Wayne Boyd On Way Back To Monza

Round 2 of E.L.M. Series.

United Autosports are preparing for round two of the European Le Mans Series in Monza, Italy this weekend (11-13 May). They are hoping to build on what they learnt at the opening round at Paul Ricard last month.

The ELMS LMP2 team suffered bad luck with a puncture early on for Phil Hanson and Bruno Senna. This weekend Phil will be joined by his full season team mate Filipe Albuquerque in the #22 Ligier JS P217. Will Owen, Hugo de Sadeleer and Wayne Boyd will also be aiming to improve this weekend in the #32 Ligier JS P217– Wayne scoring the LMP3 pole position for the team at the same event 12 months ago.

The Monza weekend begins on Friday 11th May with Michelin Le Mans Cup free practice at 10:30. The two-hour Michelin Le Mans Cup race will be held on Saturday 12th May at 16:00, with the 4 Hours of Monza beginning at 12:30 on Sunday 13th May.

Wayne Boyd (GB), driver #32, United Autosports: Born: Belfast, Northern Ireland. Lives: Templepatrick, Northern Ireland. Age: 27 “I’m really looking forward to round two of the ELMS at Monza. I qualified on pole there last year in LMP3 so it’s a track I feel confident at and enjoy driving. We all showed strong pace at Paul Ricard but with a few issues we didn’t get the result we deserved so I’m hopeful we can go to Monza and show what we’re capable of. From a personal point of view, I feel much more confident driving the LMP2 car after round one so I plan to hit the ground running.”
