United Autosports sign Finn Gehrsitz to complete their final European Le Mans Series LMP3 entry.
The 17 year old German will share the #2 Ligier JS P320 alongside Bailey Voisin and Josh Caygill throughout the six race European Le Mans Series which begins at Paul Ricard on 11-12th April.
Finn Gehrsitz became the youngest Michelin Le Mans Cup driver last year, when he signed for Phoenix Racing at the age of 16. A successful debut campaign brought Finn his first pole position in a prototype, as well as a top four finish in the championship standings.
All three drivers in the #2 United Autosports Liger JS P320 have shared GT racing experience. Whilst Bailey drove for the team last year in the GT4 European Series, winning both Drivers’ and Teams’ Championship, Josh and Finn have both raced the Porsche 911 GT3 in a variety of championships.
United Autosports set their sights on preparing for the prologue and opening round of the 2022 European Le Mans Series at Paul Ricard with all their driver line-ups for this season now confirmed.
“I´m really looking forward to the season together with United Autosports and would like to say a big thank you to Zak and Richard for believing in me. Driving for United Autosports has become a dream come true and I am already looking forward to a successful future together.”
“It’s exciting that we now have all our car line-ups finalised ahead of the start of the 2022 European Le Mans Series. Finn looks to be a real talent based on his previous successes and I am looking forward to take that further step with us.”
“On behalf of the team I’d like to welcome our new driver, Finn to United Autosports and I am sure that we will have a successful partnership with him and his co-drivers in the #2 LMP3 Ligier that we will be racing in the European Le Mans Series. Finn performed exceptionally throughout our winter evaluation tests that we ran and I’m excited about the potential we have with him.”
