Patrick Long is among the most talented American sportscar racing drivers of his generation.  A two-time winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans and three-time American Le Mans Series Driver’s Champion, Long has been racing for Porsche since 2003. A finalist in the Red Bull Formula One Driver Search, Long was snapped up by Porsche after an early career of karting and Formula Car racing across Europe. Since joining Porsche, he’s become the youngest-ever American to take class victories at the four “classic” endurance races - the 24 Hours of Le Mans, 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring and Petit Le Mans - and notably raced for Team Penske in the 2008 season.

Born and raised in Southern California and fluent in five languages (English, Spanish, German, Italian, French), Patrick has lived internationally and raced professionally since age 16. Despite having lived throughout Europe from an early age, he’s never lost his enthusiasm for the SoCal lifestyle, and continues to surf, ride motocross bikes, cross-train on his road and mountain bikes and escape to his family’s Mexican surf shack to vacation.
