Grosjean secures BMW DTM test

Romain Grosjean joins BMW for latest pre-season test
BMW Motorsport has confirmed that GP2 title winner, and Renault F1 reserve driver, Romain Grosjean will test its new DTM car this week in Spain.

Grosjean will join F3 Euroseries racer Marco Wittmann for the test at the Monteblanco circuit, where they will join current DTM champion Martin Tomczyk as he makes his maiden appearance in BMW colours after his post-sseason switch from Audi.

Factory BMW drivers Andy Priaulx and Bruno Spengler will also be in action over the three-day test.

“This last test before the end of the year is once again very important to us,” BMW Motorsport boss Jens Marquardt said. “Our teams are already set up to function well. Our aim now is to validate the standard parts and complete as much work on the stability of our BMW M3 DTM as possible, so we can concentrate on getting the most out of the car and preparing for the start of the season in the new year..

"Romain Grosjean and Marco Wittmann will also get the chance to test for us. Both have shown what they are capable of on numerous occasions in their racing series. We are looking forward to seeing how they handle the BMW M3 DTM."
