Johannes Wittenbeck

Rally Driver Johannes Wittenbeck

Johannes is a passionate athlete with a deep interest for racing. At the age of 14, he began his cycling journey, competing for two years in the U19 category for the German junior team Auto Eder Bayern (rookie team of BORA hansgrohe) in international races. He continued his cycling endeavors for two more years in the German Cycling League, holding onto his passion for biking to this day. Following his high school graduation, Johannes embarked on a journey to study Industrial Engineering in Landshut.

Since childhood, Johannes has held a keen interest in motorsports, igniting his fervor for Formula 1 at the age of 13. As he approached 17 and the prospect of obtaining his driver’s license drew nearer, his fascination with cars and the world of motorsport grew exponentially. Driven by a strong desire to gain experience, he ventured into slalom racing, laying the groundwork for his motorsport career. In 2020, Johannes made his foray into regional rally racing with a self-built Ford Fiesta ST150, achieving notable success with a 3rd place championship finish in his class and securing two podium finishes during the 2022 DRC season (Deutscher Rallye Cup).

Driven by determination and ambition to compete on an international stage, Johannes transitioned into professional motorsport in 2023. Taking the leap as an independent athlete, he now competes across Europe in the ADAC Opel Electric Rally Cup with an Opel Corsa e-Rally.
