Dan Harper, Max Hesse and Neil Verhagen now have the keys to a BMW M2 Competition (combined fuel consumption: 10.0 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 227 g/km), a BMW M3 Limousine and a BMW M4 Coupé (combined fuel consumption: 10.0 – 9.3 l/100 km; combined CO2 emissions: 227 – 213 g/km). “We’re delighted that the three lads are representing BMW M so well with their speed and their positive attitude as the BMW Junior Team,” said Flasch during the handover at BMW M GmbH in Garching. “Now it’s not only on the racetrack that they will be driving the most powerful letter in the world, they’ll be driving it on the road as well.” Harper said: “I was really keen to be able to drive an M car from day one. It’s fantastic that the time has now come.” Hesse added: “What’s really good is that we can practice on the Nordschleife with the M cars as well. We’re still new to the track, so every lap that we can do there outside race weekends is really valuable.”
