United Autosports has got two more cars on the track for the European Le Mans Series and Michelin Le Mans Cup seasons.
Both cars will be the brand new Ligier JS P320, of which the team has acquired a bunch.
The ELMS part will be run by Jim McGuire, Matt Bell and Andrew Bentley. McGuire and Bell has been racing together for three years in the Michelin Le Mans Cup, but the former has chosen to step up for a new challenge.
This will be the 10th season for Bell at UA, where he has been driving everything from GT to LMP cars.
Bentley will have he first full season in the ELMS, but made his debut already last year, after Mike Guasch got injured at Silverstone. Quite ironically, the teammate to Guasch, Christian England was seriously injured himself at the final round in Portimao, where he sustained several broken bones in his hip and leg area.
The Michelin Le Mans Cup entry will be run by John Schauerman and Wayne Boyd. Schauerman has already done two seasons in the series, racing for Brookspeed International in 2018, while 2019 was for the Cool Racing outfit. His results so far haven’t been anything spectacular, with a 5th place being his best result at Spa Francorchamps in 2019. But his hopes are to get much better results following this switch to United Autosports, and with getting Boyd as his teammate.
Boyd has raced for UA since 2016, with a mix of Michelin Le Mans Cup and European Le Mans Series.
Both series will start their 2020 seasons in the first weekend of April at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.
