Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Reign­ing LMP3 cham­pion Chris­tian Eng­land will de­fend his ti­tle with new team-mates this year af­ter join­ing up with sin­gle-seater driver Wayne Boyd and Mark Pat­ter­son.

Eng­land will re­main with the An­glo-amer­i­can United Au­tosports team for a sec­ond term in the Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries, but will switch to the sis­ter car for his ti­tle de­fence.

Eng­land, who re­turned to racing last sea­son af­ter a 13-year lay-off, won last year’s P3 crown along­side Alex Brun­dle and Mike Guasch.

The deal also marks North­ern Ir­ish­man Boyd’s sec­ond cam­paign in Euro­pean sportscar racing.

“Last year was such a phe­nom­e­nal sea­son, but I’m re­ally look­ing for­ward to join­ing Mark and Wayne,” said Eng­land. “There is such a good in­tra-team friend­ship and ri­valry from last year and we all get along great.

“It will be tough to sur­pass last sea­son, but our aim has to be to try and win more races.”

Boyd added: “I’m over the moon to be do­ing ELMS again, and to be racing with Chris­tian in­stead of against him. Our car had some bad luck last year but we know we have the pace.”
