Timo Glock and the Hockenheimring once again proved to be a lucky combination for BMW Motorsport in the 17th race of the DTM season. Having shone at the season-opener on the same track back in May, the BMW Team RMG driver impressed again in the penultimate race of the year. At the wheel of the DEUTSCHE POST BMW M4 DTM, Glock initially secured the fourth pole position of his DTM career, before finishing third to take his place on the podium at the end of a hard-fought race. Maxime Martin qualified second to make it an all-BMW front row, but narrowly missed out on a podium finish in fourth place. Bruno Spengler picked up one point for tenth place. Marco Wittmann, Tom Blomqvist and Augusto Farfus were 13th, 15th and 17th.
