William Wuesthoff

Milwaukee WI

Successful amateur racer starting in 1955 with succession of MG, Alfa-Romeo and Porsche cars, but really made his mark in the fledgling professional and semi-pro events of the time. Ran the 1000km Nurburgring races in a Porsche Carrera GT Speedster as early as 1958. Shared an Elva-Porsche with fellow RRDC member Augie Pabst to win the 1963 Road America 500. Finished second overall to Jim Hall in the 1964 U. S. Road Racing Championship series, and won the Under 2 Liter class, third overall behind two 3-liter Ferraris in the 1962 12 Hours of Sebring classic, sharing a 1.5 liter Porsche RS60 with Frank Rand and Bruce Jennings, and won the event’s quirky Index of Performance award for their fuel efficient effort.
