to let our loyal fan base participate in the BMW DTM project. Certainly none of the participants has ever seen a presentation in this form before. Seeing all eight BMW M3 DTMs with their individual designs side by side, especially in front of the impressive backdrop of the BMW Welt, is something very special. The countdown to the second DTM season after our comeback is on. You can clearly see from each and every one of our drivers how great the anticipation is for the first test of strength this year. We are satisfied with our preparation so far. The fine-tuning will take place during the test drives in the coming week. And then we, as defending champions, face the tough competition in this hard-fought series with joy. I am expecting a tight season that will be extremely exciting for the spectators. This presentation today provided the perfect setting for it.
Bruno Spengler: “It was an unusual feeling to be able to receive my BMW Bank M3 DTM for the 2013 season like a BMW customer here at BMW Welt. I can absolutely understand why this moment is such a fascinating moment for so many people. I still think my matt black racing car is sensational. He brought me luck and the title in 2012. Now I am extremely motivated to be successful together with BMW Team Schnitzer this year too. "
Augusto Farfus: “I have already seen a number of events at BMW Welt. But driving out of the elevator yourself in the Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM was something special. We have a very strong team together, everyone is hot for the start of the season. "
