VALENCIA: Racing car giants BMW on Friday confirmed German Formula 1 driver Timo Glock for the 2013 season of the German touring car championship DTM.

Former BMW F1 tester Glock pursued the DTM route as it became clear that Marussia was unable to retain him for the season and he tested the BMW M3 here this week.

“It is very exciting for me to drive for BMW again after all these years and in such a top-class racing series as the DTM,” said Glock.

“I had a fantastic time in Formula 1 but am now looking forward to battling for victories again with my old friends at BMW Motorsport. That is the approach I shall be taking to the challenge of the DTM.

“I am obviously aware I will have to adapt to a few areas. Not all former Formula 1 drivers have found their feet immediately in the DTM. But I am using precisely that as my motivation. After winning the title in such impressive fashion last year, there can be absolutely no question that the BMW M3 has everything it needs to allow us to compete at the front of the field again in 2013.”

“We are delighted to have Timo Glock back at BMW Motorsport. Over the course of his career, Timo has proven on more than one occasion how valuable he is to any team, thanks to his driving ability and open manner,” said BMW Motorsport director Jens Marquardt.
