Kevin Estre joins Porsche Penske Motorsport in 2023. The Porsche works driver will drive the No. 6 Porsche 963 in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) this season, alongside co-drivers Andre Lotterer and Laurens Vanthoor.
Competing in the WEC GTE Pro class last season, Estre produced two victories, at the 1000 Miles of Sebring and at the Six Hours of Fuji, on his way to finishing second in points for his class.
Contesting his first season as a Porsche works driver in 2016, Estre came full circle. The Frenchman honed his craft as a racing driver in the Porsche one-make series in France and Germany. After netting two junior classification titles, he finally took home the Carrera Cup France trophy in 2011 – with an impressive track record: 10 wins, 10 podiums and 10 fastest race laps.
After switching to the Carrera Cup Deutschland the following year, he immediately scored a victory and ultimately clinched “Rookie of the Year” honors.
A year later he was ready for overall victory. With nine race wins he eclipsed the opposition. Estre won the World Endurance Championship title in the 2018-2019 season, clinching victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the way. Moreover, the experienced Frenchman also enjoyed overall success at the 2019 Spa-Francorchamps 24-hour race. In 2021, Estre performed impressively clinching five pole positions at six FIA WEC races.
