The Manthey-Racing GmbH is the most successful Porsche racing team worldwide and it calls the Nürburgring its home. The company is specialized on developing and driving Porsche race cars, along with services for road vehicles from Zuffenhausen. The company, of which Porsche itself holds a share capital of 51 percent, was founded by Olaf Manthey in 1996. The company is staffed with roughly 100 employees. With eight titles in the Porsche Supercup, five 24h overall victories at the Nürburgring and two in Le Mans count as the greatest motor sport successes of Manthey-Racing. The team’s most outstanding achievement was the 2013 double victory in the GTE-Pro class of the 24h of Le Mans. However, the most successful season was in 2015, when they scored three WEC-GT championship titles – one for the manufacturer, one for the driver and one for the team. For 2017, Manthey-Racing is getting into pole position with the new Porsche 911 GT3 RSR for the WEC.
Testing and fine-tuning on the Nürburgring is a must. Therefore, Manthey-Racing’s HQ and testing centre a mere 400 meters from the fastest section of the Nordschleife.
