This weekend will see the DTM take over the Nurburgring for the penultimate round of the season.  Fifth in the championship rankings, Bruno Spengler will stop at nothing to remain in contention for the title.

The Canadian driver has done well for himself over the last few races, having visited the podium three times out of four (third and second places in Moscow and second at Oschersleben).  Since the beginning of the season the 2012 champion has been on the podium five times so far and he intends to climb these steps again this coming weekend.

The Nurburgring is a special track for Bruno, he won there three times in 2006, 2010 and 2012.  However it will not be an easy task for Spengler and his BMW team mates.  Although the team currently heads the constructors’ championship, the drivers will have to carry additional ballast to comply with DTM rules after their win at Oschersleben.

“I really like the circuit and have won there a few times. Despite this, it is difficult to say how we will get on, as we will have more weight in the car. Regardless of this, we will obviously do our best and try to score plenty of points for BMW.”

Cinquième du classement provisoire du championnat DTM, Bruno Spengler est décidé à se battre pour se maintenir dans la course au podium final à l’occasion de l’avant-dernier rendez-vous du championnat, ce week-end sur le circuit du Nürburgring.

Le pilote canadien reste sur une belle dynamique puisqu’il a signé trois podiums lors des quatre dernières courses (une 3e et une 2e place à Moscou, une 2e place à Oschersleben). Depuis le début de la saison, le champion DTM 2012 est grimpé à cinq reprises sur le podium. Un score qu’il entend bien améliorer encore ce week-end.

Pour Bruno Spengler, le Nürburgring constitue un rendez-vous particulier. Il s’y est en effet imposé à trois reprises par le passé, en 2006, 2010 et 2012. Malgré tout, la tâche ne s’annonce pas si facile pour le Québécois et l’ensemble des pilotes BMW, qui verront le poids de leur voiture revu à la hausse depuis Oschersleben, suivant la règle du lest de performance

« J’aime vraiment le circuit, et je m’y suis d’ailleurs imposé à plusieurs reprises. Malgré tout, il est difficile de savoir comment nous allons nous situer, considérant que nous embarquerons davantage de poids dans la voiture. Mais nous ferons bien sûr de notre mieux et nous essaierons de viser le maximum de points pour BMW ».

Depuis Oschersleben, BMW occupe la tête du championnat constructeurs.
