Stefan Mücke (born 22 November 1981 in Berlin) is a German auto racing driver.

Racing career[edit]

Mücke started his racing career in 1998, when he won the Formula BMW ADAC series, with his father's Mücke Motorsport team, also making their debut. He competed in German Formula Three for his father's team for the next three years, before moving to the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters for 2002. He raced Mercedes for Team Rosberg, Persson Motorsport and Mücke Motorsport in his four years in the series.

In 2007, Mücke moved into sports car racing,[1] in the FIA GT Championship for the AllInkl.com team in a Lamborghini Murciélago R-GT, and in the Le Mans Series and the 24 Hours of Le Mans for Charouz Racing Systems in their Lola. He continued to race with Charouz in 2008. In 2009 he competed at the Le Mans Series for Aston Martin Racing. He recorded three consecutive top-ten finishes in the LMP1 class at Le Mans.

On June 5, 2011, Mücke was involved in incident with Richard Westbrook during FIA GT1 World Championship race at Silverstone. First, Westbrook hit Mücke who spun as a result, while Westbrook damaged his own car. Mücke continued and clipped ahead of Westbrook who was driving down Hangar Straight. Both cars were wrecked as a result, and were out of the race. Mücke received 10-place grid penalty for the next race and he was also reported to DMSB to have his licence withdrawn.[2]

For 2012, Mücke will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship with Aston Martin Racing in a GTE-Pro class Aston Martin Vantage.

In the 80th., edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2012, Mücke and the Aston Martin Racing got the third place in the GTE-Pro class along with his co-drivers the Mexican Adrián Fernández and the British Darren Turner, their Aston Martin Vantage 4.5 L-V8 covered a total of 332 laps (2,811.65 miles), in the Circuit de la Sarthe without failure or serious mechanical problems. Also the team achieved the fastest lap of the category with 3 minutes and 54.928 seconds.[3][4]
