The day began with a round of discussions, during which the different generations chatted about their personal experience of BMW Motorsport talent promotion. Neerpasch, Cheever and Surer spoke of their time in the BMW Junior Team and what made the “Wilder Reiter GmbH” so special. They also listened carefully to today’s Juniors, and offered valuable advice.
Among those present was Jesse Krohn, who successfully graduated from the programme as “BMW Motorsport Junior of the Year 2014” and is now a permanent fixture in the BMW GT driver line-up. He was joined by this year’s BMW Motorsport Juniors, Beitske Visser, Ricky Collard, Mikkel Jensen, Dennis Marschall and Nico Menzel. Joel Eriksson was unable to take part, as he was in action at the famous Formula 3 Grand Prix in Macau.
