Daniel Schneider, Andy Meyrick and Oliver Jarvis will bid for LMP2 Pro-Am success in the 2024 European Le Mans Series (ELMS), in one of three confirmed entries for United Autosports (see entry list).
This will mark Schneider and Meyrick’s fifth consecutive year of racing together, and their second ELMS Pro-Am season, following two podium celebrations in 2023 with United Autosports (4 Hours of Aragón and 4 Hours of Spa-Francorchamps).
“I’m thrilled and excited to race for United Autosports again,” says Schneider. “We have a strong package to fight for the championship and I won’t give anything less than my best to achieve that. Thank you to United for having me once again.”
Schneider, of Brazil, and former “Bentley Boy” Meyrick, first linked up together at United in 2020, contesting the Michelin Le Mans Cup until last year when they joined the competitive LMP2 Pro-Am class.
“Really excited to be back with United Autosports for 2024,” says Meyrick. “We got stronger and stronger throughout 2023, we’ve got the best team behind us, and we’re looking to be at the sharp end for the whole of next season.”
The established duo will be joined by Oliver Jarvis - former Audi factory driver, Le Mans winner, 2022 IMSA DPi champion and 2023 ELMS LMP2 Pro Vice-Champion.
“I’m delighted to be returning to the ELMS with United Autosports after a successful 2023 season,” says Olly Jarvis. “Having worked with Daniel [Schneider] at a test in Bahrain, I know he has the potential and drive to win races and fight for the championship. I’m confident we can have a successful year together.”
In 2023, Jarvis contested his first full European Le Mans Series season, taking victory in 50% of races with co-drivers Phil Hanson and Marino Sato (4 Hours of Aragon, 4 Hours of Algarve and 4 Hours of Portimao), as well as celebrating a win and a further podium in the 2023 FIA World Endurance Championship (LMP2 class).
“We really enjoyed the Pro/Am challenge last season,” says Richard Dean, United Autosports CEO. “It is such an exciting class to race in. Daniel made strong progress, claiming his first podium just three rounds into his debut LMP2 season. Together with established teammate Andy Meyrick and ELMS LMP2 Pro vice-champion Oliver Jarvis, we start in a very strong place for 2024. We hope to celebrate many more Pro-Am podiums and, of course, our first class win.”
In 2024, United Autosports will also race two entries in the European Le Mans Series LMP2 Pro Class, with Ben Hanley and Filipe Albuquerque announced and more driver reveals pending. Stay up to date on social @unitedautosports.
