DTM 2017

An overview of the 2017 BMW Motorsport programme.
BMW Motorsport used the traditional Season Review event in Munich to announce significant information about the 2017 driver set-up and present details of the individual programmes for various racing disciplines.



DTM – consistency in the cockpit.
BMW Motorsport will be represented by two teams and six drivers in the 2017 DTM season. The race car will be the new BMW M4 DTM, which is currently completing a comprehensive test and development programme in preparation for the 18 races. Six BMW works drivers with plenty of DTM experience will be behind the wheel. Reigning DTM champion Marco Wittmann heads the selection. Tom Blomqvist, Augusto Farfus, Timo Glock, Maxime Martin and Bruno Spengler will be battling for points and wins alongside him. The six BMW drivers have racked up a total of 399 DTM starts, recording 32 wins and 34 pole positions. BMW Motorsport can boast two DTM champions in its ranks: Spengler (2012) and Wittmann (2014 and 2016). The three BMW M4 DTMs of Wittmann, Glock and Farfus will be fielded by BMW Team RMG, headed by Stefan Reinhold. Bart Mampaey and his BMW Team RBM will be responsible for the cars of Blomqvist, Martin and Spengler.
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “Our driver selection for 2017 once again includes some of the best the DTM has to offer. Of course, everyone will be chasing champion Marco Wittmann. But our five other drivers have all claimed wins and proved their quality in the DTM. This consistency in the cockpit will do us good. Experience is extremely important in the DTM.”

IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship – new faces from Europe.
In 2017, BMW Team RLL will again be represented by two BMW M6 GTLMs in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship (IWSC). Bill Auberlen and John Edwards will be the regular drivers from the USA next season. They will be joined by two new team-mates from Europe: in 2017, Auberlen will start alongside Alexander Sims, whose fine performances in this season included overall victory for the ROWE Racing team with the BMW M6 GT3 at the 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps. At the wheel of the second BMW M6 GTLM, BMW works driver Martin Tomczyk will join Edwards for the GTLM class races. The quartet will be supported by DTM drivers Augusto Farfus and Bruno Spengler, as well as Kuno Wittmer and Nick Catsburg for the endurance races on the calendar. Auberlen, Sims, Farfus and Spengler will also share driving duties in the BMW M6 GTLM Art Car for the 24 Hours of Daytona on 28th/29th January 2017, a car designed by US artist John Baldessari.
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “We are looking forward to an exciting second season with the BMW M6 GTLM in North America. Of course, our goal is to record the first win with this car. Competing with the 19th BMW Art Car in Daytona will be a real highlight to start the year off. I’d like to thank Dirk Werner and Lucas Luhr for their hard work last season - and now it’s time to welcome Alexander Sims and Martin Tomczyk. I am convinced that they will both settle in very quickly at BMW Team RLL and will soon be successful. I wish Dirk all the best in his new sporting challenges. We have been delighted to have him on board since 2010. He impressed us with his speed, his professionalism and his down-to-earth nature.”

GT and endurance races – the next chapter in a success story.
In 2017, BMW Team Schnitzer will enhance an already strong BMW set-up in international GT and endurance racing. The team headed by Charly Lamm will compete in races alongside ROWE Racing, winners of the 24-hour race in Spa-Francorchamps, and Schubert Motorsport, and will be doing their best to record the 20th overall win for BMW in the classic 24-hour race at the Nürburgring. BMW Team Schnitzer is also scheduled to compete with the BMW M6 GT3 at the ADAC GT Masters. The three teams will also represent BMW at many other GT events – such as the VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring (VLN) or the Blancpain GT Series. Among others, former BMW Motorsport Junior Jesse Krohn will compete in a BMW M6 GT3 in the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, alongside the works drivers active in the DTM.
BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt: “The BMW M6 GT3 made a successful all-round debut in 2016. We are aiming for more wins and titles next season with our top model in customer racing. The three teams, ROWE Racing, Schubert Motorsport and BMW Team Schnitzer all have a special role to play and will compete with this car in various series. After winning in Spa in 2016, we now want to continue our long-running success story on the Nordschleife. As far as teams and drivers are concerned, we are ideally equipped to do this.”

