LMP3 team to continue championship fight at penultimate round.

United Autosports head to the legendary Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium this weekend for the penultimate rounds of the European Le Mans Series and the Michelin Le Mans Cup (20-22 September).

This year at Spa, the LMP3 team will be hoping to replicate their win from 2018. The #2 Ligier JS P3 of Garett Grist, Wayne Boyd and Tommy Erdos lies third in the LMP3 standings after scoring a third consecutive podium at Silverstone last time out. The trio are aiming for another good result to build on their championship challenge at Spa. The #3 Ligier JS P3 will be piloted by Christian England and Andrew Bentley, as Andrew stands in for an injured Mike Guasch following his accident at Silverstone. The whole team would like to wish Mike all the very best with his recovery back at home in the USA.

The Spa weekend also sees the return of the Michelin Le Mans Cup after a two-month break. Jim McGuire and Matt Bell will be aiming to continue their good pace from Barcelona in the #22 AERO Ligier JS P3, while Rob Hodes and Garett Grist will be hoping for some good results in the #23 Ligier JS P3. Due to Mike Guasch’s absence, the team will not be running the #24 car at Spa.

The Spa race weekend begins on Friday 20th September with Michelin Le Mans Cup free practice one at 10:15. The two-hour Michelin Le Mans Cup race will be held on Saturday 21st September at 15:55, with the 4 Hours of Spa Francorchamps beginning on Sunday 22nd September at 12:30.

Wayne Boyd(GB), driver car #2, United Autosports: Born: Belfast, Northern Ireland. Lives: Templepatrick, Northern Ireland. Age: 28 “I always really look forward to racing at Spa. It is one of my favourite circuits on the calendar. We come to Spa on the back of three consecutive podiums which has put us third in the championship which is great, but we obviously want to win. The last two rounds we have been very unlucky with first lap incidents, which puts us on the back foot. For us to be able to drag the car back up to third shows the pace we have, so hopefully, with a little bit of luck, we can get a win at Spa and push for the championship. I’d also like to wish Mike [Guasch] a speedy recovery too. It’s a shame we can’t continue to race in the Michelin Le Mans Cup, especially after our podium at Barcelona, but I wish him all the best for his recovery.”
