R-Motorsport to step down from DTM
- New definition of the motorsport strategy within R-Motorsport
- Reassessment of R-Motorsport’s future motorsport program
- Dr. Florian Kamelger, Team Principal: ”Our reassessment of our motorsport program showed that we want to set new priorities for the future and that the DTM engagement would not be appropriate for us anymore.”
Niederwil – Today R-Motorsport announced that the company will step down from DTM. This is a result of a reassessment of the motorsport engagement of R-Motorsport who will announce their motorsport program it has decided on for 2020 at a later stage.
The widely noticed debut year of R-Motorsport running four Aston Martin Vantage DTM cars under the exclusive licence of Aston Martin had essentially contributed to the success of DTM during the 2019 season. This is considered by the responsible persons within the Swiss team as well as the observers of the series as a success of the project that had been established at short notice in only 90 days.
Dr. Florian Kamelger, Team Principal: ”The reassessment of our motorsport program showed that we want to set new priorities for the future and that the DTM engagement would not be appropriate for us anymore. What we have decided regarding our 2020 motorsport program we will announce at a later stage. However, I’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you particularly to Gerhard Berger and the ITR, to Dieter Gass and to Jens Marquardt for the common engagement in DTM during our debut season. Especially BMW has been an extraordinary helpful partner for us.”
