Bruno Spengler is now one of the longest-serving DTM drivers in the field. In recent years, however, the Canadian, who crowned BMW’s return to the DTM in 2012 with the Drivers’ title, has also cut a fine figure on the GT racing scene. He made his debut at the 24 Hours of Daytona in the BMW Z4 GTLM in 2015, narrowly missing out on class victory alongside Bill Auberlen, Dirk Werner and fellow DTM driver Augusto Farfus. He also shared a cockpit with Timo Glock and Alex Zanardi at the 24 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps and, at the final round of the ADAC GT Masters, made a vital contribution to BMW Sports Trophy Team Schubert winning the Team title. Spengler was back in the USA in 2016, where he started successfully in the new BMW M6 GTLM. He, Auberlen and Werner finished runner-up at the second race of the season, the 12 Hours of Sebring. Spengler also made his debut in the Australian GT Championship with a guest start in the BMW M6 GT3, showing once again that
his driving ability transcends the DTM.