2017 DTM CARS: MORE POWER AND LESS DOWNFORCE







To let the skills of the drivers gain even more importance, the technical regulations for the 2017 season were revised in crucial areas. So, the horsepower output of the new cars was increased while the aerodynamics were restricted at the same time. This means that driving this year’s cars is a bigger challenge and the drivers have to work even harder.

The technology of the 2017 DTM cars differs from the one of its predecessors in several significant areas:

The engine

In 2017, the four-litre V8 engines of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-AMG will produce – for the first time – more than 500bhp. The increased horsepower output mainly was achieved by bigger intake-system air restrictors. The engines are equipped with one air restrictor per cylinder bench and their diameter has been increased from 28 to 29 millimetres. Furthermore, the new regulations allow for enhancement in special intake-system areas special areas to optimise the engine’s performance even more. Nonetheless, maximum longevity still represents a top priority of the DTM engines’ design. Blown engines are extremely rare in DTM and usually, the engines survive the entire season. During the course of the season, cost-intensive engine revisions aren’t allowed in DTM as the sealed engines only may be subjected to services in this period of time, according to the regulations.

Aerodynamics

The guidelines of the new regulations comprise a reduction of the aerodynamics. To achieve this goal, the geometry of the front splitter, underbody and rear diffuser was changed and the ride height was increased.

Meanwhile, the rear wing and the DRS (Drag Reduction System) make for a major and visible difference. The DRS allows the driver to reduce his vehicle’s drag for a short time, thus increasing its top speed. In the past this made for many battles and overtaking manoeuvres. Other than last year’s rear wing that could be hinged down completely, only the so-called Guerney Flap, the upper of two fins of the rear wing, is flapped down what even increases the DRS efficiency.

The tyres

Combined with the new Hankook tyres that provide more grip for a short period of time but force the drivers to cope with a higher performance decrease over the distance, these changes make for a handling of the new DTM cars that is clearly more demanding for the drivers than it was in the past.

New control components

The body design of this year’s DTM touring cars of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-AMG complies with the latest generation of their production brethren. To restrict the cost-intensive high-tech developments, the new regulations feature clearly more areas for jointly developed control components. The development of these components is controlled by the umbrella organisation ITR in close cooperation with the manufacturers’ engineers. For 2017, the range of control parts was extended – inter alia – by components for the suspension area. Furthermore, the DTM control wheel also will make its debut. From this year, all the 18 cars will race on ATS wheels while every manufacturer could opt for the wheel it preferred, in the past.

Drivers feel pleasant anticipation

After the first tests for the 2017 season, the drivers proved to be really happy with their new cars. “The changes made on the car are clearly noticeable – particularly the combination of less aero, more power and the new tyres,” said Mattias Ekström, the senior driver on the DTM grid, representative of all the DTM drivers. “As I see it we are heading in the right direction and I think we are going to have a lot of fun, this year.”

The testing was continued this week at Vallelunga, Italy from 14th to 16th March, and many of the components were subjected to acid tests for the coming season.

In addition to the alterations on the technical regulations, those responsible also intensely work on the sporting regulations. Next week ITR is going to inform on the planned changes for the coming season that will be kicked off at Hockenheim from 05th to 07th May.

SECOND ROUND OF DTM TESTS THIS WEEK AT VALLELUNGA







The second round of DTM tests is on. From Tuesday to Thursday (14th to 16th March), Audi, BMW and Mercedes-AMG continue their preparations for the coming season at Vallelunga.

Eight DTM drivers are involved in the three days of testing at the 4,085-kilomrtre circuit located 30 kilometre north Italy’s capital, Rome. Mattias Ekström and Jamie Green are testing for Audi, Tom Blomqvist and Maxime Martin will alternate in the cockpit for BMW and Mercedes-AMG travelled to Italy with four drivers: Lucas Auer, Edoardo Mortara, Gary Paffett and Robert Wickens.

