Frenchman Frédéric Makowiecki had the privilege of completing the first laps at the wheel of the Porsche LMDh which will compete in the IMSA and WEC Championships next season. A few weeks after unveiling the first images of its prototype, which uses a Multimatic chassis as permitted in this category, the German manufacturer has moved up a gear and shown that it was clearly on schedule.
« Frankly, it was a very positive first run, commented the French driver, of whom we currently know two teammates, Felipe Nasr and Dane Cameron. We were able to do a few laps and find out that the car was working as expected. Now we have a good starting point to move forward. My first thought went to all the people who worked for months to get this Porsche LMDh to hit the track. It is a very moving moment to be able to represent them. »
To integrate this new category, Porsche has teamed up with the American team Penske, which will set up the racing team and run the prototypes.
