Tanev, the current leader of the Bulgarian Touring Car Championship, will be at the wheel of a BMW 320si, with the car being one previously used for testing purposes by the works BMW Team Italy-Spain squad.

The Oschersleben outing is the first of three planned by the team during the remainder of the season, with the team also hoping to take part in the final races of the European season at Imola and Monza.
