Wayne Boyd to Asian Le Mans Series on 24th November

The first round of the Asian Le Mans Series begins on 24 November at Shanghai in China. The series then visits Fuji (Japan), Buriram (Thailand) and Sepang (Malaysia).

Wayne Boyd, Chris Buncombe and Garett Grist will take the United Autosport LMP3 to the Asian Le Mans Series.

Wayne Boyd, driver, United Autosports: “I’m so excited to be racing in Asia and to be back with United Autosports. I really wasn’t expecting the call up, but I can’t wait for the opportunity. We have a good line up and I think we have a serious chance at the championship, which is our aim. I’ve never raced at any of these circuits before, but I’m ready for the challenge.”

Zak Brown, Team Owner and Chairman, United Autosports: “I’m really pleased Garett and Wayne are returning to the team for our Asian campaign. Garett was a great addition to our European team, joining us this year and fighting for the LMP3 Championship till the end. Wayne has great LMP3 experience and it will be good to welcome Chris to the team too. He is a proven race winner in prototypes and has won Le Mans, it doesn’t get any harder than that.”

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports: “I worked with Chris many years ago when I was running Team JLR in Vauxhall Juniors and he has come a long way since those days. I’m looking forward to working with him again – he definitely has some prototype experience to bring to the team, which is always beneficial. Bringing Garett back to the team is a good addition too. He has fit in really well since joining us at the start of our European season back in April. Wayne will also bring his LMP3 experience with him so I think this is a very good line up and we are aiming for the championship win.”
