DTM article about BMW Team Schnitzer and their 50 year history


When talking about BMW and motor racing, mentioning the name Schnitzer is a must: for more than 50 years, now, Schnitzer have been racing with and for BMW and in these five decades, they won races and titles galore. So, it goes without saying that Schnitzer also have been involved since BMW made their works comeback in DTM.

Two names are standing for the success of BMW Team Schnitzer: Schnitzer and Lamm. Back in 1963, the brothers Josef and Herbert Schnitzer bought a car that had been damaged in an accident to use it in motor racing. Motorsport-Team Schnitzer was born. Just a few years later, the half-brothers of the Schnitzers, Karl “ called Charly “ and Dieter Lamm joined the team. Together, the quartet helped the team to become more and more successful. Since Josef Schnitzer (1978) and Dieter Lamm (2014) passed away, Herbert Schnitzer and Charly Lamm are the men at the helm of the squad.

The team's DTM history dates back to the 1980s and 1990s. And even in the early years of the series that is the most successful international touring-car series, today, the squad around Charly Lamm represented the BMW colours “ and celebrated numerous successes while doing so by securing 17 race wins and 8 pole positions as well as setting 17 fastest race laps. But in the debut season, in 1989, they made for an even bigger triumph, with Italian Roberto Ravaglia winning the DTM Drivers Championship for the Schnitzer squad.

20 years after their last DTM win so far, secured on 11th October, 1992 at Hockenheim, BMW Team Schnitzer made for a true sensation: in the comeback season, 2012, Bruno Spengler won the drivers championship and as the icing on the cake, Charly Lamm's team also prevailed in the team championship.

Altogether, Schnitzer won 17 championships with BMW, in the past 50 years “ such as the 1987 World Touring Car Championship, three European Touring Car Championship titles and championships in Germany, the UK, Italy, Japan and South-East Asia.

In 2015, Martin Tomczyk und Antonio Felixx da Costa will contest the DTM season for BMW Team Schnitzer.

Dress rehearsal.
Just a few weeks before the new DTM season gets underway in Hockenheim on the first weekend of May, the BMW teams have the opportunity to put the final touches to their BMW M4 DTM




From 13th to 16th April, the Motorsport Arena Oschersleben will host an official ITR test. The fans are also in for a treat. They can watch the drivers and teams live as they go about their work on each of the test days. The paddock and grandstands at the Motorsport Arena will be open to spectators on all four days. The roll-out will take place between 17:00 and 18:00 on Monday 13th April. The BMW teams will then complete an intense programme of testing from 09:00 to 13:00 on the three following days.

BMW Motorsport Car Launch in Nürnberg.
Racing action on unusual terrain: that is what guests and fans can look forward to on 26th April, when Nürnberg (DE) hosts the official 2015 BMW Motorsport Car Launch.

(BMW Motorsport April 2 2015)



A week before the start of the DTM season, BMW Motorsport is offering an exclusive insight into its extensive programme for the 2015 season on the premises of the BMW Dealership Nürnberg.

Among the highlights are the same eight BMW M4 DTM racing cars with which BMW is out to add new chapters to its success story in the DTM in 2015. Each DTM driver will be on hand to unveil his own car for the season, including local favourite Marco Wittmann. It is set to be a genuine home outing for the reigning DTM champion, who was born and lives just a few kilometres away in Fürth. However, the DTM squad are not the only ones to be presented to the public in Nürnberg. The same goes for renowned drivers from the rest of BMW Motorsport’s racing programme, including Dirk Werner and Lucas Luhr from the United SportsCar Championship (USCC), 2014 BMW Motorsport Junior Jesse Krohn, and BMW works driver and BMW brand ambassador Alessandro Zanardi.

The driving activities on the specially created track are bound to send a shiver down the spine of fans on site: as well as two BMW M4 DTM racing cars, the BMW Z4 GT3 and BMW M235i Racing will also complete a series of demo drives. With a bit of luck, visitors may even take to the track themselves: taxi rides in a BMW M3 GT2 or historic BMW M3 from the 1980s with one of the DTM stars can be won at the BMW Motorsport Car Launch. An autograph session with the BMW DTM drivers rounds off the exciting programme.
