BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt has announced that the M3 DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters) Concept Car will make its debut in Munich in July 11. The unveiling will take place during the DTM event on 16th and 17th July at Munich’s Olympic Stadium.

"The fact that the DTM is staging an event in Munich this year is obviously exciting and interesting for us too. The location right on our doorstep gives the term 'home event' a whole new meaning in motorsport in the future. Although we will not be competing in 2011, we want to use this opportunity to give DTM fans and BMW Motorsport followers a taste of what they can look forward to next season. For this reason, this event is the logical venue to unveil a BMW M3 DTM Concept Car,” said Marquardt.

The DTM car will be based on the M3, just like the BMW racer of the 1980s, which will be displayed alongside the concept at the Olympic stadium. BMW is smart to do the launch at its home ground in Munich to capture the media attention. Plans to return to the DTM were announced last year, and the carmaker has been working ever since to perfect the design. When the Bavarians eventually field the car, it will be the first time that Mercedes and Audi will also be involved in 18 years.

The DTM is a touring car racing series based in Germany, but also with rounds elsewhere in Europe.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
