BMW Motorsport heads into the coming ADAC GT Masters season with a strong mixture of experience and talented youngsters. BMW Motorsport Juniors #mikkeljensen (DEN) and #dennismarschall (GER) are given the opportunity to prove themselves at the wheel of the BMW #m6gt3 in which they will race alongside and learn from a two-time DTM champion. BMW works driver #timoscheider (GER) is set for his debut in the ADAC GT Masters, where he and the two Juniors will drive for BMW Team Schnitzer. Team principal Charly Lamm’s (GER) experienced crew will field two BMW #m6gt3 in the top-class GT series.
BMW Motorsport’s motto for the coming ADAC GT Masters season is “Tradition, Present and Future.” The squad charged with attaining success with the BMW #m6gt3 in the strongest GT race series in the world features an attractive mix of success, tradition, experience and promising young drivers. Scheider, who has been a BMW works driver since 2017, was crowned DTM champion in 2008 and 2009 and is one of the biggest names in the ADAC GT Masters field. BMW Team Schnitzer can look back on a success story with BMW Motorsport that spans several decades. Among the chapters of this remarkable story are victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans (FRA) in 1999, the DTM title wins in 1989 and 2012, and five overall victories in the 24-hour classics at the Nürburgring (GER) and Spa-Francorchamps (BEL).
The talented young drivers are two current BMW Motorsport Juniors and one graduate of the youth development programme. #mikkeljensen will share the cockpit with Scheider on the seven race weekends that make up the ADAC GT Masters. #dennismarschall and Victor Bouveng (SWE), who was part of the BMW Motorsport Junior programme in 2015, will be in action in the second BMW #m6gt3.
“Timo Scheider, the BMW Motorsport Juniors and BMW Team Schnitzer: this combination is ingenious,” said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt. “It combines success, tradition, experience and promising youngsters – everything that makes BMW Motorsport so special. BMW Team Schnitzer is an institution in international GT #racing, and can look back on a long success story. The team showed last year that it can challenge for the title in the top-class ADAC GT Masters. Timo Scheider’s ability and personality make him a big plus for the series and a great example for our young drivers. Finally, Scheider has been a part of the BMW talent promotion himself in the past. Our current Juniors, who have already demonstrated their talent, will now be given the opportunity to test themselves against the best, and to learn from them. Helping young drivers find their way to the top classes of motorsport is a tradition spanning several decades at BMW Motorsport, and is one of the central pillars of our programme. The outings in the ADAC GT Masters is a big step on their way to the top. I am really looking forward to following what is sure to be a very exciting season.”
