Ingo Hoffmann (born February 28, 1953) is a retired Brazilian racing driver from São Paulo. He participated in six Formula One Grands Prix, debuting on January 25, 1976. He scored no championship points.

History[edit]

Formula One years[edit]

Hoffmann's Formula One career was hindered by the financial problems of the Fittipaldi team. Hoffmann drove the team's second car when realistically the team could only afford to run one car. This meant Hoffmann only entered certain selected races, and ultimately the second car was dropped altogether.

After Formula One[edit]

With the end of his Formula One career, Hoffmann competed strongly in Formula 2, and also in sports cars and saloon cars both in Europe and in South America.
Notably, Ingo Hoffmann has won the Brazilian Stock Car Championship 12 times (1980, 1985, 1989-1994, 1996-1998 and 2002). In 2006 December, he took his 100th win (of the races in the Brazilian circuits) at the Autódromo Internacional Nelson Piquet de Brasília, final race of the 2006 season.
