Jörg Müller has proved more than once in his career that he belongs up there among the best GT drivers of all time. A convincing example of this comes in the form of his performances in the hardest stretch of track in the world, the Nürburgring-Nordschleife. In 2011, he managed to come second there at the 24-hour race in a BMW M3 GT. The year before, Müller made a decisive contribution to Team BMW Motorsport’s overall victory on his favourite stretch of track. It was his second ever triumph in the Eifel marathon, which he had won for the first time in a BMW M3 GTR back in 2004.
The German driver also has good memories of the American Le Mans Series. He won twice behind the wheel of a BMW V12 LMR in 2000, the car BMW had used to win the Le Mans 24 Hours the previous year. Finally, Müller secured the driver title in the ALMS GT class in 2001 in a BMW M3 GTR. Eleven years later, he came back into the series with BMW Team RLL and won the race in Road America in 2012 with Bill Auberlen. In 2013, he will strengthen the ranks of the team at the endurance classics in Sebring and at Road Atlanta.
