Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters touring car championship. Prior to that, his career
had focused on formula single seater racing in Europe. Margaritis has dual
nationality as a result of his place of birth and Greek parentage.

season.In 2005, Margaritis moved from formula racing to touring cars when an
opportunity arose in one of Europe's most high-profile touring car
championships. He was signed by Mücke Motorsport, which was making the same
transition between disciplines.
In a 2004-specification AMG Mercedes C Klasse, Margaritis did not achieve any
points finishes; his best finish was 9th place at Spa-Francorchamps. He then
moved to Persson Motorsport as the third driver in its 2006 line-up alongside
