RACED IN: ELMS - LMP3
Finn Gehrsitz is a German racing driver who made history at 16 years old as the youngest competitor to race in the Michelin Le Mans Cup.
Finn Gehrsitz started karting at five years old, inspired by his father’s penchant for rally driving. What started as a hobby quickly became a passion for the young German, fuelled by an innate love of speed.
In 2020, Finn made the transition from karting to racing, kicking off his career with two wins in the Porsche Super Sports Cup.
The following year, Gehrsitz signed with Phoenix Racing to contend the Michelin Le Mans Cup (LMP3). His debut race with the team in Barcelona 2021 made it into the history books, with Gehrsitz becoming the youngest ever driver to contend the championship.
In March 2022, Finn Gehrsitz was announced as part of the driver line-up for United Autosports in the 2022 European Le Mans Series (LMP3).
Finn looks to be a real talent based on his previous successes.

EUROPEAN LE MANS SERIES
The debut trio had a great start to the season at Paul Ricard, crossing the line in third place before being promoted to second place after a post-race disqualification for Inter Europol (read the race report). At the final round of the season in Portimao, the car #2 crew returned to the podium with another P2 finish
When he’s not in the driver’s seat, Finn can be found enjoying the great outdoors near his hometown of Stuttgart - whether cycling, boxing or skiing. He also enjoys cooking, although a team challenge at Monza suggested his pizza tossing skills need some work. Watch the video.
