Glock prepares for BMW test

2013-01-23 10:39

DIFFERENT BALL GAME: Timo Glock, who has left the Marussia, is preparing for a test in a German Touring Car (DTM) with BMW.

 Timo Glock will take part in a German Touring Car (DTM) test with BMW in Valencia this week (Jan 21 - 27) after his departure from the Marussia Formula 1 team, BMW said on Tuesday.

Glock said: "I have fond memories of my time with BMW Motorsport and am very excited about testing the BMW M3 DTM.

"Furthermore, I am bound to see a few familiar faces in Valencia from my previous time with BMW. I am really looking forward to it."

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS

BMW motorsport director Jens Marquardt worked with Glock, who started out as a teenager in Formula BMW and was BMW-Sauber's Formula One test driver in 2007, at the Toyota F1 team until the end of 2009.

Marussia announced on Monday (Jan 21) that Glock, who had a contract for 2013, would not be driving for them this season after a mutually agreed separation due to financial reasons.
