DTM: Oschersleben victory for Bruno Spengler

Bruno Spengler turned his third pole position of the year into his third win for Schnitzer BMW, closing the gap on current DTM championship leader Gary Paffett who finished just 0.6 seconds behind him at this weekend’s Oschersleben round.

The popular Canadian ran a perfect race from start to finish, building up a lead of 4 seconds at one point, with Jamie Green briefly slipping into second place, but it was Green’s HWA Mercedes team-mate Paffett who ended up finishing within sniffing distance of the M3 DTM’s tailpipes.

Local hero Dirk Werner grabbed fourth for Schnitzer, with Brazil’s Augusto Farfus followed in fifth for RBM BMW, while the highest placed Audi driver was Mike Rockenfeller, who crossed the line to secure sixth place.

“This course is really fun to me. She may be aggressive for the car, but everything held. Gary was very fast and I am happy to have brought victory to the finish,” said a jubilant Spengler.
