Timo Bernhard is the ADAC Racing Driver of the Year

Timo Bernhard is the ADAC Racing Driver of the Year

Stuttgart. Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard (29, Dittweiler) has been voted ADAC Racing Driver of the Year by a jury of experts. He is the first racing driver ever to win the four
major long-distance classics, thus bringing home a genuine Motorsport Grand Slam. Driving for Porsche, Bernhard won the Daytona 24-hour race in 2003, the Nürburgring 24-hour race four times in a row between 2006 and 2009, the Sebring 12-hour race in 2008 and, in an Audi, the Le Mans 24-hour race last June. The award of ADAC Racing Driver of the Year will be presented for the 31st time. Past winners include Walter Röhrl, Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel.

"This award means a lot to me. It’s the culmination of a very special motor racing season", Timo Bernhard said. "My first taste of motor racing was in the ADAC Kart Slalom championship in 1991. For me this was the perfect springboard as a young driver, because it was all about talent and not about budget."

The jury praised in particular Bernhard’s endurance, his strong sense of team play and his assertiveness in pursuit of numerous titles. According to the jury, these qualities make Bernhard an ideal sporting role model for young racing drivers. Bernhard won the title after a run-off with Formula 1 driver Nico Rosberg (25, Monaco).

The ADAC with more than 17 million members is Europe’s largest motoring organisation

American Le Mans Series: Tenth GT drivers’ title for Porsche pilots
At the finale on the Road Atlanta circuit in the US State of Georgia (2 October) Porsche works drivers Joerg Bergmeister and Patrick Long celebrated their title defence in the strongly-supported GT class. This latest success is Bergmeister’s fifth driver’s championship in the ALMS with Porsche. Patrick Long, his teammate at Flying Lizard Motorsports, has notched up three titles. Since the start of the ALMS in 1999, Porsche pilots have won, amongst other accolades, ten GT driver’s titles. The outstanding efficiency of the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR once again yielded victory in the environmental Michelin Green X Challenge for Porsche.

Porsche Intelligent Performance: Le Mans winners pilot 911 GT3 R Hybrid
A fitting debut for the innovative Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid in the USA: At the season final of the ALMS, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Mike Rockenfeller – the overall winners of this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours – took on the job in the cockpit. The race car with its ground-breaking hybrid technology ran like clockwork and provided engineers with valuable data to further develop the system.

Works driver Wolf Henzler: Chequered flag for the bachelor
On 9 October after a 12 month engagement, Porsche works driver Wolf Henzler and his fiancée Antje finally tied the knot. The couple live in Nürtingen near Stuttgart with their son Noah.

After claiming fourth at race 13 and victory at race 14 in Monza (2/3 October), Porsche works driver Patrick Pilet and Raymond Narac travel to the final round in Barcelona ranking second in the championship. 15 points separate the two IMSA Performance Matmut pilots from the current Ferrari leaders. 44 points are still up for grabs.

Italian GT Championship: Gian Luca Roda is the GT3 champion
Second at race 13 and a cautious fifth at the 14th and final race of the Italian GT Championship in Monza (24 October) was enough for Gian Luca Roda to clinch the GT3 title at the wheel of the 911 GT3 R fielded by Autorlando Sport. Roda shared the cockpit at these decisive races again with Porsche factory pilot Richard Lietz.

French GT: Strong finish for Bornhauser and Groppi yields championship
Only at the last race weekend in Magny-Cours (16/17 October) was the fight for the title of the French FFSA GT Championship decided. Patrick Bornhauser and Laurent Groppi took up the two final heats in their Larbre Compétition 911 GT3 R ranking second in the points. Victory at race one kept their title chances open. Second place at race two yielded the pair the championship against strong opposition from a Corvette over six gruelling weekends.

Belcar Endurance: Goossens and Soulet head to final as points’ leaders
After their third win of the season at round five in Zolder (10 October), Marc Goossens and Maxime Soulet travel to the final, the Zolder 10 Hours (13 November), leading the points. Goossens and Soulet drive a Porsche 911 GT3 R from Prospeed Competition.

Carrera Cup Deutschland: Old-hand Armindo beats rookie Tandy
Finishing the finale in Hockenheim (17 October) in fifth, Nicolas Armindo from France crowned his sixth season in the Carrera Cup Deutschland with the championship title. Three victories and points from all nine events was the key to success for the Hermes Attempto Racing pilot. Armindo is the first non-German champion in the Carrera Cup Deutschland. His arch rival was the British rookie Nick Tandy, who concluded the year as runner-up after five wins.

Carrera Cup France: Makowiecki beats Estre by a mere point
Four straight wins, the last two at the final in Magny-Cours (16/17 October), gave Frédéric Makowiecki (Luxury Racing) a one-point lead over Kévin Estre (Sofrev ASP) to claim the title. From 13 races, the new champion notched up seven victories.

