Hockenheim. 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 M4 DTM 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 M4 DTM 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!”
