Serge Vanbockryck started his career as a journalist and photographer in the late 1980s, covering sportscar and endurance racing for newspapers and magazines across Europe and the UK, while also working for radio and television in Belgium, France and the UK. He was also a photographic contributor to many of the ACO Le Mans yearbooks, to Dr. János Wimpffen’s sportscar tetralogy that accompanied his epic Time And Two Seats, and to Jean-Marc Teissèdre’s biography of Bob Wollek. He is a regular contributor to British monthly Racecar Engineering and to Germany’s leading automotive monthly, Sport Auto, as well as being the co-author of the official Porsche Rennsport Reunion programmes. He is also a member of The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain.
Since the late 1980s he has been studying, documenting and gathering all possible racing and test data on the 200-plus Porsches 956 and 962 that raced in period competition from 1982 until 1999, with the clear purpose of one day writing the ultimate book of reference on this most iconic of race cars. His dozens of interviews with key decision makers at Porsche, and also with engineers, managers and drivers from the works team as well as the many privateer teams, and his several hundreds of hours spent researching every conceivable period document at Porsche’s historical archives in Stuttgart, have over time made him one of the world’s foremost historians on the subject.
Professionally, he left journalism for public relations and marketing in the mid-1990s, working in F1 and the World Rally Championship with Marlboro and Lucky Strike, and Le Mans and the WRC when Toyota returned to international motorsport with the Corolla WRC and the GT-One. Since 2000 he has been involved with General Motors’ international motorsport activities as European PR coordinator for the Cadillac LMP, Corvette GT and Chevrolet WTCC programmes. In 2019 he received the international ACO/UJSF Communications Award for his work with Corvette Racing.
