BMW takes wraps off first DTM livery

BMW reveals the first livery for its assault on the 2012 DTM
BMW Motorsport has revealed the first livery that it will run when it returns to the DTM for the 2012 season.

The manufacturer will field six cars this year – for Martin Tomczyk, Bruno Spengler, Andy Priaulx, Augusto Farfus, Joey Hand and Dirk Muller – as it prepares to take on the challenge of going up against Mercedes and Audi.

The first livery, which will feature the colours of Castrol EDGE and Arai Ultimate, has now been released although there has been no comment as to who will be at the wheel.

“For many years we have put our faith in high-performance Castrol lubricants, and have celebrated countless successes together on the racetrack,” BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt said. “For that reason, everyone here at BMW Motorsport is delighted that we are able to build on this established partnership in the DTM. Castrol EDGE and Aral Ultimate are high-performance brands, which suit our DTM project perfectly.”

Thats a bit of a disappointment for me, I was expecting a modern interpretation of the classic white with the BMW M Sport stripes. Oh what could have been!
