Munich. BMW Motorsport is approaching the 2019 DTM season with a new, strong partner. As part of a long-term collaboration agreement, Schaeffler AG, from Herzogenaurach (GER), will become a new BMW M Motorsport Premium Partner in the DTM. The Schaeffler BMW M4 DTM will compete in all 18 races this year, sporting the global automotive and industrial supplier’s striking green and white colour scheme. Two-time DTM champion Marco Wittmann (GER) will be at the wheel of the 600 HP race car entered by BMW Team RMG.
 
Schaeffler AG is already making a decisive contribution to ‘Mobility for Tomorrow’ now with its high-precision components and systems in engine, transmission, and chassis applications, in addition to rolling and plain bearing solutions for a large number of industrial applications. Since its beginnings, the Schaeffler company has been characterised by groundbreaking innovations and global customer orientation.
 
“Just like us, Schaeffler is a real global player in terms of automobiles and motorsport. This is a perfect combination,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “It is always important to work with our partners and establish points of connection for comprehensive collaboration that goes beyond simple branding. That is certainly the case with Schaeffler. The two companies already enjoy a very close relationship in production and we are now extending this to the racetrack.”
 
Matthias Zink, CEO Automotive OEM at Schaeffler, explains: “Successful involvement in a range of race series has had great significance for Schaeffler for many years – and the new collaboration with BMW Motorsport in the DTM allows us to broaden our market coverage. The DTM is, and remains, a strong platform with good prospects for the future. Based on decades of trusting collaboration, we are looking forward to starting a new era of involvement in this series together with BMW.”
 
The 2019 DTM season consists of 18 races over nine weekends, starting on 4th May at Hockenheim (GER). The series then visits Zolder (BEL), Misano (ITA), the Norisring (GER), Assen (NED), Brands Hatch (GBR), the Lausitzring (GER) and the Nürburgring (GER), before returning to Hockenheim for the grand finale on 5th/6th October.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here: https://www.dat.de/co2/.
