2014 and 2016 Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters champion Marco Wittmann will now run his new BMW M4 DTM in the first new livery that BMW Motorsport has announced for the forthcoming season.

Wittmann, who continues to run with race number #11, will pilot the BMW Driving Experience-liveried M4, which also pays tribute to the Munich manufacturer’s official colours scheme from the 1970s, when their motorsport program under Jochen Neerpasch secured success.

It’s the third different livery that the 28-year-old has had since he made his début with Team RMG in 2013, having used the Red Bull livery since the beginning of the 2016 season.

“When I saw the new design of my car for the first time, I was blown away,” said Wittmann, who is currently testing at Italy’s Vallelunga circuit over the next two days.

“It is an honour for me to appear in the classic colours and to represent BMW M Motorsport on the track with this new design. Light blue, red and dark blue – for me, these three colours have been iconic since the 80s and 90s, and they are synonymous with the successful history of BMW in motor racing. I will do my best to add to this history in the 2018 DTM season.”
