Born in the Olympic City of Innsbruck, Austria, Rene Binder was the last race winner of the former Renault World Series, one of the most successful F1 feeder series’. After a partial season program in the Verizon IndyCar Series the 27 year old is now aiming for glory in the highest leagues of Endurance Racing.
The FIA World Endurance Championship or FIA WEC is a series of endurance races organised by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, using the same rules and regulations as in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The series will have a record number of entries in 2022. In the tenth year of its existence, a total of 39 sports cars in the Hypercar, LMP2, LMGTE-Pro and LMGTE-Am classes will line up on the grid. Racing in the LMP2 class in particular will be very close this season. Rene Binder will tackle this hugely challenging world championship series with G‑Drive Racing, the successful outfit, with which he won the 2021 Asian Le Mans Series.
