DTM: Team BMW celebrates one-two result in the DTM Kart Cup.

The DTM Kart Cup took place for the first time, as part of the race weekend at the Nürburgring (GER). All three manufacturers fielded teams in the competition, consisting of one professional driver and nine fans. The Team BMW was led by BMW Motorsport Junior Nico Menzel (GER), and nine fans who won the chance to compete in a Facebook competition. The professionals in the three teams from BMW, Audi and Mercedes were non-competitive participants. The manufacturers’ teams held their own qualifying laps on Friday, and the best participants were selected to represent the brands in the grand finale on Saturday evening. The Team BMW celebrated a one-two result: Felix Hahn won the finale, while Kevin Walter claimed second place overall. They were rewarded with VIP tickets for the season finale in Hockenheim (GER), presented by event organiser ITR. BMW Motorsport also invited all participants in the Team BMW to a guided tour of the pit lane and a Meet&Greet with the BMW DTM drivers.

BMW Motorsport: Double workload for Timo Scheider

BMW driver Timo Scheider (GER), currently the best-placed privateer driver in the FIA World Rallycross Championship after a successful weekend in Lohéac (FRA), had several TV commitments to manage this week. On Thursday, he proved his sporting knowledge on Sky’s “Eine Liga für sich – Buschis Sechserkette” and chatted with other guests, such as former international footballer Ulf Kirsten (GER), TV presenter Kai Ebel (GER) and comedian Matze Knop (GER). Scheider then headed to the DTM at the Nürburgring (GER). He was working there for ARD on Sunday as co-commentator and expert pundit. “It was great fun,” said the two-time DTM champion. “I hope the viewers enjoyed it too. It was a new and exciting experience for me to be on the other side at a DTM race, having to analyse events within seconds. Thanks to everyone involved for letting me get a taste of what it is like. I’d be happy to do it again!”