Since 01st March, the new Audi RS 5 DTM and the enhanced versions of last year’s BMW M4 DTM and Mercedes-AMG C63 DTM have been homologated and consequently, the development of the cars has virtually been frozen. Now the teams and drivers first of all have to familiarise themselves with the new vehicles and complete as many laps as possible to gather experience.

The Vallelunga tests are the second step on the way to preparing for the season kick-off at Hockenheim (05th to 07th May). From 21 to 23rd February the DTM fraternity tested at Portimão, Portugal and from 03rd to 06th April, Hockenheim will be the venue of the final tests. On all the four days of testing at the Southern German racetrack the grandstand will be opened for the fans and the admission will be free.

A detailed look at the BMW M4 DTM for the 2017 season.
A month ahead of the first race of the year in Hockenheim, BMW Motorsport is very well prepared for the 2017 DTM.



While the drivers and teams can call on a wealth of experience as they go into the sixth season since BMW’s return to the fiercely-competitive touring car series, the car is a newcomer: BMW Motorsport lines up this year with the BMW M4 DTM, which has been developed according to the new technical regulations.

With four titles in three years: the vehicle designation BMW M4 DTM is synonymous with great success. Marco Wittmann won the Drivers’ title with this car in both 2014 and 2016. BMW Team RMG also picked up the Teams’ title in 2014, while BMW won the Manufacturers’ Championship in 2015. This year sees the dawn of a new era. In the light of the new regulations, the BMW M4 DTM has been given a workover and undergone significant development. The BMW M4 DTM now generates over 500 hp of engine power, while the aerodynamics have also been the subject of extensive modifications. Innovative technology was used when manufacturing the components.

“We are very much looking forward to the new DTM season. The many changes are primarily aimed at one thing: even more spectacle for fans at the circuit and watching on screen,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “I really like the new, more powerful cars. The drivers at the wheel will make even more of a difference in the future, and fans will get even closer to the teams and drivers at the circuit. This combination promises to produce a thrilling season in 2017. Our engineers have worked hard over the past few months to develop a host of detailed new solutions for the BMW M4 DTM, based on the DTM regulations for the 2017 season. I am very proud of this team effort. One of my personal highlights is the new look of the BMW M4 DTM. The blue crosses are a design element that originates from the iconic BMW 3.0 CSL of the 1970s. Any DTM fan will also recognise the blue crosses from the legendary BMW M3 DTM in the 1980s, when they were still stuck on. In 2017, we do this digitally – as is also the case, for example, with the new BMW 7 Series. We are looking forward to the first race weekend in Hockenheim.”

Wind of Change.
The regulations required the BMW Motorsport engineers to take a new approach to aerodynamics when developing the BMW M4 DTM. A shorter diffusor and the fact that the ride height has been increased in line with regulations, reduce downforce and ‘dirty air’. The flow topology around the car was completely revised. The front bumper now has a completely new shape and forms the starting point for the flow of the air around the car. The wing mirrors will have a more conventional design again in 2017 according to the regulations. Among the many clearly visible modifications are the even more prominent contouring of the side channel, the vent ducts on the rear wheel arches, which are being used for the first time, and the incredibly detailed design of the rear of the car.

The rear wing is also one of the more easily recognisable changes to the 2017 DTM cars. The Drag Reduction System (DRS) has been modified. Up until now, the rear wing consisted of just one profile and was lowered as one part when DRS was triggered. The rear wing of the new BMW M4 DTM is made up of two profiles, with the just the top profile tilting upwards when DRS is activated. Unlike before, the end plates no longer move with the wing. The range of adjustment for the system is up to 40 degrees for 2017, making it more efficient than last year.

