For that reason, everyone here at BMW Motorsport is delighted that we are able to build on this established partnership in the DTM. Castrol EDGE is a high-performance brand, which suits our DTM project perfectly.”

Castrol EDGE will deliver maximum engine performance and will give the team the strength to perform at the highest level.”
“Together with our long-term partner, BMW Motorsport, we are looking forward to the challenges ahead and will do everything in our power to ensure that BMW is able to triumph in the DTM as they have done in the past.”
