Hanley is a familiar face in the United Autosports garage, having contested three FIA World Endurance Championship races with the team in 2023, in place of full-season drivers with clashing commitments. On his team debut, Hanley celebrated on the podium at the 6 Hours of Portimão - simultaneously winning the Goodyear Wingfoot award which is presented to the driver with the fastest average lap times over a double stint in the LMP2 class.
“It’s great to be part of United Autosports’ first full season in IMSA next year,” says Hanley. “I had a great feeling with the team in the few races I did this year and I’m really excited to see what we can achieve in 2024.”
“Ben [Hanley] is a quality professional with a ton of IMSA and LMP experience,” says United Autosports CEO Richard Dean. “We have wanted to work with Ben for quite some time now and we have had him in a United car sporadically this year with great success. We now have the chance to turn that into a full season working together alongside Ben Keating and Alex Quinn. This is a formidable line up and underlines how seriously we are taking our full season IMSA programme next year.”
