BMW tests Vietoris and Farfus

BMW has been busy running some unusual drivers in its F1 machinery, to say thank you and to reward them for their success. Former Formula BMW champion Christian Vietoris was given his promised run in one of the cars at Valencia today. He was joined by the company's latest touring car hotshoe Augusto Farfus Jr, who has raced this year with the Schnitzer-run BMW Team Germany. Farfus joined the Freilassing-based team from Alfa Romeo at the start of the season. He won three races and finished fourth in the WTCC standings.
