A very happy 71st birthday to Jürgen Barth. Son of legendary Porsche driver Edgar Barth, Jürgen began his career as an engineer but it wasn’t long before his innate need for speed saw him take to the track.

A natural sports car racer, Jürgen took three class wins for Porsche at Le Mans in a period of near constant racing that spanned almost 20 years.

His most famous victory came in 1977, however, when he took outright victory at La Sarthe alongside Jacky Ickx and Hurley Haywood aboard the prototype 936.
