Munich. In the 2020 DTM season, BMW M Motorsport can again count on the loyalty and support of its long-term partners. Accordingly, five of the six works BMW M4 DTM will compete in the well-known and familiar colours of the Premium Partners Shell, BMW Bank, CATL, Schaeffler and ZF. A new Premium Partner on board is iQOO with the iQOO BMW M4 DTM. In addition, there are the Offical Partners and Official Suppliers of BMW M Motorsport, who also continue their collaboration.
“We are very happy to have our strong partners at our side, even in
difficult times like these,” said BMW Group Motorsport Director Jens
Marquardt. “The corona pandemic also put the brakes on the DTM, and
when the season can finally start, it will be under different
conditions than we are used to. That is why we are all the more
grateful for the loyalty and ongoing support of our partners. It shows
once again that we are one team, we stand together and we fight
together for success. The modified DTM calendar makes us look forward
to the start of the season even more. Together with our partners, we
are ready to give everything in the 2020 season.”
Shell has been Premium Technology Partner since 2015, which sees them enter their sixth joint DTM season with BMW M Motorsport. Like last year, Sheldon van der Linde (RSA) will take the wheel of the Shell BMW M4 DTM. BMW Bank have been a Premium Partner right from the word go. In their ninth DTM season since 2012, one of the new additions to the BMW squad of drivers, Lucas Auer (AUT), will take the wheel of the BMW Bank M4 DTM. The second new addition, Jonathan Aberdein (RSA), will race in the CATL BMW M4 DTM.
Two-time DTM champion Marco Wittmann (GER) will stay true to his Schaeffler BMW M4 DTM, and Philipp Eng (AUT) to his ZF BMW M4 DTM. Wittmann and Eng were the most successful BMW DTM drivers in the 2019 season. They clocked up five season wins between them. BMW M Motorsport is also delighted to welcome a new Premium Partner on board; Timo Glock (GER) will now take to the track in the iQOO BMW M4 DTM.
