In 1977, initiated by the managing director Jochen Neerpasch, BMW Motorsport founded the BMW Junior Team. It was the first time in German car racing that a works team introduced a team entirely consisting of juniors. Since then, talent promotion has been firmly established at BMW Motorsport, and the objective has not changed - to prepare young drivers fully for the demands of international racing.
The first generation of BMW Juniors in 1977 were Marc Surer (SUI), Manfred Winkelhock (GER) and Eddie Cheever (USA). With their race car, a BMW 320i modified for group 5, they contested the German Racing Championship to prepare the BMW Junior Team for entering the one-make world championship in the future. In the decades that followed, the juniorsa?T promotion expanded to encompass single-seater racing, and Formula BMW and the Formula BMW Talent Cup became significant stepping stones for young drivers.
Many successful racing drivers have taken their first steps in the BMW junior promotion, including the DTM champions Marco Wittmann (GER) and Martin Tomczyk (GER), BMW works driver and former Formula 1 driver Timo Glock (GER), as well as Formula 1 world champions Sebastian Vettel (GER) and Nico Rosberg (GER).
