Jorg Bergmeister, Team Project 1 on 10/06/2019 at the Le Mans 24H 2019
PORSCHE ROAD & RACE caught up with the amiable Jörg Bergmeister, to ask him how he has been dealing with the Coronavirus lock-down. With all major motorsport activities on hold or cancelled, and with no end to the Coronavirus outbreak in sight, there is no way of knowing when things will return to a sense of normality.
Those who have been following the sport for some time will know that Jörg Bergmeister has been around Porsche GT cars for quite a long time. In fact, Jörg’s time behind the wheel of a Porsche started back in 1996, when he finished seventh in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland, scoring one pole and two podiums in his first year. However, Bergmeister’s time in a Porsche began in earnest in ’98, winning the Carrera Cup Deutschland in 2000 and the Porsche Supercup title in 2001, which earned him a full-time seat as Porsche works driver as from 2002.
