British GT: United Autosports Audi R8 LMS ultra at the Media Day

By Johan Laubscher

The British GT Championship hosted its official Media Day at Donington Park on Tuesday.

United Autosports took part with their #23 Audi R8 LMS ultra, driven by Mathew Bell and Mark Patterson.

The first test session saw the United Autosports R8 LMS ultra at the top of the time sheets. The second session concluded with third place for the R8 LMS ultra, which was also the position for the United Autosports team in the combined classification for the day. They were a mere 0.061 seconds behind the leading #1 Beechdean AMR Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and the second placed #8 BMW Z4 GT3 from 888. The entire top eleven cars were separated by less than a second.
