ADAC GT MASTERS.

BMW Team Schnitzer just misses out on podium at season finale.

At the ADAC GT Masters season finale at Hockenheim, Timo Scheider and BMW Motorsport Junior Mikkel Jensen secured fourth place in the final race, just missing out on a podium finish in the overall standings. As the track dried out during the qualifying session, Scheider had driven to fifth place on the starting grid. The BMW works driver was in third position early in the race, but Jensen was unable to defend as his tyre grip diminished during the second half of the race. The duo did reach the podium however, finishing third in the Junior standings. “That was certainly a nice way to end the season,” said Scheider, who was celebrating a personal milestone with his 350th competitive race. “Many thanks to BMW Motorsport, BMW Team Schnitzer and Mikkel Jensen for a great year in the ADAC GT Masters. I had plenty of fun and learned a lot, even though I've been doing this for a while.” In the second of BMW Team Schnitzer’s BMW M6 GT3s, BMW Motorsport Junior Dennis Marschall and Victor Bouveng finished in eleventh place to repeat their result from Saturday's race. Scheider and Jensen had finished 14th in that race. Jens Klingmann and Christopher Zöchling retired early on Saturday in the MRS GT-Racing BMW M6 GT3. The duo secured 20th place on Sunday.
