A Robert Senkyr - led team Senkyr Motorsport from Brno, Czech Republic follows up on successful cooperation with BMW Motorsport.

“I‘m delighted to finally confirm that our team is going to become a part of BMW Junior team for the rest of 2019 season, starting from the next GT Open International race on Red Bull Ring with our BMW M6 GT3. It’s a result of a good relationship that we’ve enjoyed for years and also of our good results from last GT Open season,” said a team owner Robert Šenkýř.

The team welcomes a talented Dutch racing driver Beitske Visser as a part of BMW Motorsport junior programme. A 24-year-old driver has many starts in the single-seaters including ADAC Formel Masters, GP3 or Formula V8 3.5. Last year she qualified for the new Formula W Series, where she currently sits in 2nd place in the championship after three rounds.

Robert Senkyr also used this opportunity to announce plans for the rest of this season.

“In winter, when we were putting together our racing plans for this year, we wanted to start our programme with BMW M4 GT4, to occasionally race in 24H Series and to continue in International GT Open. It’s an international series with strong competition and huge potential. But first we had to work on several things, so I’m glad that we’ve put everything together and we will race in the upcoming event at Red Bull Ring and also in the remaining races of the season at Silverstone, Barcelona and Monza. Beitske was testing together with Richard in Brno in June and she was immediately at home in our M6 GT3, so we’re excited about our first official BMW project together.
We should not forget to mention our technical partners, who are helping us to be competitive enough, so please let me thank to BMW Motorsport, Ravenol, Drexler, Q-servis, Q4U, KW and all others for their support,” said Senkyr.
Beitske will be joined by Richard Gonda behind the wheel of a BMW M6 GT3. The yound and talented Slovak driver already successfully raced in GT Open 2018 for the team at Spa and Barcelona.
“Red Bull Ring is a beautiful track and a place for racing. My winter preparations for BMW M6 GT3 and GT Open took a bit long, but I feel more than ready and really excited. It’s very significant to get support from BMW Motorsport and I can’t wait for us to make another step forward from the last season. I know Beitske from World Series already and other Formula races. She’s very fast and experienced. I believe, that we’ll make a great team for Šenkýř Motorsport during the race weekend,“ says Richard Gonda.

Beitske Visser, who already tested at Masaryk Circuit in Brno with the team, is also excited about the project.
“I already tested with the team in Brno some time ago and I felt really great. The team is working perfectly and every team member is highly motivated. Richard is very fast and experienced and I think we will be a fast pair. I’ve known Red Bull Ring since my Formula racing days and I’m looking forward to the race. It’s going to be my first one with a GT3 car so I’ll have to learn a lot. But I believe, that we can be very fast and we’ll do our best to achieve good results.”
