Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

United Au­tosports has con­firmed its two-car line-up for the in­au­gu­ral Pro­to­type Cup race at Snet­ter­ton in Oc­to­ber.

The An­glo-amer­i­can team will field for­mer world GT cham­pion Mat­teo Bobbi and Jay Palmer in its first Ligier JS P3 – as re­vealed in Mo­tor­sport News back in July. The sec­ond car will be crewed by his­toric rac­ing duo Richard Meins and Shaun Lynn. The car will run in a Gulf Oils liv­ery ( as pic­tured left).

Meins said: “I have driven var­i­ous GT3 cars but the Ligier is a step fur­ther and a re­ally ex­cit­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. It is such a re­spon­sive car with masses of grip and looks great.

“Shaun and I have raced against each other for years, but never to­gether, so it should be a fun ex­pe­ri­ence.”
