With an impressive resume spanning the globe, Brazilian driver Felipe Nasr begins his second season with Team Penske in 2023 as he will race the No. 7 LMDh for Porsche Penske Motorsport (PPM) in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. The 30-year-old native of Brasilia, Brazil brings a wealth of success and experience to the Porsche 963 hybrid Protype, driving alongside Matt Campbell in the No. 7 entry.

With two IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship Prototype class titles under his belt (2018 and 2021), Nasr has already established himself as a consistent winner and champion. He joined Team Penske in 2022, competing with experienced and winning drivers Dane Cameron and Emmanuel Collard in the World Endurance Championship (WEC), as the trio raced in the LMP2 class in three events - at the 1000 Miles of Sebring, at Spa-Francorchamps and at 24 Hours of Le Mans. 

Driving an ORECA 07-Gibson in the WEC LMP2 class, Nasr, Cameron and Collard earned an eighth-place result for Team Penske at Sebring. The team then produced top-five class finishes at Spa (fourth) and at Le Mans (fifth) before focusing on the 2023 season and the PPM program making its debut in the new Grand Touring Prototype (GTP) class this season. 

Prior to becoming one of the world’s elite sports car drivers, Nasr honed his skills in open-wheel racing and advanced through some of the top European development series on his way to competing in Formula One.
