Backed by the formidable Rodin Cars, his partnership with Rodin Motorsport has been a cornerstone of his success. This collaboration is set to reach new heights in the 2024 season, marking a pivotal chapter in Sharp's racing career.
Sharp's motorsport trajectory has been nothing short of a meteoric rise.

This move marks a significant step up for Sharp, but he is no stranger to the challenges and thrills of motorsport. He is set to bring his wealth of experience to the British tracks, some familiar and others new, as he also prepares to tackle European circuits like Spa, Zandvoort, and the Hungaroring.
Looking ahead to the 2024 season, Sharp's enthusiasm is palpable. "Once again I will be racing with Rodin Motorsport, and I owe a huge thanks to David Dicker and everyone at Rodin Cars," he shares. "Rodin played a pivotal role in my F4 title win and has a stellar record in GB3. I am confident that I couldn't be with a better team for my career progression and pursuit of further success.”
Sharp is clear about his goals: "I wouldn’t be racing if I wasn’t aiming to win. Although it's a new category, I am definitely aiming to be at the forefront, fighting for the championship."
Ricky Taylor, the GB3 Team Manager at Rodin Motorsport, reflects on Sharp's development: “Louis has been an incredibly exciting driver to watch. His close work with the team over the past seasons positions him ideally for this transition. As the reigning British F4 Champion, his skills are undeniable. I'm confident he'll adapt swiftly and be a front-runner from the start.”
