BMW Motorsport Junior Mikkel Jensen and Timo Scheider achieved a top-ten result at the fifth race weekend of the ADAC GT Masters at Zandvoort. In the race on Saturday, the driver duo in the BMW Team Schnitzer #42 BMW M6 GT3 finished in seventh place. In the GT series with a top-class field, Jensen started the race from eighth on the grid and handed the BMW M6 GT3 over to Scheider in sixth place half-way through the race. Scheider warded off numerous attacks from his rivals and came home in seventh place. Motorsport Junior Dennis Marschall and Victor Bouveng in the second BMW M6 GT3, number 43, in action for BMW Team Schnitzer, were unlucky. Starting from 28th on the grid, Bouveng delivered a strong recovery race, which saw him move up into 18th place by the driver-change. However, tyre damage that wasn’t his fault forced Marschall to make another pit stop just a few laps after the driver change. The duo ultimately had to make do with 27th place. In the third BMW M6 GT3, car number 14, in action for the MRS GT-Racing team, Jens Klingmann and Christopher Zöchling took it in turns behind the wheel, but were forced to retire early from Saturday’s race. In the race on Sunday, Marschall/Bouveng in 19th place were the best-placed BMW duo. Jensen/Scheider crossed the finish line in 25th place, Klingmann/Zöchling finished in 29th place. “Even though the track doesn’t suit our car, we improved compared with the Nürburgring,” said Jensen. “We were involved in a large number of tough duels in the race on Saturday, but I think that we got the maximum out of it. All things considered, it was another difficult weekend for us, but I think we will definitely be in with more of a chance at the Sachsenring.” The race weekend at the Sachsenring will be held from 7th to 9th September.
