A World Champion As a Teacher.

Timo Bernhard has been involved in motorsport with Porsche for more than 20 years. He was the longest-serving Porsche works driver. At the same time, he is one of the most successful sports car drivers in the world.

His extraordinary career with Porsche began on 19 May 1999 when he signed his Porsche Junior contract. Since then, Timo has proved on multiple occasions that anything is possible. You can see this in his success story. A story of courage, passion and ambition.

The absolute highlights of his career: the 2 World Championship titles and overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Porsche. Not forgetting his record-breaking drive on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. At the end of the 20.83-kilometre lap, the clock showed 5:19.55 minutes. A day that Timo Bernhard will certainly never forget.

Not only has he written his own success story, but also those of numerous Porsche enthusiasts. At the start of the 2016 training season, the Porsche Track Experience entered into a very special cooperation with Timo. One which will be continued in 2021.

As an official partner of the Porsche Track Experience, Timo will personally attend selected training events and share his long-standing expertise with the participants.

The Porsche Track Experience is delighted to be able to draw on Timo Bernhard’s many years of experience and look forward to being able to share this with you.
