BMW are in the process of scaling down their Le Mans racing.

There is talk of them returning to F1 as an engine supplier, but not full factory race team.
Le Mans is done, ALMS is done after this season. They are not racing the M3 outside of DTM in Europe (that says it all).

Way to go Bruno and Farfus! Congrats to the entire program, they are working magic.

Not Scott but I asked that question to Dr. Jens earlier this year and he laughed and said that the car will need an update when the new model comes to market in a few years and that it was taken into considerations when developing this current car.

They have to be within certain parameters with the production car to the race car.

Thanks so much for the reply, I am very hopeful that even in a few years these headlights or similar make it to production. That car is angry

Dominating?? Both drivers of the AMG HWA team (Gary Paffett and Jamie Green) are point leaders in the 2012 season.
Either way, congrats to BMW on a well deserved win.

Not dominating? They pulled 2 of the 3-spot podium, that is the definition of dominating.

Where can you watch DTM in North America? Only online?

Kudos to great Canadian driver and BMW team!

Mercedes held the 1st and 2nd spot victory at Hockenheim at the start of the season so what are you trying to prove?
So far Spengler and Farfus are in 3rd and 5th place in terms of point standings. Ya, that should sum up your definition of "dominating".

Sooo Impressive, A pole and win in there second race back after a 20 years...Audi and Mercedes have been in DTM for the last decade, and for BMW to come in, and be at the top out of the box is amazing. Lots of respect for BMW Motorsport.

Fantastic race! Feels good
But i still have some problems relating the new DTM cars to production cars. These are pure prototype cars wearing production car suits.
But still

I guess the definition of dominating is winning by a 1 second margin at a track impossible to pass at.

Paffett and Green are currently the class of the field. Time will tell if they can keep it up. The next few tracks looks well suited for the quick AMG's.
