Bruno Spengler challenges winter sports stars to a contest

In less than 100 days BMW Motorsport will get its fifth DTM season since its comeback in 2012 underway with the opening race in Hockenheim (DE). But even when there are no races, the BMW drivers don’t sit back and relax. Bruno Spengler (CA) took on the ultimate challenge on ice and snow last weekend. At the Winter Challenge hosted by BMW Bank, one of BMW Motorsport’s premium partners, the Canadian took on biathlon idol Fritz Fischer (DE) and luge legend Georg Hackl (DE), each with a team made up of fans.

Spengler’s bittersweet weekend at the Nurburgring

Despite a podium finish with a third place in Race 2, Spengler feels he was robbed on the Saturday when a crash forced him to retire for the first time this season. Exceptionally, both free practice sessions took place on the Friday, with all BMW drivers struggling to find pace.  However, the qualifying session on Saturday morning saw a change in pace for the BMW M4 and Bruno wound up 4th on the grid with a 1’22’’032 lap. In Race 1 the Quebecois driver got a good start, catching race leader Maxime Martin’s BMW’s slipstream.  Over the next few laps...
