JOHN SCHAUERMAN AND WAYNE BOYD RETURN TO UNITED AUTOSPORTS MICHELIN LE MANS CUP TEAM FOR 2021

American racer, Schauerman returns to United Autosports for 2021. ELMS LMP3 Champion, Boyd in double programme. Michelin Le Mans Cup season to begin in April at Barcelona.

United Autosports are delighted to confirm that John Schauerman will return to their Michelin Le Mans Cup team for 2021, racing alongside Wayne Boyd.

John Schauerman first joined United Autosports for the 2020 season and alongside Wayne Boyd scored five top-10 finishes, including two fourth place finishes at Spa and Portimao and a fifth place at the prestigious Road to Le Mans event.

Wayne has been a regular United Autosports driver since 2016 and has recently competed in his 50th race for the team. He is the reigning European Le Mans Series and Asian Le Mans Series LMP3 Champion and will be returning to race alongside John for a second year in the Michelin Le Mans Cup. Wayne will be racing in both the Michelin Le Mans Cup and the European Le Mans Series once again this year.

John and Wayne complete United Autosports Michelin Le Mans Cup driver line up, with the team having previously confirmed that Daniel Schneider and Andy Meyrick would return to the team for 2021, alongside Gerry Kraut and Scott Andrews who will make their United debut.

The 2021 Michelin Le Mans Cup begins in Barcelona, Spain on 16-17 April.

Wayne Boyd “I’m really happy to be back in the Michelin Le Mans Cup with John. I really enjoy working with him and seeing him improve throughout the season was fantastic. He’s a great guy to work with and we get along so well, which always helps. Last year we just kept getting stronger and stronger as the races went on and we were unlucky not to get a couple of podium finishes throughout the year so if we start this season how we finished last, then there’s no reason why we can’t push for podiums and wins this year, which we are certainly capable of. For me personally, it’s great to be doing both championships. It gives me more track time and it allows the team to work on the car set up really well with trying different things. I’m really looking forward to it.”
