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.

Team co-owner Sam Schmidt made 27 career starts in the IndyCar Series as a driver, earning one victory and pole position, both achievements in his hometown of Las Vegas in September 1999 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway while driving for Treadway Racing.

In January 2000, Schmidt became a quadriplegic due to injuries suffered in a testing crash at Orlando, Fla. Schmidt puts his master's degree in international finance from Pepperdine University to work managing the marketing efforts for the IndyCar team he formed in 2001 and the strategic direction of the Sam Schmidt Paralysis Foundation.
