Phil Hanson bids for a second consecutive ELMS title in 2021 with United Autosports

Hanson will lead the #22 Oreca 07 in his fourth year with United. Having made his ELMS début at Silverstone in April 2017, Phil has now contested a total of 20 ELMS races – all in the LMP2 category.

He scored his first podium at the Red Bull Ring in 2018 and maiden victory at Spa-Francorchamps the same year. In total, Phil has recorded 10 podiums including six outright race wins.

Having finished fifth and fourth in the 2018 and ’19 standings, Phil won the title with co-driver Filipe Albuquerque by 39-points in 2020.

The 2021 European Le Mans Series begins in April at Barcelona (SP), before heading to the Red Bull Ring (A), Monza (IT), Paul Ricard (FRA), Spa (BEL) and Portimão (POR).

Phil commented: “I’m pleased to be entering the ELMS again next season with United Autosports. Following my WEC announcement last week, I’m really looking forward to competing in Europe with the team I won both championships with this year.”
