For this year's Porsche Junior Programme, Porsche gathered young motorsports talents from all over the world for their intense selection process. Follow current Junior drivers, Michael Christensen and Klaus Bachler, on their way through the four highly competitive challenges they had to pass. Starting with a first fitness assessment in Potsdam, Germany.
Following the first fitness assessment was the driving test on the 911 GT3 Cup car in Vallelunga, Italy against 4 other finalists.
After being selected in the fitness and driving tests, they had to prove their skills in the 911 GT3 Cup car under real term conditions: during the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup and Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland pre-season testing days.
In the end it was time to compete against some of Germany's best and most experienced sportscar drivers in the season premiere of the Porsche Carrera Cup
