Team Principal Charly Lamm’s team sported BMW colours in the DTM back in the 1980s and 1990s – and with great success. BMW Team Schnitzer’s maiden success in the DTM came in its very first season, when Roberto Ravaglia won the 1989 drivers’ title for the team from Freilassing.
In 2012 the success story continued seamlessly. 20 years after its last DTM win on 11th October 1992 in Hockenheim, BMW Team Schnitzer returned in style. Not only did Bruno Spengler win the Drivers‘ Championship, but BMW Team Schnitzer also triumphed in the team competition in its comeback year.
In the last 50 years, Schnitzer has won 17 championships with BMW – including the 1987 World Touring Car Championship, three European Touring Car Championships, and championships in Germany, England, Italy, Japan and South East Asia. BMW Team Schnitzer have triumphed a total of five times at the 24 Hours Nürburgring. Most recently in 2010, the last time a BMW won.
