[Auto House Race] This year's DTM German Touring Car Masters is coming to an end, and everyone is increasingly looking forward to BMW joining next year. Earlier this month, BMW, together with Mercedes-Benz and Audi, tested next year's new car at Lauchitz and Hungarian Circuit. In order to accumulate more data, in the two-round test, BMW will not only send out next year's official drivers Plyox and Farfors, but also two BMW drivers from the American Le Mans Series to participate.

BMW was satisfied with the test in Lauchitz. The drivers focused on the reliability test and tried different tire formulas. BMW GT driver Jörg-Müller said that the feedback from the M3 DTM is very good, the steering performance is outstanding, and a lot of downforce can be felt in high-speed corners.

BMW's test project in Hungarian Groning focused on tires, vehicle tuning and long-distance test runs. In particular, the cooperation between racing cars and tires is a key factor in determining competitiveness, which is also a large part of BMW's test plan. In Hungarian, all BMW cars did not show any failures in the test, and the stability was satisfactory.
