R-Motorsport and HWA cooperation terminated
The cooperation between R-Motorsport and HWA for the DTM Aston Martin programme has been terminated with immediate effect after a mutual agreement between the two parties.
“Regrettably, we have been unable to establish any consensus for further collaboration with HWA AG in regard to fulfilling our commitment to the DTM, so that the only option for us now is to terminate our partnership with HWA in the DTM and to focus on the future,” said team manager Dr Florian Kamelger.
“Despite the termination of our collaboration with HWA, however, we still plan to continue our involvement in the DTM, and we will reorient ourselves in 2020 under these changed circumstances in coordination with Aston Martin.”
Aston Martin has confirmed continued support to R-Motorsport for the 2020 DTM season and a potential expansion to Super GT.
“Aston Martin will continue to be supportive of R-Motorsport’s DTM programme with the Vantange DTM race car and their wider plans to compete in race series governed by Class 1 regulations, such as the Super GT in Japan and in Asia,” said Dr Andy Palmer, president and group CEO of Aston Martin Lagonda.
