number of years in various GT3 and prototype machinery in British GT, Blancpain

Endurance Series, GT Asia, GT Open, Spa 24 Hours and most recently the Michelin

Le Mans Cup. Duncan has known United Autosports co-owner, Richard Dean for

many years, racing against his team in the Formula Ford Championship 15 years

ago.

The ELMS begins in Barcelona, Spain on 30-31 March with the official two-day

prologue ahead of the first race weekend on 3-5 April. The drivers for United

Autosports second ELMS LMP3 car will be announced in due course.

“I’m so happy to be joining United Autosports. I have known Richard [Dean] since

our Formula Ford days back in 2005. To see the growth of United Autosports has

been amazing and to now be a part of the team is really exciting for me. Also, to be

making the step up to ELMS after two years in the Michelin Le Mans Cup is perfect

timing. I’m really looking forward to a great year with Jim and Andrew."

Zak Brown, Team Owner and Chairman, United Autosports:

“I’m pleased to see Duncan join our team for 2020. He is a great racer and I’m sure

will bring a lot of experience to our ELMS team.”

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:

“I’ve known Duncan for many years so to have him finally join United Autosports is

fantastic. He will be a great addition to the team as he is fast, reliable and a good

guy to have around. He is very experienced so will no doubt contribute to the

development of our ELMS LMP3 team.”