The front splitter and underbody of the DTM cars are standard components, in accordance with the new regulations. The same goes for the floor panel, which is five millimetres thicker than before. The rear diffusor also has a completely new shape and is shorter and flatter than that of the previous model.

Over the course of the aerodynamic development of the new BMW M4 DTM in the BMW Group’s Aero Lab, the engineers had to be even more efficient than usual: they had just 50 days in which to test the new model in the wind tunnel and to optimise it. As a result, CFD calculations, simulations and the rapid prototyping of components from wind tunnel models played a more significant role.

Even more power.
When it comes to the engine, the DTM regulations for the 2017 season allow a larger diameter for the air restrictors, through which the engine draws in its combustion air. Having enlarged the air restrictors from 2 x 28 millimetres to 2 x 29 millimetres, the charge cycle was adapted accordingly. This increased the engine performance by about 25 hp to over 500 hp. Because the engine, now known as the P66/1, takes more cooling, due to the increased performance, the cooling air intakes towards the front of the car were also modified. As another consequence of the greater power, even more powerful and durable carbon-fibre brake disks are also used in the DTM in 2017.

In its final spec, the BMW V8 engine consists of almost 800 different components. In total, the powerhouse is made up of almost 4,000 individual parts. When designing the DTM power unit, BMW took full advantage of the technological know-how of the BMW Group. The high-tech foundry at the BMW plant in Landshut contributed the large castings, such as cylinder heads and crankcases. The processing of the castings, their coating, and any necessary thermal treatment, was performed by the appropriate specialist departments in Munich.

BMW Power continues to be transferred to the track via a six-speed, sequential racing transmission, which is operated pneumatically via shift paddles on the steering wheel. It has eleven transmission ratios, which allow the engineers and drivers to react to the circuit and engine characteristics when setting-up the car.

Innovative technology for even greater efficiency.
The engine mount is a complex structural component, which is placed under great strain, and connects the engine frame to the engine. It was manufactured specifically for the DTM car using an additive 3D printing procedure and optimised using topology.

BMW Motorsport engineers and their colleagues from BMW production development have been regarded as pioneers in the field of additive manufacturing for decades. Together, they are forging ahead with this future-oriented manufacturing technology, increasing both the efficiency and speed of the production of motorsport components. Since 2015, BMW Motorsport has used a water pump wheel made on a 3D printer in its DTM engines. The high-precision component, which is subject to high stresses, consists of an aluminium alloy and has proven its worth in the tough motorsport environment.

The chassis for the 2017 DTM season consists of many standard parts: shock absorbers, anti-roll bar, wishbone, wheel mounts, wheel hubs and wheel nuts are now prescribed as standard. However, the BMW Motorsport engineers had free rein when it came to the side springs and the third element of the front axle, as well as the configuration and layout of the standard parts.

The carbon-fibre monocoque is again instrumental in ensuring the safety of the drivers in the new BMW M4 DTM. With an integrated tank, steel roll cage, and additional crash elements, it provides effective protection for the driver in case of an accident.

New conditions, lap by lap.
The interaction between the chassis and the 2017 generation of Hankook race tyre was also of great importance. With a new design and new compound, the DTM’s tyre partner is adding another exciting element to the coming season. The new dry tyre for the DTM – the Ventus Race – will generate greater grip than its predecessor when in good condition. In contrast, however, it will degrade faster and more dramatically, depending on the driving style. This is what the car manufacturers and organisers had intended, and it will have a significant effect on lap times.

Finally, new, characteristic LED front lights round off the appearance of the 2017 model. They literally give the car a “dynamic look”. The rear lights have also been redesigned.

Marco Wittmann discusses the BMW M4 DTM on video.
During the DTM tests in Hockenheim, DTM champion Marco Wittmann took time out to explain the most important modifications to his Red Bull BMW M4 DTM. You can find the video here: https://youtu.be/oLqhf0lxeLw.

A compact look at the key modifications to the BMW M4 DTM.

