This past weekend, BMW celebrated its return to DTM racing after a 20-year embargo of its home series. On the first practice day of the weekend at Hockenheim, Andy Priaulx was the best BMW in tenth, almost a second off the pace. By Saturday morning's second free practice just before quallifying, BMW pilot Bruno Splengler, who was 20th on Friday, topped the time sheets. In the end, it was Priaulx who was the top-finishing BMW, registering a sixth-place finish behind a spate of Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and Audi A5 racers. Not a win, but not a horrible start for being out of the series for 20 years.

In case you need to get more in the mood for the rest of the season's racing action, BMW's got one of those amuse-bouche teaser vids of the sinister M3 DTM in action. All you need to do is scroll down to check it out.
