The Manthey-Racing GmbH is the most successful Porsche racing team worldwide. The company is specializing in developing and driving Porsche race cars, being crowned champion at the 24 hours of Nurburgring five times, eight titles in the Porsche Supercup and two Le Mans victories under their belt.
The company also does services for road vehicles in their HQ in Zuffenhausen. The company, of which Porsche itself holds a share capital of 51 percent, was founded by Olaf Manthey in 1996. Currently, Manthey Racing is staffed with around 100 employees.
Manthey Racing’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.
Motor sports is pure passion and for many years, Manthey has been burning for it, together with Porsche vehicles. Their victories so far speak louder than words.
Testing and fine-tuning on the Nordschleife is a must, especially for the sportiest of all Porsche variants. Therefore, settling Manthey-Racing’s office and testing centre a mere 400 meters from the fastest section of the Nordschleife is more a conscious choice out of commitment, rather than luck.
