Porsche Penske Motorsport will field a pair of Porsche 963 Hybrids each in the WeatherTech Championship and WEC. Penske’s dates to 1966 and includes a total of 94 race wins, the most recent seven coming in the WeatherTech Championship with Acura Team Penske from 2018-20. Team Penske and Chip Ganassi Racing were both active in the WeatherTech Championship in 2018 and ’19, but they competed in different classes. “This is going to be the most technologically advanced car that we, Team Penske, have ever raced. Like Penske, Ganassi has been preparing for the LMDh era for the last two years.
