Returning for his second season in the #5 car, Makowiecki will be fighting for his first overall victory at his home race: The 24 Hours of Le Mans. He previously tasted success in the GTE Pro class in 2022 and has four further podiums.

Sparking the flame

Makowiecki always had a keen interest in endurance racing, but a visit to the 24 Hours of Le Mans as a child in 1993 was what set him on the path to joining Porsche Penske Motorsport. 

Competing in go-karting at the time, he “saw the cars in the day, in the night, with the flames, with the carbon brakes going red, it made me say one day I want to be there.”

When the announcement was done that Porsche would collaborate with Penske, it’s two big names in motorsport, and for sure it means a lot.

Where values are indicated as ranges, they do not refer to a single, specific vehicle and are not part of the offered product range. They are only for the purposes of comparison between different vehicle types. Additional equipment and accessories (add-on parts, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics. These factors, in addition to weather, traffic conditions and driving behaviour, can influence the fuel/electricity consumption, CO₂ emissions, range and performance values of a vehicle.
