Contesting his first season as a Porsche works driver in 2016, Kévin Estre has come full circle. The Frenchman honed his craft as a race 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: ten wins, ten podiums, ten 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” honours. A year later he was ready for overall victory: With nine race wins he eclipsed the opposition. And in 2015 he passed his baptism of fire in the Sports Car World Endurance Championship WEC with flying colours when he crossed the finish line at Spa in third place (GTE-Pro class) at his first outing in the 911 RSR together with Sven Müller. In 2018, Estre celebrated his greatest achievement to date: victory at his home race in Le Mans.
