United Autosports Press Release
- United Autosports return to championship to defend title
- Full season of racing for Phil Burgan for first time in eight years
- First time Audi R8 LMS ultra competes in a full season of GT Cup
The team will return to the series to defend the title they won during the final round of the 2014 championship at Oulton Park last month.
Next year will also mark the first time the Audi R8 LMS ultra will compete in a full season of the GT Cup championship.
“I’m really looking forward to a full season of GT3 racing in 2015 with the great team at United Autosports. After a long layoff from racing it has been a bit of a baptism of fire getting up to speed with the Audi in the short amount of track time spent so far. However the ingredients are all there to get the best out of the car and myself going forwards.”
Zak Brown, Team Owner and Chairman, United Autosports:
“I’m thrilled the team is entering the GT Cup again. It will be great for the team to return to the series and defend their championship. The Audi is a great car and Phil did a really good job at Oulton Park so I’m confident he will be challenging for wins and the title.”
Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“It’s great to have Phil back with the team for 2015. He did a great job at Oulton Park, finishing on the podium during his first time out racing the Audi. The car is much different to what he is used to but with a decent amount of track time under his belt, I have no doubt he will be challenging for wins from the first round.”
