Munich. The participants have been confirmed for the 2017 BMW Motorsport Junior Programme. Dennis Marschall (GER) and Beitske Visser (NED) are the newest members of the line-up, completing the list of talented young drivers that BMW Motorsport will be supporting in the coming months and years. Visser is the first woman to make the leap to the BMW Motorsport youth programme since its restructuring in 2014. Nico Menzel (GER), Ricky Collard (GBR) and Joel Eriksson (SWE) are already in their second year of training and were joined by new boy Mikkel Jensen (DEN) before the season started. BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt welcomed the new year group in Munich.

“I am delighted to welcome our new Juniors year group Mikkel Jensen, Beitske Visser and Dennis Marschall to the BMW Motorsport family as we celebrate the 40th year of BMW Motorsport talent promotion,” said Marquardt at the reception held at the BMW Motorsport site. “We have another set of very talented Juniors, who won through against numerous competitors to join the group. Mikkel joined the programme some weeks ago. He will be competing in this year’s Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup season with Nico Menzel in the BMW M6 GT3. Beitske, the first woman to be part of our newly restructured promotion programme, and Dennis also have a promising future. And it is to the future that we look when selecting new talent; with the right support, today’s talented young driver can be the champion of tomorrow. Our two-time DTM champion and former BMW youth driver Marco Wittmann is the most impressive example of this. I am convinced that our new BMW Motorsport Juniors will also take the next, important step in their development as #racing drivers. I am looking forward to a thrilling talent promotion anniversary year.”
