Martin Tomczyk has been placed with BMW's new RMG squad for his DTM title defense this year.
The German manufacturer announced on Friday which teams its six drivers will race for in the coming season, with RMG, which was only formed last summer, joining established touring car squads Schnitzer and RBM in running a pair of M3s.
Tomczyk, who joined BMW from Audi during the winter, will be partnered at RMG by American Joey Hand, while BMW's other big-name signing, Bruno Spengler, will drive for Schnitzer with Dirk Werner.
Andy Priaulx's M3 will be run by RBM, the team for which he won his three world and one European titles. Augsto Farfus, also an RBM driver in the WTCC, will be his teammate.
"In allocating our six DTM drivers to the three teams, we have completed another stage of our planning for the 2012 season," said BMW motorsport director Jens Marquardt. "The test program so far has primarily focused on evaluating control parts, performing basic setup work on our BMW M3 DTM, and familiarizing ourselves with the DTM processes, which are new to us all. However, we now enter the crucial phase ahead of the start of the season in which the focus switches to performance.
"In order for us to be able to push ourselves to the limit and exploit the full potential of the car, it is essential that the cooperation between the driver, his race engineer, and the entire team is perfect. To find the ideal driver/team combinations, every one of our six drivers has driven for each of the teams.
"After many discussions with all those involved, we are confident we have found the optimal lineups, which will allow us to get the best out of the individual strengths of the drivers and teams. The drivers and teams can now continue to grow together and prepare for the season, which begins in just three months."
