Five promising, talented youngsters are part of the 2017 BMW Motorsport Junior Programme. They are all just setting out on their careers, but already have a fascinating journey behind them. In a series of interviews, we present each of the BMW Motorsport Juniors. This time: Mikkel Jensen.
At the shootout for potential new Juniors, Mikkel Jensen convinced those in charge of BMW Motorsport so effectively that they were confident enough to allow him to compete in the BMW M6 GT3 in his first year as a BMW Motorsport Junior. In the Blancpain Endurance Series, the 22-year-old Danish driver co-drove with Nico Menzel and the third driver, Christian Krognes, for Walkenhorst Motorsport. He also gained his first experience on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Jensen won the ADAC Formel Masters title in 2014 and has competed in the Formula 3 European Championship for the last two years. Last weekend, he was at the DTM finale in Hockenheim.
