Opel Eyes DTM Return with Williams
The DTM will debut new technical regulations in 2012, and this would be a great opportunity for Opel to step into the series equal chanced in front of the already established teams of Mercedes-Benz and Audi.
Williams' CEO Adam Parr confirmed for the media that he met with the Opel representatives a few months ago but, logically, denied all such rumors. However, he did point out that a potential DTM programme sounds like a great idea and that Williams would take it into consideration if a proposal will be made.
“Personally, I would love to do it. I would be very interested,” confirmed Parr.
Switzerland's Motorsport Aktuell announced that Opel will make a final and definite decision on their potential DTM programme in the next couple of months, and provided the fans with one more piece of valuable information: the car most likely to take Opel back to the DTM may be the Insignia model, which will be prepared by Williams later this year.
BMW also announced their return to the DTM series earlier this year, confirming that they'll compete in the 2012 campaign with the M3 model.
