Bruno Spengler on the podium of the DTM race in Nuremberg

After a break of one month, the series resumed his last DTM weekend activities for the presentation of the fifth of the ten stages of the 2012 season, the streets of Nuremberg (Germany).

After tests and qualifications in the hot sun, in the rain is that the departure was given. A departure that went well ... until the first corner! A general stampede first sent to the holder in the pole position and championship leader, England's Gary Paffett in tete-a-queue. Its Mercedes AMG C-Coupe blocking somewhat the way, several pilots came piling into the turn trying to get around the obstacle!

In mind, the BMW drivers Martin Tomczyk (champion of the series last year) and Bruno Spengler had not expected their opponents. And while we expected to see BMW celebrate a magnificent double, English Jamie Green, Paffett teammate in Team HWA Mercedes, took advantage of a drying track to pounce on its prey in final laps. Bruno Spengler was his first victim. Then, in the final corner, Green has managed to surprise Tomczyk win with some tenths ahead of the German.

Behind, emphasize the fourth place Paffett, author of a great ski lift, the fifth of David Coulthard (best result in two seasons DTM for former F1 driver) and the ninth rookie Robert Wickens. Driving his Mercedes Team Mucke, Ontarian and harvest his first points in the series.

In North America, the top three NASCAR series were in action at Kentucky Speedway. Sprint Cup, Kyle Busch leads more than half of the ordeal but contact with the wall has ended his chances. Dominant during the last thirty laps, Brad Keselowski (Dodge) became the first driver to win three victories in the series this year. Kasey Kahne (Chevrolet) and Denny Hamlin (Toyota) have the full "Top 3". Championship, Matt Kenseth, who is currently the object of rumors ever since he announced that he would leave Ford Racing and his team (Roush-Fenway) at the end of the season to go join a new Team remains leader, before Dale Earnhardt Jr.

In Nationwide Series, Austin Dillon rookie (Chevrolet) has won his first victory in the series while in Camping World Trucks, victory went to James Buescher (Chevrolet). Note also the victory of driver quebecois Andrew Ranger in the ARCA Series (American series reserved for teams with old Nationwide cars) on the road course Millville, New Jersey.

Finally, the North American Rally Cup was in Quebec last weekend, more precisely at the Rallye Baie-des-Chaleurs (Gaspesie). Always a very popular event, won by Quebecois Antoine L'Estage and his co-driver Nathalie Richard. This is the third gain in five weeks for this duo, which dominates the discipline for the third consecutive year.
