Soft-spoken, direct, and intensely confident: Phillipp Eng’s demeanor is born of a wealth of motorsport experience unusual in a driver so young. Only 27 years old, he was one of the drivers chosen to participate in BMW M8 GTE development program from day one.
After karting, Philipp’s first taste of open wheel racing came in the Formula BMW Championship in 2006. He won the Formula BMW World Final Championship race in 2007 and was awarded with the role of test driver for the BMW Sauber F1 Team in 2008.
Having driven almost all of BMW’s current racing cars, 2018 will see Eng become only one of six drivers to race in the BMW DTM program. Biggest win to date? Co-driving a BMW M6 GT3 to the Spa 24 Hours victory in 2016.
