United Autosports sells five LMP3 Ligiers
United Autosports have sold five Ligier JS P3 LMP3 cars since becoming UK dealers for Onroak Automotive, with one going to Tockwith Motorsport.
Tockwith will enter the car into the inaugural round of the Prototype Cup at Snetterton this October, with Nigel Moore and Phil Hansen the drivers.
Tockwith plans to use the Bute Motorsport-run series as a stepping stone to the European Le Mans Series. “We have been watching with interest the LMP3 class grow over the last six months,” said owner Simon Moore. “As soon as I heard United Autosports would be UK agents for Onroak Automotive’s LMP3 and CN cars, I was on the phone to Richard [Dean] to see if we could work out a deal for a Ligier JS P3.”
Another of the cars has been sold to American Mike Guasch – who used to race for United Autosports when the team ran the Audi R8 LMS in British GT.
