BMW DTM teams ready for the England round at Brands Hatch

Munich. The sixth round of the 2019 DTM season takes the BMW DTM teams to Great Britain. Race numbers eleven and twelve of the season will be held at Brands Hatch (GBR) this coming weekend (10th and 11th August). Like last year, the DTM will compete on the longer Grand Prix version of the legendary track just outside London.

After five race weekends, Marco Wittmann (GER) in third place overall with 118 points is the best-ranked BMW driver in the DTM driver standings. Right behind him is Philipp Eng (AUT) with 111 points in fourth place. In the ten races held to date, the new BMW M4 DTM with turbo drive has bagged five wins. Wittmann has taken the top spot on the podium three times, while Eng and Bruno Spengler (CAN) have each won one race. On top of this are a further five podiums.

The schedule for Brands Hatch is more compact than at the other DTM race weekends: All of the action on track has been packed into two days. First on Saturday morning is a free practice session, followed by qualifying and at 13:30 local time (14:30 CEST), the first of the two races. Sunday gets underway with the second qualifying session, before the lights go out for the second race at 13:30 local time.
