Despite challenging weather conditions the DTM collective test in Estoril brought satisfying results to BMW drivers. Bruno Spengler took to the track on Wednesday and Thursday last week. At the wheel of his Team MTEK BMW M4 DTM, he managed to finish his testing program without any major worry. A strong wind started blowing on Wednesday, creating difficult conditions for the DTM teams, followed by heavy rain on Thursday.

“The conditions were obviously not perfect, but, on the whole, they were still positive days for us. During this phase, the lap times are not decisive. There are no points up for grabs until Hockenheim. The key now is to complete your programme and learn as much as possible. We managed to do that, despite the challenging conditions in Estoril.”Despite challenging weather conditions the DTM collective test in Estoril brought satisfying results to BMW drivers.

Malgré des conditions climatiques difficiles, les tests collectifs du DTM à Estoril ont apporté leur lot de satisfaction pour les pilotes BMW. Au volant de sa BMW M4 DTM du Team MTEK BMW, Bruno, en piste mercredi et jeudi dernier, a pu mener son programme de test sans souci notoire.

Mercredi, un vent fort est venu perturber le travail des équipes DTM à Estoril, avant que la pluie ne fasse son apparition lors de la journée du jeudi sur le circuit portugais.

“Les conditions n’étaient évidemment pas parfaites mais, au final, ce furent des journées tout de même positives pour nous. A ce stade, les temps au tour ne sont pas décisifs. Il n’y a aucun points à récolter avant Hockenheim. La clé est désormais d’aller au bout de notre programme et d’apprendre le plus possible. Nous avons réussi à faire cela, malgré les conditions difficiles à Estoril”.
