BMW M4 DTM – the guardian angel of BMW at DTM 2016 racing tournament will officially visit Vietnam at VIMS 2016.
The first model made its first appearance in the wind tunnel at the BMW Group’s Aero Lab on April 22 – 13 days before the opening race of the 2013 season in Hockenheim. In the summer of 2013, while continuing with aerodynamic testing, the experts in Munich turned their attention to designing new suspension parts. The new components made their first on-track outing in December 2013 – but still within the BMW M3 DTM at that point. The final parts for the chassis of the BMW M4 DTM were in production by the turn of the year, allowing the BMW teams to assemble the first models of the new car in January and February.
Three hundred days after the first test in the wind tunnel, the BMW M4 DTM took to the track for its track debut in Monteblanco on February 11, 2014. The production version of the BMW M4 Coupé provided BMW Motorsport with a perfect basis for developing the DTM racing car. Hardly surprising, given the fact that the primary goal of the BMW M GmbH engineers working on the BMW M4 Coupé was to create a robust car suitable for use on the racetrack.
With the homologation of the M4 DTM completed on March 3, 2014, the car’s race debut was at the 2014 Hockenheimring DTM round on May 4, 2014. BMW Team RMG’s Marco Wittmann scored his M4 DTM’s first victory in their M4 debut.
VIMS 2016 will take place at SECC between 26 and 30th of October, 2016.
