British F4 champion Louis Sharp graduates to GB3 with Rodin Motorsport

Reigning British F4 champion Louis Sharp will remain with the Rodin Motorsport team as he graduates to the GB3 Championship in 2024.

The New Zealand racer has been a force to be reckoned with since getting behind the wheel of a single-seater and took championship honours last year in the British F4 Championship. Backed by Rodin Cars, the strong working relationship continues into the upcoming season.

Sharp’s trajectory in motorsport has been impressive, since first joining the team at the start of 2022. Sharp was too young to participate in the opening round of that year’s campaign, but despite this disadvantage, the rookie used all his talent to claim two victories and tally up an impressive amount of points to finish fourth overall. 

Bringing that experience into a sophomore season with the team, Sharp made his intentions clear from the very start. A total of six wins, 14 podiums and two pole positions later, Sharp was crowned the British F4 Champion at the final round. 

Now moving up to GB3 for 2024, he remains with the squad which powered Callum Voisin to the title in 2023. Sharp looks to put all of his experience to good use around the British tracks he is already familiar with, and will have new circuits in Europe to contend with as he heads to Spa, Zandvoort, and the Hungaroring as part of the exciting 2024 package. 

Looking ahead to the 2024 season Sharp said: “Once again I will be racing with Rodin Motorsport and I must thank David Dicker and all those at Rodin Cars for making this possible. Rodin took me to the F4 title and also has a great record in GB3, winning that driver’s title as well as mine in 2023. In terms of career progression and further success, I really could not hope to be with a better team.

“I wouldn’t be racing if I wasn’t aiming to win, so back-to-back titles is certainly the aim. However, it is a new category, so I’ve got to take that into account. Even so, I definitely want to be fighting at the front, and fighting for the championship.”

Rodin Motorsport GB3 Team Manager Ricky Taylor said: “Louis has been one of those drivers in recent years who has been really exciting to watch develop. He has been working closely with the team for a couple of seasons now so he’s well-placed to make this move to a new championship; his experience and skills as the reigning British F4 Champion speaks for itself. I’m confident that he will take to the car well and be a front runner from the very start – I look forward to him getting behind the wheel and for racing to begin.”
