United Autosports head to Spa Francorchamps this weekend for the penultimate round of both the European Le Mans Series and the Michelin Le Mans Cup.
The LMP3 team will be aiming high after a disappointing start to their championship defence. The #2 team of Wayne Boyd, Rob Wheldon and Edouard Cauhaupe will be hoping to get on the top step of the podium after some unlucky races to start the season. After two podiums this year, the top step is where they want to finish at the end of the Spa weekend.
The Michelin Le Mans Cup team head to Spa after a mixed weekend at Le Mans. Gerry Kraut and Scott Andrews in the #22 Ligier JS P320 now lie third in the championship standings, with John Schauerman and Wayne Boyd in the #23 just 1.5 points behind them in fourth. Daniel Schneider and Andy Meyrick finished fourth in the opening race of the Le Mans weekend, with all three crews firmly aiming for the podium and race wins at Spa.
The Michelin Le Mans Cup race begins at 15:55 on Saturday 18 September, with the European Le Mans Series race beginning at 11:00 on Sunday 19 September. Both qualifying sessions and races will be live streamed on the Le Mans Cup and ELMS websites.
Wayne Boyd on racing #2 in LMP 3:
“I always look forward to racing at Spa. It’s one of my favourite tracks on the calendar. Last year we had a great race there scoring pole position and the race win, so there’s no reason why we can’t go ahead and do that again this weekend. The season has been a bit tricky for us. Luck hasn’t been on our side. We’ve had two podiums in the last two races, and we would like to get back to winning ways, hopefully at Spa and then at Portimao to finish the season strong.”
Wayne Boyd on racing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup:
“I’m looking forward to getting back to racing with John. I missed the last race with doing the Le Mans 24 Hours, but we’ve had some good results this year. The team have been doing a fantastic job and John has been driving brilliantly so we’d like to continue that momentum. I believe we can get that race win. Spa was our strongest race last season and we’ve improved a lot since then so that’s our aim for the weekend.”
