Wolf Henzler has an accolade that none of his works driver colleagues have achieved yet. 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 rewarded the company with a GT victory at the Sebring 12-hour race and the American Le Mans Series title.

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.

Wolf Henzler contests the 24 Hours of Le Mans (GTE-Pro class) with the Porsche 911 RSR of the Dempsey Porsche Racing team as well as the Nürburgring 24-hour race for the Falken Tyre customer team in the Porsche 911 GT3 R. He now dedicates his spare time to sharing the secrets of kart racing with his talented offspring.
