Two Timos enter uncharted territory: Scheider takes Glock for a spin on the Rallycross track in the BMW M4 DTM Race Taxi

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

There was a special meeting of two friends at the opening race weekend of the 2017 #dtm season: Timo Glock (GER) and Timo Scheider (GER) took to the track together in the DEUTSCHE POST #bmw #m4dtm Race Taxi in Hockenheim (GER). But that was not all: Scheider, making his debut at the wheel of a #bmw #dtm car, took his passenger Glock for an unusual ride on the Rallycross track.

The two #bmw drivers first came up with the idea of hitting top speed together in a race car. Without further ado, Glock invited his good friend to try his hand at the wheel of the “Yellow Beast”. However, Scheider surprised the 35-year-old when he suddenly turned onto the section of the Hockenheimring that will host the FIA World Rallycross Championship this weekend. This was the first time a #bmw #dtm car had taken to the narrow RX track, and the duo kicked up plenty of dust.

“Rarely have I had so much fun in the passenger seat,” said Glock after the action-packed trip. “It was only right that Timo should know how it feels to drive a #bmw #dtm car. To be allowed on the Rallycross track was just awesome. It was a great experience for both of us.”

“I have plenty of experience in #dtm cars,” said Scheider. “However, driving the #bmw #m4dtm Race Taxi on the Rallycross track was an awesome experience. I had never driven a #dtm car on a surface like that. It was quite spectacular, and so much fun – a really cool stunt!”
