Of all the successes that Jörg 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 and Spa. He laid the foundation for his notable career in sports car racing in Porsche’s one-make race series, when in 2000, he won the Carrera Cup Deutschland and went on to claim the 2001 Porsche Supercup title thanks to seven wins and eight pole positions. This earned the passionate snowboarder a seat in the Porsche works driver squad. His collection of accolades in the USA is impressive: he 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.
Bergmeister contests the GTE-Pro class of the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the Porsche 911 RSR run by the Porsche Motorsport team as well as the IMSA Sports Car Championship (GTD) for Park Place Motorsports. At the Nürburgring 24-hour race he drives a 911 GT3 R for the Manthey Racing team. He also contests the Japanese Super GT Series with the 911 GT3 R.
