United Autosports drivers quotes before the Red Bull Ring Round

LMC - 17/07/2017

In only a few days the Michelin Le Mans Cup will head to Austria for the third round of the 2017 season. Here are United Autosports drivers quotes .

Jim McGuire (US), driver car #22, United Autosports:
“I’m really excited for Red Bull Ring. I’ve never been there but I can’t wait to see it – I’ve heard lots of good things about the track and I can’t wait to get back into the United Autosports Ligier JS P3. It will be awesome.”
Matt Bell (GB), driver car #22, United Autosports:
“I enjoyed going to Red Bull Ring last year. It’s a good little circuit. Our main focus will be giving Jim as many laps as possible as it’s one of the only circuits this year we haven’t been able to test at and he’s never raced here before so that will be our priority in testing. It should be a good weekend.”
Richard Meins (GB), driver car #23, United Autosports:
“The Red Bull Ring is another great track we get to visit and I can't wait to sample the atmosphere and scenery. We will be looking to improve on our Le Mans showing and the fickle weather you get in the Styrian mountains may well play a part. Like Le Mans, this track in its earlier form was the stuff of legends and Gulf liveried cars are part of that history. We may not be able to match Pedro Rodriguez in the 1971 1,000kms race where he pulled back a two and a half lap deficit to win in his Gulf Porsche 917-in the wet, but we will give it our best shot!”
Shaun Lynn (GB), driver car #23, United Autosports:
“I’m looking forward to racing at the Red Bull Ring. I’ve never raced there before but I’ve heard it’s a great place. Our pace is getting better each time we go out in the Ligier. I’m loving driving the car and getting to race on all the great European circuits is fantastic.”

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“We had another great result at Red Bull Ring last year, winning for the third time in our Ligier JS P3 and there’s no reason why we shouldn’t have the same aim this time round with both our LMP3 and LMP2 cars. I’m looking forward to seeing how our Michelin Le Mans Cup team gets on too. The pace of both cars is improving each time they go out so I’m hopeful of a good weekend all round.”
