75th Birthday of Walter

75th Birthday of Walter


Marking the 75th Birthday of The Master of the Mont, Walter Röhrl, Porsche Centre Wolverhampton would like to congratulate one of the greatest rally drivers of all time on his recent 75th Birthday.

Not only was he crowned World Rally champion twice, but he is also one of the only drivers ever to have won world championship rounds in both rallying and racing.

He was victorious in every class or series – whether TransAm, IMSA, hill climbs (Pikes Peak) or in the German Touring Car Championship. Röhrl is regarded as the world’s greatest rally driver of all time and, at the same time, he is known for his honesty, being someone who always says what he thinks. Röhrl has been a Porsche brand ambassador since 1993 and until recently was also a Porsche test driver, putting the final touches on all new production cars on the Nordschleife. Originally from Regensburg, Röhrl was particularly involved in developing the 959, Carrera GT and 918 Spyder supercars.

For Röhrl, work also means looking after his own fleet of vehicles, which includes several classic 911 derivatives. Incidentally, his first vehicle was a Porsche 356 B Coupe with 75 PS.

Happy Birthday Walter from the entire Porsche Centre Wolverhampton team.