Front:
Front lights: Blue crosses are a throwback to iconic BMW models on the track and on the road – from the BMW 3.0 CSL and the first-generation BMW M3 in the DTM to the current BMW 7 Series.

BMW P66 /1 engine: Increasing the diameter of the air restrictors has boosted engine power to over 500 hp. As a consequence, further modifications were made.

Flicks: Simpler design of aerodynamic attachments, in accordance with regulations.

Bumper: Re-designed front end including front splitter for efficient airflow, based on changes to aerodynamics, as specified in the regulations.

Wing mirrors: Reduced aerodynamics in the wing mirror area, in accordance with regulations.

Side:
Tyres: New Hankook tyre construction and compound. Generates greater grip than its predecessor when in good condition. In contrast, however, it will degrade faster and more dramatically, depending on the driving style. This is what the car manufacturers and organisers had intended, and it will have a significant effect on lap times.

Chassis: A number of components of the chassis and brakes have been standardised, as have the wheel rims. However, the suspension kinematics as well as the configuration of the dampers and springs can still be adjusted individually.

Floor panel: The wooden floor panel is five millimetres thicker, in accordance with regulations. This leads to a greater ride height, and consequently to less downforce.

Side channel: As at the front and rear of the car, the air flow has also been modified in the side channel.
Rear:
Rear wing: The DRS has been modified. The 2017 rear wing consists of two parts, with the upper part tilting upwards when DRS is operated. The system is generally more efficient.

Diffusor: The rear diffusor on the new BMW M4 DTM is shorter and flatter
than that of its predecessor, in order to comply with new regulations. As such, it generates less downforce.

Rear lights: Design of rear lights in keeping with the design update of the new BMW M4 Coupé.

Rear apron: Complete overhaul of the rear apron and adjustment to suit modified flow topology – for example, due to new rear diffusor.

The countdown is on.
This week, BMW Motorsport and the teams concluded preparations for the new season with four days of testing at the Hockenheimring, the location of the first two DTM races of the year on 6th and 7th May 2017.



All six BMW DTM drivers were in action between Monday and Thursday, gathering experience with the newly-developed BMW M4 DTM. The six drivers rounded off the week with numerous interviews and photo shoots during the DTM Media Day.
In total, the two BMW teams RMG and RBM completed 880 laps of the 4.574 kilometre-long Hockenheimring circuit. DTM champion Marco Wittmann, Augusto Farfus, Tom Blomqvist, Timo Glock, Maxime Martin and Bruno Spengler all had a chance to get behind the wheel of the cars that deliver over 500 HP. The teams also used the tests to get used to the new procedures for pit stops. The combined “RMR” car crew also practised working together at the race track.
“The stage is set for a great DTM season,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “You could sense a real upbeat mood at today’s Media Day in Hockenheim. It was a fantastic feeling. Just like the fans, we are really looking forward to the season finally starting. From a competition point of view, we have learned a lot again on this final stretch of the season preparation. Every lap of the Hockenheimring is extremely useful to help us prepare perfectly for the curtain raiser. We did not do as much driving as we had hoped but tests are there to gather experience. I am confident that the new technical regulations and the changes that have been made to the sporting regulations will ensure that we enjoy 18 thrilling races.”
Wittmann starts the season as defending champion and is counting the days until the first race. “It was a long winter break - but the break is not boring if you are the champion. These final tests were really important. It is always better to be able to sort out any difficulties with the new car during preparation, instead of on the first race day. And it is great to conclude the test by setting the fastest lap time on the final afternoon. So, I am really optimistic for the start of the season. The anticipation is growing with every passing day.”

NO MORE SECRETS: DTM OPENS THE GARAGES FOR THE FANS



DTM stands for extremely close motor racing at the highest level. On the track, the drivers and teams racing for Audi, BMW and Mercedes-AMG fight for every thousandth of a second. And when the cars aren’t in action, the work continues in the pit lane or, more precisely, in the garages. Here, the mechanics work on the car and refine the set-up while the drivers and their engineers discuss the approach and tactics for the next outing. The garages are not only a refugium but nearly a sanctuary. And exactly here, the fans on site will be provided direct insight, in the future.

