The Herberth Motorsport team causes a sensation in German motorsport. In 1996, the racing team from Jedenhofen is at the start in the ADAC GT Cup.
Where’s this young team going? Into the first Porsche Carrera Cup season. The Herberth team achieved fourth place – a magnificent start in Germany’s fastest one-make-cup.
The Jedenhofen team is regularly flying high – but it’s usually on a flight to success! In both 1998…
… and the following year, the team becomes vice-champion in the German Porsche Carrera Cup. Alfred Herberth’s young drivers play an increasingly important role in the highly competitive championship.
With 121 points, Frank Stippler narrowly misses the championship title. He ends the first season of the new century as Carrera Cup vice-champion and later becomes a DTM driver.
Nicole Lütteke, the only female in the Carrera Cup ‘shark pool’, causes a stir. The fast and furious young blonde gathers a series of noticeable successes for the Herberth Motorsport team.
Herberth Motorsport goes point hunting with Frank “Schmicki” Schmickler and the youngster Daniel Bauer. However, the season becomes an emotional roller coaster ride.
Alfred Herberth felt especially proud, when he looked forward to the 2003 season. No wonder! Under the watchful eye of the team boss….
…. both sons Robert and Alfred start for the first time from the grid in the Porsche Carrera Cup.
The twins soon feel at home in the cockpit of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. They become increasingly faster and in virtually all races, they achieve the jump to the top positions.
Robert and Alfred Renauer have also been making an international name for themselves. Highlight of the 2005 season: Alfred’s victory at Road Atlanta.
This year stands under a lucky star for the Herberth crew. Alfred Herberth signs up Uwe Alzen for the tenth year Cup Jubilee. The former DTM pilot and colleague Dominik Schwager form an unbeatable team and secure the team classification title.
This season began where the last one left off – successfully! From the word go, Uwe Alzen is one of the fastest drivers in the field. After another turbulent season…
… he and the Herberth Motorsport team can pop the champagne corks. Alzen becomes champion with 129 championship points. The title in Germany’s most popular one-make-cup goes to Jedenhofen.
In addition to Uwe Alzen, Jörg Hardt starts for Alfred Herberth’s team. The man from Bonn very soon feels at ease with the Bavarians and wins two out of nine races.
Uwe Alzen and Robert Renauer are the driver duo of this 2010 season. The old-hand/youngster combination opens the door to success. Herberth Motorsport is vice-champion in the team rating.
This year, Alfred Herberth concentrates fully on the young Austrian Clemens Schmid and takes him under his wing. The junior talent runs up notable accomplishments.
Herbert Motorsport moves in another direction this season. He focuses on the ADAC GT Masters instead of the Porsche one-make-cups. The Bavarians are successful with three cars in the ‘Dream Sports Car League’.
The GT Masters Weekend at the end of August on the Lausitzring will remain in the memories of all fans. It’s Alfred Herbeth’s last race as team boss of Herberth Motorsport. On the 7th September, Herberth dies in a road accident in Italy. He is only 55…
… but the Herberth Motorsport philosophy lives on. Sons Robert and Alfred become team managers and in 2013, they run two Porsche 911 GT3 R in the ADAC GT Masters.
Their success speaks for itself: Robert Renauer wins the Lausitzring race and fights for the title, race after race. Finally, he and the TONINO Team Herberth can celebrate the vice-championship.
The ADAC GT Masters is high on the Herberth Motorsport 2014 agenda again. The team starts with three cars in the ‘Dream Sports Car League’.
