Dirk Werner

Porsche GT Team

He may be new to the circle of Porsche works drivers but he’s definitely no stranger to Porsche: Dirk Werner raced a Porsche 911 back in 2006 and knows many of his team colleagues from that time. Back then he contested the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup, and the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland where he clinched the 2006 title. The following year he won the GT class of the Grand-Am Series as well as the Dubai 24 Hours. In 2009 he was awarded the Porsche Cup as the most successful private driver in a nine-eleven. Nevertheless, it took seven years and a detour via top-league championships such as the DTM before he became a Porsche works driver. “Driving for Porsche feels like I’ve finally come home,” says the family man from Würzburg, Germany, who secured second overall in the 2015 Tudor United SportsCar Championship. “I felt great from day one.”