The DTM fans can look forward to a spectacular innovation: from the beginning of the 2017 season they will have the opportunity to get a close view of the hustle in the garages. Three garages, one per manufacturer, will be opened for the fans, thus providing the visitors a glance into the most important zone of the teams. In the Pit-View, the holders of a paddock ticket will be granted access to a garage that will allow him to watch the work in the two adjacent garages – and this also applies to most of the DTM sessions. Furthermore, the visitors also will have a clear view of the pit lane. With Pit-View, DTM is setting new standards and once again leads the way – as usual – when it comes to fan-friendliness and closeness. In no other professional motor-racing series at a similar level the fans have the chance of witnessing the fascination of motor racing at such a close range.

“DTM always has been standing out for its fascinating cars, the enthralling sport and the closeness to the fans,” ITR board member Florian Zitzlsperger says. “That’s something we want to build on and extend, in the future, and we are making a first step on the way to doing so with Pit-View. Only the mechanics involved and the team-members will get closer to the action.”

Fan village, special pit walk and backstage activities

In addition to Pit-View, DTM also extends its already well-known fan attractions. In the fan village, the programme on the stage will entertain the crowds while food trucks will cater for them. And those interested in an even more intense DTM experience can take part in the special pit walks on Saturday and Sunday morning where they can witness the pit-stop practice of the teams at close range. In addition to the well-known pit walks on the two race days, you now also can walk through the pit-lane for one hour on Saturday evening. To make this possible, the gates will be opened for one hour. Furthermore, the paddock ticket will once again be upgraded at certain racetracks: wherever it’s possible, a part of the roof of the pit building will be opened to offer a clear view of the pits from above. Via the official website, DTM.com, the fans can register for backstage activities and can take part in guided tours, track walks and meet & greets.

The 2017 DTM season will traditionally be kicked off at the Hockenheimring Baden-Württemberg – from 5th to 7th May. Tickets for this and the other eight race meetings can be purchased via the official website, DTM.com, and by phone via the ticket hotline, +49 (0) 1806 456 456.

BMW INTRODUCES RACE TEAMS FOR 2017



Tom Blomqvist and Timo Glock

After Audi and Mercedes-AMG, BMW now also announced their race teams for the season beginning on 05th May at Hockenheim. Two BMW M4 DTM racers will be entered by BMW Team RMG and another two by BMW Team RBM. A surprise is the race crew for the other two BMW DTM racers: they will be taken care of by a mixed crew, consisting of engineers and mechanics of both BMW teams. This squad will operate under the name Reinhold Mampaey Racing, shortly ‘RMR’.

BMW Team RMG will enter the vehicles for reigning DTM Champion Marco Wittmann, Augusto Farfus and Timo Glock while BMW Team RBM will be responsible for the cars of Maxime Martin, Bruno Spengler – the most experienced DTM driver in the BMW camp – and Tom Blomqvist. In the meantime, the two BMW M4 DTM racers of Glock and Blomqvist will be attended to by the mixed crew.

“Cooperating perfectly as a squad is absolutely essential, in motor racing,” says BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. But the fact that the crews of RMG and RBM cooperate when it comes to attending to two of our BMW M4 DTM vehicles is a completely new kind of teamwork. It’s new that the two teams cooperate as RMR when it comes to working on the cars of Timo and Tom.

At the same time, it goes without saying that all our teams and drivers once again will have absolutely equal rights. This is and remains a significant part of our DTM philosophy.”

Responsible for the RMR crew will be the two Team Principals, Stefan Reinhold (RMG) and Bart Mampaey (RBM), in equal measure. On every DTM race weekend, the garages of Glock and Blomqvist will be placed between those of RMG and RBM and for every pit stop, each of the two teams will make available four mechanics.
