BMW has confirmed the four names that will get to test the M4 DTM at Jerez in the upcoming young drivers' test.

2015 champion Louis Deletraz, Josef Kaufmann Racing
Jesse Krohn, BMW Team Marc VDS
Alexander Sims, HitechGP F3 Dallara Mercedes-Benz
George Russell, Carlin Dallara Volkswagen

The testing duties will be shared by BMW juniors Louis Deletraz and Jesse Krohn, as well Alexander Sims and George Russell.

Deletraz is the 18-year-old son of former F1 driver Jean-Denis Deletraz and the 2015 Formula Renault 2.0 NEC champion. The Swiss driver will move to Formula 3.5 with Fortec next season.

Krohn, 25, is a BMW GT driver and finished runner-up in ELMS' GTE class in 2015 alongside Henry Hassid and Andy Priaulx.

27-year-old Sims, a race winner in GP3, F3 and British FR2.0, drives a BMW Z4 GT3 in British GT, having helped Marco Attard to the title in 2014.

The youngest name in the line-up - 17-year-old Russell - is another F3 race winner and the 2014 champion of Britain's BRDC F4 category.

The test will take place on December 1-3.
