Not one, but two BMW Motorsport Juniors are contesting the top-class ADAC GT Masters with the BMW M6 GT3 in the 2018 season. Jensen and Marschall both finished on the Red Bull Ring podium, in second and third, in the fifth race of the season. Jensen shares the cockpit of BMW Team Schnitzer’s #42 BMW M6 GT3 with BMW works driver and two-time DTM champion Timo Scheider. In the driver’s standings, a total of two podiums and other good results see the duo in fifth place. In the #43 BMW M6 GT3, Marschall takes turns at the wheel with the former BMW Motorsport Junior Victor Bouveng. Jensen currently leads the Junior ADAC GT Masters’ standings.
“My season in the ADAC GT Masters has gone really well so far. I can be pleased with both the race results and the performances in qualifying,” said Jensen. “Another highlight was my win in the LMP3 car at the ‘Road to Le Mans’ as part of the 24-hour race at Le Mans. I hope to celebrate further successes in the second half of the season.”
Marschall said: “With the podium at the Red Bull Ring, the breakthrough was made. It was a great feeling. Now I feel very at home in the BMW M6 GT3, and BMW Team Schnitzer is the most professional team I have ever been part of.” In addition to his outings in the BMW M6 GT3, Marschall also spent a weekend driving alongside Visser in the BMW M4 GT4.
Visser and Marschall finished in sixth place in Sunday’s race at Brands Hatch at the second race weekend of the GT4 European Series. At the season opener in Zolder, Visser and Menzel finished in seventh place twice. In Misano, the two drivers took another seventh place in the race on Sunday. The duo also shared the cockpit of the BMW M4 GT4 with Dirk Adorf and Tom Coronel at the 24 Hours Nürburgring.
