BMW Motorsport director Jens Marquardt stated, “Our concept of running three teams on equal footing has proven to be ideal for our debut season. BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “The very good results are confirming our decision to continue along the lines of equality across all the teams. Establishing the fourth team is another important step as we look to guarantee that BMW remains competitive over the coming years. Our competitors are already running eight cars this season. Greater strength across the board is definitely an advantage in a fiercely-competitive series like the DTM. The new BMW Team MTEK means we are able to bridge this gap. The location on the outskirts of Munich allows BMW Motorsport to cooperate effectively with Ernest Knoors’ team. We are confident the synergies and efficiency gained will take the overall level of our DTM project to a new level.”
The new team will compliment BMW Team Schnitzer, BMW Team RBM, and BMW Team RMG. The 2013 DTM season is now poised to be even more intense and interesting.
