Jörg Bergmeister

Porsche GT Team

He is one of the most successful sports car drivers in the world and one of the longest serving Porsche factory pilots. Of all the successes that Joerg Bergmeister has celebrated with Porsche, he is particularly proud of his victories at the famed long distance races. Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring, Nürburgring, Petit Le Mans, Spa – all of these classics are on list of successes of the tall blond racer from Langenfeld, Germany. He laid the foundation for his notable career in sports car racing in Porsche’s one-make race series: In 2000, Bergmeister won the Carrera Cup Deutschland and went on to claim the 2001 Porsche Supercup title with seven wins and eight pole positions. This earned the passionate snowboarder a seat in the Porsche factory squad. His collection of accolades is impressive: In the US, where he is as highly regarded as back home in Germany, the father of one daughter won the popular American Le Mans Series a record-breaking five times – in 2006 back-to-back with the Grand-Am Series: a feat that no other driver has managed so far.
