Wayne Boyd grew up watching races on TV with his dad. When he was 11, he decided he wanted to get in the hotseat – so his dad bought him a kart and things took off from there.
In 2007, Wayne started competing in single seaters, quickly becoming a regular on the podium and winning the Formula Ford 1600 Northern Ireland in his debut year.
Aged 17, Boyd won the 2008 British Formula Ford Championship, storming to victory with 13 wins in 25 races – plus 14 poles and 14 fastest laps. The same year, he was shortlisted for the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year award.
Over the next eight years, Wayne Boyd raced in a range of championships including British Formula Three, Formula Ford and the U.S. F2000 National Championship.
In 2016, Wayne Boyd signed with United Autosports – a partnership which is now in its eighth year. In 2020, the championship came home with Wayne Boyd, Tom Gamble and Rob Wheldon storming to victory in the European Le Mans Series (LMP3 class), winning three out of five rounds.
The following year, Wayne added the Asian Le Mans Series championship title to his collection, winning three of four rounds with co-drivers Manual Maldonado and Rory Penttinen.
Currently, Wayne Boyd is racing in the 2023 Michelin Le Mans Cup with United Autosports.
He is a real talent and has been one of United’s most successful and adaptable drivers since we started in sportscars.
