Opening round of 2021 European Le Mans Series begins at Barcelona Michelin Le Mans Cup season begins in Spain
United Autosports will return to the European Le Mans Series for their sixth season as both reigning LMP2 and LMP3 champions after their record-breaking year last year.
In the #2 Ligier JS P320 for 2021 will be returning LMP3 champions Wayne Boyd and Rob Wheldon. Both Wayne and Rob raced for United Autosports in the Asian Le Mans Series in February, with Wayne winning his second LMP3 championship in less than six months. They will be joined by 2020 Le Mans Cup vice champion Edouard Cauhaupe with the aim of retaining the ELMS LMP3 title at the end of the year.
Wayne Boyd: “I’m really looking forward to the ELMS season opener at Barcelona. It’s been a busy year already for me with plenty of track time so hopefully we can hit the ground running. We’re coming back in as the reigning champions, so we know what we need to do and I’m confident in our line-up. That added with the improvements the United guys have made on our car over the winter. We’ll be pushing for the win and aim to have as strong a season as we did last year.”
United Autosports Michelin Le Mans Cup team will see John Schauerman and Wayne Boyd return to the #23 Ligier JS P320.
Wayne Boyd: “I really enjoy driving with John and I can’t wait to get back to the Le Mans Cup. We finished last season really strong, so our plan is to continue that momentum into this year. The United guys have worked hard over the winter to improve our car further so I’m positive of strong results for us from round one.”
