Team Principal Peter Mücke has dedicated his adult life to motor racing. Born in
East Berlin, he acquired his first taste for the sport zooming around in a Trabant.
After setting up his team in 1998, Peter Mücke (who still likes to get behind the
wheel himself in classic touring car races) worked hard to establish Mücke
Motorsport in various regional and national series.
Through his long involvement in the Formula 3 Euro Series (one of the support
series to DTM), Mücke has become a familiar figure in the DTM paddock over the
years. Some of his former protégés are now well known in their own right. No
fewer than six future Formula One stars – Christian Klien, Robert Kubica,
Sebastian Vettel, Markus Winkelhock, Sebastien Buemi and Sergio Perez – drove
at one time or another for Peter Mücke in various junior series.
The racing team from the Berlin suburb of Altglienicke made its entry to DTM in
the 2005 season. In the years 2006 and 2007, Mücke Motorsport increased their
participation by entering three cars. In subsequent years, the number has gone
down to two. In 2011, the team is once again sending two 2008-spec AMG
Mercedes C-Class into the fray.
