DTM Class 1 BMW M4 DTM hits the “virtual” racetrack for the first time.

11.11.2018: The first roll-out has already been completed successfully and BMW M Motorsports in Munich is continuing to work hard on further development of the BMW M4 DTM, which is modified in accordance with Class

The first roll-out has already been completed successfully and BMW M Motorsports in Munich is continuing to work hard on further development of the BMW M4 DTM, which is modified in accordance with Class 1 regulations.




The DTM car for the 2019 season has now made its first appearance on a racetrack – albeit a virtual track. Last week, BMW DTM driver Marco Wittmann (GER) completed a simulator test with the Class 1 BMW M4 DTM.




The two-time DTM champion was impressed by the new generation of the race car. “It was a very cool experience,” said Wittmann. “You can clearly feel that the car has considerably more power than before.



We can all look forward to that – spectators and us drivers alike. The higher performance will alter our driving style, as we will be approaching corners significantly faster, so the braking points will come sooner.



We must obviously wait to see how it is in reality, as this was just the first drive in the simulator. However, you can gain an initial impression and I think that the Class 1 regulations will make for quite a show next year. I am already really looking forward to actually driving the new car in the tests.”




The first ITR test ahead of the 2019 season will take place from 11th to 14th November 2018 at Estoril (POR).
