Gary Hirsch was born in Geneva (Switzerland) in 1987 and holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (HEC).
Since sitting behind the wheel for the first time at 12 years old, Gary’s love for speed and beautiful cars has driven him in his pursuit of success. From winning his first trophy in Go-Kart Gary has gone on to enjoy a 14 year career, from Formula Renault to GT cars. In 2008 he gets the opportunity to demonstrate his skills in a Ferrari Formula 1 test. In 2013 he becomes European Le Mans Series Champion in LMPC Class. He finally takes part to the 24H of Le Mans in 2014 in LMP2 on a winning car, in his one of a kind personally-designed helmet, pushing to turn his recent hat trick victory. Gary finally becomes 2015 European Le Mans Champion in the LMP2 class with Greaves Motorsport.
