Timo Glock

Glock began racing at the age of 15 in karting and in 2000 switched to cars in the Formula BMW-ADAC Junior Cup, which he won. He graduated to the main championship the following year and won that as well and so jumped into Formula 3 in Germany in 2002 with Opel Team KMS. He finished third in the series and moved to the new Formula 3 Euroseries in 2003, winning three races and finishing third in the series. In 2004 he was signed up to be third driver for the Jordan F1 team and took over the second car in Canada when Giorgio Pantano had a contractual dispute with the team. He finished seventh and when Pantano left the team Glock took over until the end of the year. he hoped to land a fulltime drive in F1 in 2005 but ended up in the United States where he raced for Rocketsports Racing in the Champ Car series. Despite good opportunities in America for 2006 Glock opted to return to Europe to race for BCN Competicion in the GP2 series, hoping that this would help him to get back into F1.
