Wolf Henzler

Works drivers

Of all his works driver colleagues, Wolf Henzler not only has experience and wisdom of age on his side, but a very special accolade: In December 2011, the 2010 Le Mans winner put in an hour’s overtime on the Thunderhill Raceway in California, and was handsomely rewarded with victory at the spectacular 25-hour race. His two victories at Petit Le Mans (2013, 2014) also turned heads. The Swabian was signed on as a Porsche factory pilot in 2008 and promptly justified the company’s trust that same year with a GT victory at the Sebring 12-hour race and the American Le Mans Series title. In fact, his promotion back then was long overdue, because the Swabian, who now dedicates his spare time to sharing the secrets of kart racing with his talented offspring, was already attracting attention with his prowess at the wheel of the 911: In 2004 he won the Porsche Michelin Supercup, in 2005 he clinched victory at the Daytona 24 Hours from pole position, and in 2006 Henzler was awarded the Porsche Cup as the most successful private driver. Victories at the long distance classics of Le Mans and Spa followed in 2010 – with no overtime.
