Formula Renault

In 1995, Scheider joined the German Formula Renault 1800 championship and won it in his first year. The next year, he jumped to the 2000 championship and earned 4th place.

Formula 3

After only 2 years at Formula Renault, the German jumped series to Formula Three. He clinched 2nd place in 1997 with 3 wins but his performance deteriorated the next year when he ended up 8th. He then got 6th the next year, but his hopes of moving up in single seaters had been fatally dented.

DTM

Scheider driving for Audi (Team Rosberg) in the 2006 DTM season, at Brands Hatch.

As such, Timo spent the next 5 years of his racing career in DTM from 2000. In his first year, he got 12th followed by a disappointing 19th the next year. After that set back, he went up to 8th in 2002. The following year, he also took 8th and also bagged first place in the 24 Hours Nürburgring. In 2004, Scheider retained his 8th place in DTM and was 10th in the 24 Hours Nürburgring. After an FIA GT season he came back to DTM and after a highly exciting season, Timo won the 2008 DTM Championship, finishing four points ahead of Paul di Resta for Mercedes-Benz.

GT

2005 was a busy year for Scheider. He was 2nd in the FIA GT Championship and winner of the Spa 24 Hours and Istanbul. He was also 13 overall and class winner in the 24 Hours Nürburgring. He was also selected for A1 Team Germany that year.
