Ralf Schumacher is confirmed for 2012, i do think Coulthard will be there as well.

i agree with Jorg, Dirk Muller i think will be defending his GT. René Rast tested for BMW and i think might get a drive.

Absolutely, Ralf and Coulthard have both been confirmed for 2012. But I think their seats are being wasted, in particular with Ralf, try finding me a more vanilla and snoozy driver than him.

Rene Rast has been brilliant in Porsche Supercup, he needs a step up in competition and machinery – DTM would be a nice progression.

Joey Hand is going to drive for BMW in DTM next year: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/96754

It's cool to have an American racing in DTM, that hasn't happened for a long time. Having won in Grand-Am and ALMS with
BMW, Joey can always rely on BMW Power to propel him forward.

Sounds good Joey is good driver. did a mega job in ALMS.


Quote :
Hand's signing means five of BMW's six seats have now been taken, with existing factory GT drivers Andy Priaulx and Augusto Farfus having been joined by reigning DTM champion Martin Tomczyk, and long-time Mercedes driver Bruno Spengler.

so one seat left at BMW hmmmm

I really like BMW's line-up, it’s very strong. What I like most is the mix of nationalities; it would have been so easy to mainly pick Germans. But the mix is great.

I think so, it is a shame because I was hoping for at least 20 cars. I think in the future there is potential for that. I would think that Audi's and Mercedes-Benz' line-ups would be static, except for a few drivers being dropped.

I think so, this year they will probably limited in the number of cars they can produce. Development for them will be more important than supplying parts to cover loads of M3's.

I don’t exactly like that livery, because BMW Motorsport machinery in Alpine White just looks so right. But, it would be pretty hard to distinguish 6 BMW M3’s that are all painted in the same colour. At least with this, you’ll know which driver is behind the wheel – whoever drives the Castrol car happens to be.

Plus, Castrol Edge is one of the leading lubricant brands. For ultimate engine wear protection and performance, Castrol Edge is an outstanding product. Along with Mobil 1, Castrol Edge is a leading motor oil brand. BMW has been with Castrol for as long as I can remember – it’s been a great partnership.

Nice video. The engines are unchanged, so they still make that glorious growl.

If the picture matches the article, it would appear that Bruno Spengler will be driving a Deutsche Post sponsored BMW M3 Coupe: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/97467

As a traditionalist, only an Alpine White BMW Motorsport vehicle looks truly correct.

I'm sure I read somewhere that all 3 marques are each running a Deutsche Post-liveried car.

Could be the case, because Deutsche Post is still running with David Coulthard this season in the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class Coupe.

Audi has dumped Oliver Jarvis: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/97668

This cannot be serious, are they seriously suggesting that Rahel Frey is faster than Jarvis? Big mistake by Skoda.
