Tom Blomqvist is a British racing driver, who is competing in his debut season in the DTM in 2015 DTM Season.[1] Blomqvist, competing for BMW Team RBM alongside Augusto Farfus, is the son of rally legend Stig Blomqvist.[2]

Current SeasonEdit

Blomqvist races a BMW M4 DTM in the 2015 DTM Championship, using #31 as his race number.[1] After a strong debut in qualifying for race one at the 2015 DTM Festival at Hockenheim, Blomqvist lost a total of 18 places over the weekend, failing to score a single point.

BackgroundEdit

After several years in go-kerting from the age of 10, Blomqvist started racing cars in 2009, racing in the Swedish version of the Formula Renault Championship.[1] His campaign ended with the Brit taking third place in the final standings, with occassional appearances in the British Formula Renault Championship.[1] He opted to compete in the British version full time in 2010, a move which resulted in him becoming the youngest ever winner of the Championship.[1]

McLaren began tracking Blomqvist's progress from that moment onwards, signing for their Driver Development Programme in 2012.[2] He celebrated this with a rookie campaign in the Formula 3 Euro Series, a season that finished with him in seventh overall.[1] A similar campaign followed in 2013, before Blomqvist finally fulfilled his promise in 2014.[1] Six victories saw Blomqvist end the season as runner-up, and prompted attention from BMW and their DTM campaign.

DTM HistoryEdit

Joey Hand's departure from BMW's DTM programme at the end of 2014 freed up a seat in their eight car squad, with Blomqvist joining in February 2015.[3] His debut came at the season opening 2015 DTM Festival in Hockenheim in early May, with Blomqvist impressing in qualifying for race one as the best placed BMW driver. It was not to be his weekend, however, with the young Brit failing to score despite his strong qualifying performance.
