DTM Champion Bernd Schneider To End Racing Career And Become Mercedes-AMG Brand Ambas

This Sunday will mark a sad day for fans of Bernd Schneider, as the legendary 44 year-old DTM driver has announced that next week's race in Hockenheim will be his last. The news marks the end of a 17 year racing career between Mercedes-Benz Motorsports and Bernd, during which he was able to win a total of 43 out of 226 DTM and ITC races for the team and capture both an ITC championship and five DTM championships. No DTM driver has ever been more successful.

That's sad news but to be expected! I'm glad he'll stay on board to promote Mercedes.

I was at Watkins Glen International back in the days of IMSA GTP and remember Scneider blasting down the back straight (before the kink was installed) at well over 200mph in a Porsche 962. Wish him the best and glad he will be with Mercedes.
