The best-placed BMW driver in the 13th race of the 2020 season was Timo Glock (GER) in the iQOO BMW M4 DTM in fourth place. Sheldon van der Linde (Shell BMW M4 DTM) and Philipp Eng (ZF BMW M4 DTM) also picked up further points.
In a thrilling qualifying session on Saturday morning, Glock secured the second place on the front row of the grid in damp conditions. The newly asphalted track was mostly dry by the time the race started. After position changes, Glock pulled off courageous overtaking manoeuvres once again, and was on course to finish on the podium up until lap 30 of 42, when he lost a position and dropped down into fourth, which he defended down to the wire.
Van der Linde initially dropped down from sixth on the grid to P13, but then started working his way up the field which saw him move up into sixth place. This result saw the South African maintain fourth place in the DTM driver’s standings. Eng in ninth also finished in the points. Jonathan Aberdein (CATL BMW M4 DTM) was eleventh, directly in front of Lucas Auer (BMW Bank M4 DTM) in P12. Marco Wittmann (Schaeffler BMW M4 DTM) was in a strong fifth place up until the final phase, but a gearbox problem forced him to return to the pit shortly before the end of the race.
