Baby Dominik und Papa Horst Farnbacher

Baby Dominik and Daddy Horst Farnbacher

The brothers Horst and Hermann Farnbacher dedicated themselves already at an early age to motorsports. They started with national amateur races and after winning several races and championships, the younger one of the Farnbacher brothers, Horst, switched to professional racing.

He competed in the VW Polo Cup and the Treser Cup, which he won 1988. In 1990 Horst Farnbacher raced in the german Touring Trophy, where he could score five race wins.

Meanwhile the first Farnbacher offspring entered the world. Dominik was born in 1984 and it was already clear recognisable when he was a baby that his heart also beats for racing. Like father, like son.

1992 the team Farnbacher Motorsport was officially founded in the Middle Franconian Lichtenau near Ansbach. The all new team raced its first races in the Porsche Carrera Trophy.
In the same year Horsts second and youngest son Mario was born, who also could not help but dedicated his life to motorsports. By now both, Dominik and Mario, have found their places in the national and international GT sport and are well known for their talent.

Since 1995 the team was focusing on two series: The Porsche Carrera Cup and the Porsche Pirelli Supercup and it did not take long until they became one of the top teams. They changed their name from Farnbacher Motorsport zu Farnbacher Racing and competed since not only in the Porsche Carrera Cup but also in the Le Mans Series.
