Racing career

For Garnet, the racetrack was part of growing up, watching his father race historic cars. It wasn’t long before the future racer wanted to get behind the wheel himself, and so his karting journey began.

In 2011, Garnet began racing in single seaters, winning his first accolade just two years later in the 2013 New South Wales Formula Race Car Championship where he clinched four pole positions and won 11 out of 15 races.

The following year, in 2014, the Australian driver progressed to Formula 3 where he stormed to victory and won the championship with 10 wins and 18 podiums over 20 races in the series.

The next step on the journey was endurance prototype racing. In 2016, Garnet entered the 2016 Asian le Mans Sprint Cup, claiming third place in the championship. Fast forward to 2022 and he was making a name for himself in the European LMP3 arena, racing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup with United Autosports.

For the 2023 season, Garnet contested the Asian Le Mans Series with United Autosports in the #23 car with Yasser Shahin and Oliver Jarvis, scooping a P2 finish at the 4 Hours of Abu Dhabi. Patterson also made a one-off appearance in the Le Mans Cup, teaming up with Yorkshireman Josh Caygill at the Aragon Round.

On the same weekend, Patterson stepped into the European Le Mans Series line-up, racing the #23 ORECA 07 with Paul di Resta and Guy Smith (read more).

The weekend started strongly, with Bronze-graded co-driver Josh Caygill taking pole position, however an issue during the race ultimately saw Garnet Patterson cross the line P11.
