- McGuire, Boyd and Smith team up for third time this year in #22 Oreca 07
United Autosports are preparing for their next race this weekend – the Motul Petit Le Mans, the final round of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
The team are heading back to America to race in both the LMP2 and LMP3 classes with the #22 Oreca 07 for Jim McGuire, Wayne Boyd and Guy Smith and the #2 Ligier JS P320 for Niklas Kruetten, Andy Meyrick and Tom Gamble.
Jim, Wayne and Guy will be entering their third race of the 2021 IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at Road Atlanta this weekend after previously racing at the Sebring 12 Hours and the Six Hours of Watkins Glen, where they finished third. They will be aiming to finish the year on a high in Atlanta.
The Motul Petit Le Mans 10-hour race will get underway on Saturday 13 November at 12:10 local time.
“I’m really excited for Petit Le Mans and to get back into the LMP2 car for the first time since Le Mans. I’ve raced at Road Atlanta once before. It’s such a good track, one of my favourites. We were on the podium last time at Watkins Glen, so we’ll be pushing to be up there again and on the top step this time.”
