Augusto Farfus Takes the Hot Seat in Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM

Augusto Farfus will take the hot seat in the Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM for the manufacturer’s first season in the championships for twenty years. BMW Motorsport and Castrol EDGE are hoping the 28 year old Brazilian will give a strong performance in the eleven race events. Castrol and BMW have some strong history. They have worked together across number of motorsport properties including F1, the World Touring Car Championship, 24 hour racing, and motorcycle racing events.

Augusto Farfus,BMW DTM Driver, said:

“Ever since my debut as a BMW driver in 2007, I have always enjoyed working with Castrol. A strong oil is very important in racing and you need to be confident that you can push your engine to the absolute maximum at any point during the race.”

“The DTM is a very competitive series and for this reason you’re never going to win anything unless you have great technical partners on board, so to have Castrol’s technical expertise is a real boost for the team.”

“Pre-season testing has gone really well and all the team are confident that we have the strength to compete at the top this season. Now I’m just looking forward to finally getting out there for my DTM debut and showing everyone what I can do.”

Donald Smith, Castrol Sponsorship Manager, said: “Everyone at Castrol is really happy to have Augusto behind the wheel of the new Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM for the 2012 season. We’ve worked closely with him before so we know how hard he works and most importantly what a strong driver he is.”

“The DTM really is one of the most spectacular racing series in Europe and pushes the drivers, teams and cars to the very limit. Our newly developed Castrol EDGE FST™engine oil will help Augusto deliver maximum engine performance and will give the whole team the strength to perform at the highest level.”

“Together with our long-term partner, BMW Motorsport, we are looking forward to the challenges ahead and will do everything in our power to ensure that BMW is able to triumph in the DTM as they have done in the past.”
