Concentrated youth experience in the ADAC’s high-speed school. Erich Baumgärtner, up until last year a race engineer with Team Rosberg, will line up in ADAC Formula 4 with his own team, BWR Motorsport.
“I am very much looking forward to this adventure. It has always been my goal to launch BWR. This is the result of many years in motorsport,” said Baumgärtner. “Everyone in the team has a rich and successful past in motorsport, and I am confident we have a good basis, on which to be successful.”
Over the course of his long motorsport career, Baumgärtner has worked with many youngsters who have gone on to be exceptional drivers. They include Formula 1 world champion Nico Rosberg, DTM champion Gary Paffett, and Jamie Green.
Armed with this wealth of experience, he is now looking to send the next generation on its way in the world of motorsport. Baumgärtner worked with Nico Rosberg in the Formula 3 Euroseries and was part of the crew that helped Paffett to his DTM title.
The team will announce more details of its ADAC Formula 4 programme and drivers shortly.
