Formula 3 Euroseries with ASL-Mücke Motorsport
Driving a slower year-old car in his DTM "learning year," Spengler takes his three consecutive points finish to end the 2005 season. While he finishes 16th overall in points, his performance in a year-old car earns him a promotion to a factory sponsored car in 2006.
Spengler's season gets off to a rough start in the Hockenheim opener where a controversial penalty for avoidable contact pushes him from a podium finish in third to 14th and out of the points. At the end of the year, the six points he lost after the controversial penalty would prove costly as he ended the year three markers behind eventual champion Mattias Ekström.
The Canadian has his worst season in a factory car in DTM, scoring only two podiums and ending the year fifth overall in points.
After a tough 2008, the following season is not much better with only three podiums and fourth overall in the final standings.
The 2010 season is a bitter pill for Spengler to swallow. While he finished third overall, he went into the season finale on a tight and dangerous Shanghai street circuit leading the championship by four points but crashed in qualifying and ended up 17th on the grid. All he could manage in the race was 13th, while his two title rivals Gary Paffett and Paul Di Resta finished 1-2. Di Resta took the crown by four points over Paffett who ended up second. Spengler was third overall.
