At last! The new design for the BMW M6 GT3, which Marco Wittmann will be driving in the 2021 DTM season, has officially been revealed.
Wittmann appeared with his new Green Machine, sporting the colours of Shell alongside those of Schaeffler, on Tuesday and Wednesday during official DTM testing at the Lausitzring as he prepared for the Monza season-opener on 19th/20th June with the Walkenhorst Motorsport team.
“I am pleased with testing overall,” said Wittmann. “The team and I made great use of the days to get to know one another better and improve coordination of all the processes. Walkenhorst Motorsport is also still getting used to the DTM, a competition that the team will be appearing in for the first time in 2021. We have completed a comprehensive programme of testing, where the focus was not on lap times. The balance of performance for the various GT3 cars will only be determined just before the season-opener at Monza.”
Visually, the new Green Machine was certainly an eye-catcher. “It was so much fun to drive those first laps with the new Green Machine now that the design has been finalised,” said Wittmann. “The combination of Schaeffler and Shell colours looks brilliant. Now we want to do well this season, of course, and record as many highlights as possible in the farewell year for the BMW M6 GT3.”
Wittmann will remain in the BMW M6 GT3 this weekend as he appears in the 6-hour qualification race for the 24h Nürburgring. He will be sharing driving duties in the ROWE Racing car with Connor De Phillippi, Martin Tomczyk and Sheldon van der Linde.
