MAKING HIS MARK.

Get to know Timo Glock.

Timo Glock lined up in the “Yellow Beast” for his fourth season in the DTM. The ex-Formula One driver joined Marco Wittmann at BMW Team RMG after three years at BMW Team MTEK. And with great success: Glock claimed the third win of his DTM career at the second race weekend of the season in Spielberg.

After 18 races, he ended the season tenth in the Drivers‘ Championship with 84 points to his name. He and Wittmann helped BMW Team RMG to second place in the Team Championship.  

Glock took the first steps in his career in the BMW ADAC Formula Junior Cup and Formula BMW, before suddenly landing in Formula One in 2004. However, after four races for Jordan he found himself without a seat in 2005. Glock, who is used to hard work as a trained scaffolder in his father’s company, showed his typical fighting spirit. He made a detour to the ChampCar Series in the USA and the GP2 Championship, in which he won the title in 2007 whilst at the same time fulfilling his role as test driver for the BMW Sauber F1 Team. He consequently returned to Formula One, where he claimed three podium finishes. In 2013, his path took him back to BMW Motorsport – and to the DTM, where he has been a real fan favourite ever since.
