BMW takes DTM win at the finale at Hockenheim!

BMW driver Marco Wittmann pulled off a win at the DTM Finale, which was the first win of the season for them. Audi took the title win, but Wittmann now has nine DTM victories to his name and even ended the season as the best-placed (took 5th) BMW driver in the championship. Not bad- be sure to read about the race highlights below and share your thoughts with us!

The race:

Tom Blomqvist and Marco Wittmann got away well at the start and were running first and second after the opening lap. A further three BMW drivers were in the top ten for the first half of the race, namely Maxime Martin, Augusto Farfus and Timo Glock. An earlier pit stop saw Wittmann leapfrog Blomqvist and take over as the leading BMW driver. With the Drivers’ title at stake, René Rast (GER, Audi) was showing good pace. He passed Blomqvist after his pit stop, while Wittmann pulled clear at the front of the field. A few laps later, Blomqvist was hit from behind by Robert Wickens (CAN, Mercedes) and forced to retire shortly after. Wittmann comfortably defended his lead to claim his first victory of the season in his last race, for now, as DTM champion. Rast was runner-up and crowned the new champion. Maxime Martin and Augusto Farfus came home sixth and seventh to pick up more points at the end of the season. Timo Glock and Bruno Spengler were 12thand 14th.
