R-Motorsport announces DTM exit

24 January 2020

R-Motorsport, the team that last year brought four Aston Martin Vantages to the DTM, has now revealed that it will no longer be competing in the series.

The outfit says that its withdrawal from the German touring car category is the result of a reassessment of its motorsport strategy and a failure of the company to secure an engine supply deal, after splitting with former engine builder HWA at the end of last season.

The departure means that the DTM entry is likely to fall to just 14 entrants, split between just two manufacturers. The lowest number since 2011.

“The reassessment of our motorsport programme showed that we want to set new priorities for the future and that the DTM engagement would not be appropriate for us anymore,” said team principal Dr. Florian Kamelger. “What we have decided regarding our 2020 motorsport programme 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.”
