Robert Wickens is one of Canada’s top international race car drivers with a career decorated with race victories and championship titles won on both sides of the Atlantic.

In 2015 the Guelph-based racer will drive the #6 Team HWA Silberpfeil Energy Mercedes AMG C63 DTM entry in Europe’s premier touring car category, the DTM Series.

Wickens made his DTM debut in 2012 as part of the Mercedes Junior Team before being promoted to the official factory supported Mercedes team, HWA AG, for the 2013 season. The Canadian continues to showcase his talent with DTM victories in both 2013 and 2014, Wickens now firmly part of the established Mercedes line-up.
