Biography

This Eberbach-based dentist emerged on the international sports car scene at the 1980 Brands Hatch Six Hours. Siggi Brunn arrived at the Kent circuit with a recently restored 10 year old ex-Joest Porsche 908/3. He qualified for his debut in a noteworthy fourth position and campaigned the car throughout 1980 – finishing second at Silverstone and Vallelunga.

Brunn and young Irishman Eddie Jordan were third at Silverstone at the start of 1981 although tragedy struck at the Nürburgring when co-driver Herbert Müller was killed. Brunn joined the works Porsche team for Le Mans to drive the IMSA GTO class-winning Porsche 924 with Andy Rouse and Manfred Schurti but he did not start.

Brunn competed in the German Sportscar Championship and the occasional British Thundersports race after 1981. His final season in the World Championship was 1986 when he shared Ernst Schuster’s Porsche 936C – sixth at Le Mans their best result.

As well as continuing to practise dentistry in his hometown, he has run Brunn Racing for the last 30 years or so, now specialising in preparing cars for the historic Group C series.
