Arrow LIVE: BIMMERPOST from DTM Season Finale @ Hockenheim. Farfus Takes Pole for BMW

We're reporting live from Hockenheim for the DTM Season Final. Check this thread for regular updates.

First teaser photos from Saturday Practice and Qualifying Results:

Qualifying has just ended. First three are:

P1: Augusto Farfus - BMW

P3: Bruno Spengler - BMW


Will be a tough race for Spengler tomorrow but good to have a BMW driver on pole.


BMW Press Release on Qualifying Results:

Hockenheim (DE), 20th October 2012. Augusto Farfus (BR) secured his second pole position of the season at the DTM season finale in Hockenheim (DE). Just as he did three weeks ago in Valencia (ES), Farfus left the opposition trailing in the wake of his Castrol EDGE BMW M3 DTM in the final qualifying of the year, clocking the fastest time of 1:34.140 minutes. This was BMW’s fifth pole position on the tenth race weekend of the season.

Behind Farfus, the duel for the 2012 Drivers’ Championship is reaching an exciting climax. Bruno Spengler (CA) qualified third at the wheel of the BMW Bank M3 DTM, just seven thousandths of a second behind the overall leader, Mercedes driver Gary Paffett (GB). This is the third time, after the Lausitzring (DE) and Oschersleben (DE), that BMW has had two drivers in the all-important top-four qualifying.

For the first time this season, five BMW drivers qualified in the top ten. Joey Hand (US, SAMSUNG BMW M3 DTM), Martin Tomczyk (DE, BMW M Performance Parts M3 DTM) and Dirk Werner (DE, E-POSTBRIEF BMW M3 DTM) will start from fifth, sixth and seventh respectively on the grid, rounding off BMW’s best qualifying result of the season. Andy Priaulx (GB) went out in “Q2” and will start the race from 14th in the Crowne Plaza Hotels BMW M3 DTM. All six BMW drivers progressed through “Q1” for the third time, after previously achieving this feat at the Norisring (DE) and in Valencia.
