Priaulx to DTM

BMW factory driver Andy Priaulx will represent the marque in the German-based DTM series in 2012.

Priaulx, who won the BHC outright in 1995 with a Pilbeam MP58, will drive a BMW M3 in all rounds of the series as BMW complete their move from GT racing to Touring Car racing.

Having dominated the World Touring Car Championship (Andy took 3 consecutive titles) since the mid-noughties, few would bet against BMW giving rivals Audi & Mercedes a real run for their money next year.

The 2012 BMW M3 DTM car was launched a few weeks ago, the following footage shows the car on one of it’s first test runs.
