BMW Junior Team

THE BMW JUNIOR TEAM.

New standards in promoting talented youth.

Dan Harper, Max Hesse and Neil Verhagen are the three promising junior drivers with whom the BMW Junior Team made its comeback in 2020, more than 40 years after it was originally founded in 1977. Just like back then, the holistic, intensive training programme is setting new standards in promoting talented youngsters. Alongside racing at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and other international racetracks at the wheel of the BMW M4 GT3, the mental and fitness training at Formula Medicine, and training content within BMW M GmbH, the team philosophy is also an integral pillar of the unique concept. To strengthen this, the drivers live in a shared home.
