#pinkpanther out in front at the Lausitzring race track: BWT Mercedes-AMG C 63 DTM

Lucas Auer, one of the two drivers sponsored by BWT in the Deutschen Tourenwagen Masters (DTM), finished first in front of 100,000 elated fans at the Lausitzring race track on the 5th of June. Lutz Hübner, Managing Director of BWT Austria and Germany: "This is a historical moment for a number of reasons: it is Lucas Auer's first DTM triumph and he is the first Austrian to take the chequered flag in a DTM race. He drives for Team Mücke, and it is also the first victory for this team. Not least of all, it is the first time that BWT, as sponsor, has had our logo under the spotlight on the winner’s podium!"


Lucas Auer, aged 21, is obviously very happy with his win: "The DTM is a fantastic series, and I am really proud to have achieved my first victory in it. Even more so as the first driver from my own country. We will celebrate today!"


The second BWT-sponsored DTM-Mercedes AMG, with Chris Vietoris at the wheel, achieved 5th place on the previous day (Auer: 7th) and finished 7th on Sunday - meaning that both drivers gained important points for the team rankings. A superb team performance from the two BWT Mercedes AMG drivers!


BWT became the Mercedes-AMG DTM Team car sponsor at the beginning of the DTM season 2015 in the most popular touring car series internationally, and extended the contract by an extra two years at the beginning of 2016 to the end of 2017.


BWT is banking on the Pink Panther to have further successful forays, as Lutz Hübner explains: "Our motor sport cooperation with Mercedes-AMG strengthens BWT's international branding and helps us to continue developing our brand identity dynamically with the end customer. With Mercedes, we share high quality standards, innovative technology and the passion for everything that we do - always with the aim of providing the best for our customers."
