Götz selected #84 for his début DTM season, partnering Daniel Juncadella at Mücke Motorsport, driving a Mercedes C-Coupé for the team. At the season opening DTM Festival in Hockenheim in early May, Götz achieved two sixteenth place finishes.
Götz found his driving feet in karting, competing from the age of 10 in 1996. Five years later and Götz was promoted to the Formula BMW ADAC Championship for 2002, ending the season in second and claiming the honour of being top rookie. His 2003 title win in Formula BMW earned him the recognition as the ADAC Junior Driver of the Year, with a promotion to the Formula 3 Euro Series in 2004.
Two seasons in Formula 3 saw Götz slowly obtain a reputation as a consistent finisher, although he missed a large section of the 2005 season, finishing a promising season with 13 points. After testing and developing the Ferrari FXX road car through 2006, Götz returned to the Formula 3 Series, although he also took part in the International Formula Master Championship early on in the year. A final season in Formula 3 followed in 2008, although he only managed a single points finish.
The Trofeo Lamborghini Championship tempted Götz in 2009, as he ended the season in seventh overall. Yet, it was in the ADAC GT Masters where Götz finally proved his capabilities, spending five seasons in the championship. His time in the championship peaked in 2012, when Götz took the title, and was rewarded with a Blancpain Endurance Series drive in 2013.
2nd place in his Blancpain debut prompted Götz to go for the championship in 2014, a feat he achieved in the Sprint Series of the championship. It was because of this campaign, which he completed in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3, that Mercedes-Benz opted to sign Götz to their DTM stable, sending him to Mücke Motorsport.
Götz was signed as a full DTM driver early on the 26th of January, 2015, joining Daniel Juncadella at Mücke Motorsport. Using a Mercedes C63 DTM, Götz took two sixteenth place finishes in the first duo of races at the DTM Festival that kicked off the 2015 season.
