Munich. A well-known driver will take his place at the wheel of the BMW M4 DTM at next week’s 2019 DTM Young Driver Tests at Jerez de la Frontera (ESP), namely Robert Kubica (POL). The 34-year-old is closely associated with BMW, having spent his first years in Formula 1, from 2006 to 2009, with the BMW Sauber F1 Team. Kubica now returns to BMW Motorsport to test a DTM race car.

 

As well as Kubica, Nick Yelloly (GBR) will also attend the Jerez de la Frontera test for BMW Motorsport. The 29-year-old became a BMW works driver this season and claimed his first title in the China GT Championship at the wheel of a BMW M6 GT3 run by FIST-Team AAI.

 

“We are delighted to offer the opportunity to Robert Kubica to take part in the Jerez test,” said BMW Group Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “Robert is a big name on the international motor racing scene, with a lot of experience in high-class series like Formula 1. We are now very intrigued to see how he gets on in his test at the wheel of a touring car – our BMW M4 DTM. Nick Yelloly also more than deserves his Jerez outing after his title win in China.”

 

“I would like to thank BMW Motorsport for the opportunity to test at Jerez with the BMW M4 DTM,” said Kubica. “I am already very much looking forward to the test and to getting to know the DTM race car with its turbo engine. I can well imagine a future in the DTM. I am looking for a new challenge, and the DTM is certainly just that. The series has a top-class field and the standard of driving is extremely high. However, we must first wait and see how I get on at the test.”

 

“I’m really looking forward to take it to the track in the BMW M4 DTM again,” said Yelloly. “I know last year’s car from a previous test and I have to say that it is just such a great race car. But I haven’t driven the new BMW M4 DTM with turbo-engine yet and I’m really looking forward to trying out the new generation of DTM car with the extra turbo power. I’m very grateful to BMW Motorsport for giving me the opportunity and can’t wait to get behind the wheel.”

 

The test at Jerez de la Frontera takes place from 10th to 13th December.

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/.
