Fresh Brewed & Air Cooled: Gunnar Jeannette


In 2000, Gunnar Jeannette made his ALMS debut in both the Prototype and GT classes and claimed six top-ten finishes. That same year became the youngest driver to complete the 24 Hours of Le Mans at the age of 18.

Since then, he’s competed in the U.S. and Europe with the factory Panoz and Ford Racing teams and has competed with private teams such as Corsa Motorsports and CORE Autosport.

Gunnar has also had seat time in a number of the most iconic vintage race cars and has been the Revs Institute’s go-to professional driver for cars such as the RS61, 908LH, and the 917PA. One might speculate that Gunnar has more seat time in these significant historic Porsches than anyone else in modern times.

He’s immensely fast behind the wheel, and truly a treat to watch in action on the track.
