GT Cup: United Autosports Audi R8 LMS ultra shake down at Blyton Park

By Johan Laubscher

United Autosports was at Blyton Park this week for a shake down of their Audi R8 LMS ultra following its winter rebuild.

The team is busy preparing the car for a season in the GT Cup Championship. At the end of 2014 it was announced that Phil Burgan will be driving the Audi in the series this year. He debuted in the car during the final round of the 2014 season where he finished on the class podium during the first race at Oulton Park.

United Autosports arrives in 2015 as the reigning GT Cup champions, after winning the title with Jim Geddie in a McLaren MP4-12C GT3 last year.

The team's Audi R8 LMS ultra is also sporting a new livery which will be revealed soon.

They will now be heading to a three-day test at Cartagena next week.

The 2015 GT Cup Championship will get underway at Donington from 25-26 April.
