Now in the frame: Christian Menzel, professional (Porsche-)racing driver

February 18th, I met one of the most experienced racers at the Nürburgring grand circuit, the famous Nordschleife. Christian Menzel, aged 42, will take three young guns to the 24 hours race in the gruelling Green Hell. They will share a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup in the distinctive HARIBO-livery.

For Christian, it will be a return to hollowed grounds. Back in 1999, he already knocked on heaven´s door, being a hot contestant for overall victory in the german Carrera Cup. For him, it pointed out to be a waiting game, because he had to be patient until 2005. Then, "Magic Menzel" took what he deserved: victory in the world´s most prestigious one-marque-championship.

Please find a large-format-interview in PORSCHE SCENE 05/2013, and please find some historic pictures of his impressive career!

Venue (yellow 911 GT3 Cup, gen. 996): Norisring, Carrera Cup Germany, 2002
