Munich. BMW Motorsport Juniors Beitske Visser (NED) and Nico Menzel (GER) will be behind the wheel of a BMW M4 GT4 for the 2018 GT4 European Series season. Both will compete for the RN Vision STS team.


The 2018 season for the BMW Motorsport Junior Programme began in early March with the fitness camp for all participants at Formula Medicine in Viareggio (ITA). All the details of the race schedule for two BMW Motorsport Juniors over the coming months have now been confirmed. Visser and Menzel will have the chance to prove themselves in the BMW M4 GT4 in the competitive environment of the GT4 European Series.


“I am really looking forward to getting started in the BMW M4 GT4 with Nico,” said Visser. “I had the chance to drive the car in Barcelona last year and recorded a win at the first attempt with Dennis Marschall so now I am hoping to continue the success with Nico.”


“It is great to be able to spend a race season driving a car having been involved in its development,” said a delighted Menzel, who completed numerous test and development drives with the BMW M4 GT4 in 2017. “I am really looking forward to the GT4 European Series as the racing there is at a very high level. I think that we have a great set-up but we also understand that Beitske, the team and I will need to get some experience first.”


Visser and Menzel will compete for the RN Vision STS team. The young, ambitious team of experienced motorsport professionals is headquartered in Mönchengladbach (GER) and has been competing successfully in various series since 2016. In addition to the Juniors’ car, RN Vision STS will be competing with two further BMW M4 GT4s in the GT4 European Series 2018 season. The team is also competing in the NES500 series.


“For us, the collaboration with BMW Motorsport within their Junior Programme is a special accolade and a great challenge. Above all, it is a unique opportunity for our up-and-coming team,” said Managing Director Marek Zuchowski. “We have some very ambitious objectives for this year and beyond. We’re convinced that working in such a professional environment will help us to achieve our goals.” 


The GT4 European Series season consists of six race weekends. The two season-opening races take place on 7th/8th April, in Zolder (BEL). The series visits Brands Hatch (GBR), Misano (ITA), Spa-Francorchamps (BEL) and the Hungaroring (HUN), before drawing to a close on 15th/16th September with two races at the Nürburgring.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
