Jörg Müller has regularly proven he possesses all the qualities that constitute a top-class endurance driver during his career. This likeable driver this year aims to draw on his considerable experience in order to celebrate further successes in GT racing as he joins BMW Team RLL in the American Le Mans Series for 2012. Müller played a crucial role in the victorious return of BMW Motorsport to the Nürburgring 24 Hours in 2010. It was his second victory in the Eifel marathon, the first coming at the wheel of a BMW M3 GTR in 2004. In addition, he rounded off his successful 2010 season with a LM GT2 class win in the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup season finale in Zhuhai.
He has not only contested Le Mans for BMW, instead amassing experience with other manufacturers, too. In 1998 he was second there for Porsche. In addition Müller raced in the 24-hour race in Daytona (US) and competed in two 24-hour races in Spa-Francorchamps. In Belgium he won upon his debut there for BMW in 1996, and in 2000 drove the BMW V12 LMR with which BMW had won the 1999 Le Mans 24 Hours to two American Le Mans Series wins. In 2001 Müller won the GT class in this competitive endurance championship at the wheel of a BMW M3 GTR.
Early in his career Müller waltzed through various junior formulae with seeming ease. He won championships in Formula Ford, Formula Opel, Formula 3 and Formula 3000. As test and development driver, he played a vital role in the preparation program for BMW’s Formula 1 comeback in 2000. From 2002 he competed in the European Touring Car Championship, twice taking the title fight to the final round. In 2005 he moved on to the World Touring Car Championship, losing out to fellow BMW driver Andy Priaulx in the 2006 season by a single point. Between 2005 and 2009 Müller scored ten WTCC victories.