Carrera Cup Great Britain: Tim Harvey claims title with brilliant timing
Tyre damage in the last race saw Tim Harvey come away with the only zero result of the year but luckily when he had nothing to lose – he was already the 2010 champion. Harvey notched up eleven wins and seven second places from 20 races in the Red Line Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, to clinch the trophy at the penultimate round in Brands Hatch (9 Oct.).

Carrera Cup Asia: Christian Menzel recaptures the points’ lead
On the Shanghai International Circuit (23/24 October), reigning champion Christian Menzel elbowed his arch rival Craig Baird off the top of the points’ table with a victory at the ninth race in torrential rain. At race ten, Menzel made the weekend perfect for his StarChase squad with another win at the wheel of his Porsche 911 GT3 Cup.

Carrera Cup Japan: Yasuhiro Shimizu calls on experience to defend title
Reigning champion Yasuhiro Shimizu (Team Art Taste) called on his experience during the last and decisive race weekend in Motegi (23/24 October). After a jumped start and the ensuing drive-through penalty for his arch rival, the young racing talent Hideto Yasuoka, Shimizu scored a win in race one. In the final race, Yasuoka was the winner, while Shimizu avoided taking any risks to bring home second and defend the title.

Patrón GT3 Challenge: Henrique Cisneros wins the Gold Cup
After the 14th and final race on the Road Atlanta circuit (1 October) rookie Henrique Cisneros was delighted to take home the title in the Gold Cup class for 911 GT3 Cup cars from the model years 2005 to 2009. Assisting as coach of the NGT Motorsport pilot, for whom only the Sebring circuit was familiar, was none other than Porsche works driver Wolf Henzler.

GT3 Cup Challenge Australia: Roger Lago is the new champion
It looked like the title was in the bag: Reigning champion Matt Kingsley travelled to the last three races on the Sandown Raceway (23/24 October) with a comfortable points’ lead over his pursuer Roger Lago. But Kingsley then seriously damaged his Porsche in a high-speed crash during the qualifying session. He was uninjured but had to watch from the pit wall as Lago, with his usual caution, drove the Falcon Property Group/Lago Coldstores 911 GT3 Cup home to his first unexpected championship. Kane Rose won all three races of the weekend.

Super Sports Cup: Final wins for Heyrowski and Jahn, Micanek champion
Victory at the two final races of the Porsche Super Sports Cup in Hockenheim went to Sven Heyrowski in the Porsche 911 GT3 R as well as David Jahn in a 911 GT3 Cup. The trophies were presented by the Chairman of the Board at Porsche AG, Matthias Müller, Board Member of Sales and Marketing, Bernhard Maier, as well as the Managing Director of Porsche Germany, Klaus Zellmer. The championship title went to the Czech Tomas Micanek, who had already been confirmed as champion prior to the final round.

Como pilotos, tienen contratados a los hermanos Tim y Jörg Bergmeister de Langenfeld.
A partir del 2006 ya, cuando Tim compitió en las 24 horas en Bahrein para el equipo Mühlner Motorsport, forma parte habitual de la escuadra del ambicioso equipo de las Ardenas, en Bélgica. El punto culminante en la cooperación en cinco años habían sido el título en la ADAC GT Masters 2008.
Su hermano Jörg, Porsche oficial driver, ya ha competido en doce carreras para el equipo Mühlner durante los últimos tres años. La participación en la Nordschleife contribuirá a preparar la temporada 2011 cuando Mühlner Motorsport tiene planes para competir nuevamente en todas las rondas de la VLN Langstreckenmeisterschaft Nürburgring y en la ADAC 24 Horas en Nürburgring.
La primera participación en VLN de Mühlner Motorsport tuvo lugar (con un Opel Kadett Grupo N ) en Nürburgring Nordschleife y las carreras de resistencia, siempre ha sido parte de su programa básico, además de la participación en la serie de carreras en todo el mundo. En 1999, Heinz-Josef (Juppy) Bermes y Dirk Adorf con el equipo Mühlner Motorsport pasó a ser campeones en un Opel Astra y, en 2004, Ulli Andree, como parte del mismo equipo, terminó la serie en un Volvo S60 como ganador en el grupo SP y como vice-campeón en la clasificación general. En el año 2004 finalmente, Heinz-Josef (Juppy) Bermes y Jochen Krumbach ganaron la clasificación anual de Copa Porsche en la VLN.

Hast ahora este equipo ha competido en 33 carreras 24 Horas en todo el mundo.
Estamos muy ilusionado en la carrera en nuestra querida Nordschleife. Por supuesto, también es muy divertido participar en casi todos los circuitos en Europa o en Oriente Medio (Bahrein, Dubai, Abu Dhabi) y en Asia (China, Japón), pero la Nordschleife es algo muy especial y es nuestra pista hogar desde hace más de 20 años , explica Bernhard Mühlner.
