Mikkel Jensen claims win at Le Mans.

Win at debut Le Mans appearance: Along with Kay van Berlo, Mikkel Jensen secured victory on the "Road to Le Mans".

The six drivers for the two BMW M8 GTEs were joined by another BMW driver this weekend at Le Mans: BMW Motorsport Junior Mikkel Jensen took part in the 2018 edition of the “Road to Le Mans” – a spectacular event for GT and LMP3 cars ahead of the actual 24-hour race. This was Jensen’s first appearance at Le Mans. He shared driving duties in the LMP3 car from EuroInternational with young Dutch driver Kay van Berlo. “It was primarily about me getting some experience here,” said Jensen. “You don’t often get the chance to drive at Le Mans. The race was fun and I was able to get some valuable Le Mans kilometres under my belt and to come away with a win was simply awesome.” This year, the Road to Le Mans consisted of two 55-minute races for the first time. Jensen and van Berlo started from pole position on Thursday and led from start to finish. On Saturday, the duo finished sixth in an eventful race, in which Jensen was sent into a spin at the start. The EuroInternational team has already enjoyed close links with the BMW talent promotion and has won numerous titles around the world in Formula BMW. Many of today's motorsport stars - including BMW works driver Tom Blomqvist, Indy500 winner Alexander Rossi and Felipe Nasr – competed for EuroInternational early in their careers. The team is currently topping the LMP3 drivers’ and team standings in the European Le Mans Series.
