United Autosports have unveiled young talent Frederick Lubin as the final driver in their high-speed 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship line-up.

The ambitious 18-year-old, who clinched eight podiums and one win in the 2022 Euroformula Open Championship, will join the charge of established United Autosports duo and 2020 WEC champions Phil Hanson and Filipe Albuquerque in the #22 ORECA 07 with their sights set on winning trophies, celebrating on the podium and claiming the world title.

Following experience in Formula 4 (2020) British Formula 3 (2021) and Euroformula (2022), British driver Lubin decided to explore a move from single seaters to sportscars. He impressed United Autosports CEO Richard Dean and the team engineers on a test day in Portimão in 2022, and now he joins the Yorkshire-based team for his first endurance racing season – making his debut at WEC Sebring next month.

Frederick Lubin: “I’m super excited to drive for United Autosports this year – I’ll be in the #22 car in the World Endurance Championship with Phil Hanson and Filipe Albuquerque. I can’t wait to get started … I think it’s going to be an incredible year. Massive thank you to Richard [Dean] for giving me the opportunity, and the rest of the United Autosports team – I’ll see you in Sebring.”

Richard Dean: “The WEC gets stronger and more competitive each year, but we have a driver line up in both our cars which are capable of winning. Car #22 has our previous WEC titles winners in Phil and Filipe and an exciting young talent in Freddie. We expect to be fighting for podiums at each event.”
