Will Owen – Driver
“We are here in Barcelona getting ready for the third round of the ELMS Championship after completing the 24 Hours of Le Mans a few weeks ago. I’m excited to be back with United Autosports and my teammates, Alex and Ryan and to have another go at a podium. We’ve had good pace this year, and flawless pit stops combined with good driving. We need to put all those components together and see what we can do in this four-hour race. This is my first time at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and I like it. It’s tight and technical and difficult to manage the heat with the tires, which is probably the biggest challenge for everyone. I think we have a good handle on things going into the race and I’m looking forward to our results.”
