UNITED AUTOSPORTS GT4 TEAM READY TO FIGHT FOR CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD IN ROUND FOUR AT SPA FRANCORCHAMPS
United Autosports are ready to head to Spa Francorchamps, for the fourth round of 2021 GT4 European Series. Next weekend’s races take the 2021 season over the halfway mark, with United Autosports lying second in the Silver Class Championship, only seven points behind the leaders.
Bailey Voisin and Charlie Fagg head to Spa second in the Drivers’ Championship with only 11 points separating them from regaining the Drivers’ title lead. Bailey and Charlie in the #23 McLaren 570S are determined to take charge of the famous Belgian track and return to the podium once again. Charlie has experienced success at Spa Francorchamps circuit before, claiming pole position in 2018 British GT Championship, in a McLaren 570S.
Gus Bowers and Dean Macdonald will be looking to extract the maximum performance from the #32 after their unfortunate DNF in race one at Zandvoort. Gus and Dean are feeling confident ahead of Spa with the aim of standing on the podium once again after their success at the opening round at Monza. Dean has had previous success at Spa Francorchamps, placing his 2019 British GT Championship McLaren 570S entry car on pole by three tenths, having also won the race the previous year in 2018.
Spa Francorchamps will prove to be a busy and exciting weekend for United Autosports as team owners Zak Brown and Richard Dean are also getting behind the wheel, to drive the #230 McLaren 570S. Zak and Richard will be making their return to GT and modern racing alongside the regular #23 and #32 entries of Bailey, Charlie, Gus and Dean, having focused on historic entries in the past.
Live coverage on the GT4 European Series website and YouTube will be available for Friday’s qualifying and first race. The second race on Saturday will also be available to watch on the above-mentioned streaming platforms.
“I’ve heard such amazing things about this iconic track but after having tested here for the first time, it’s even better in person. I’m looking forward to hunting down the championship lead and I think we should run quite strongly here.”
“Spa is always a highlight for me. It’s an awesome track and one that should suit our car well. Hopefully we can get back to winning ways and create some good momentum for the second half of the season.”
“I’m really looking forward to Spa. It’s past the midpoint of the season now so after some previous bad results hopefully we can start fresh and finish the second half of the season in a strong way.”
“I’m looking forward to Spa, the last time I was here was 2019 and it went pretty well for me. I really like driving the track so can’t wait to get out on it with the team this weekend.”
“I am really excited that Richard and I still have the opportunity to race the McLaren 570S in the GT4 European Series, and especially around Spa Francorchamps. The track is awesome and as team owners we have had some great successes here, so hopefully we can get the same results as drivers this time!”
“I am looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the McLaren 570S GT4 car. It has been a while since I raced a modern car around a track, so I am even more excited that it can be at Spa Francorchamps which is such a famous circuit.”
