United’s regular MLMC #22 team Gerry Kraut and Scott Andrews are unable to compete in Aragon due to clashing business and racing commitments.
Yorkshireman Caygill, a former Supersport biker and Bronze-graded driver, celebrated two LMP3 podium finishes with United Autosports in the 2022 European Le Mans Series, taking second place at the 4 Hours of Le Castellet and third place at the season finale in Portimão [pictured].
“I’m so excited to get back in the car” says Caygill. “It feels like coming home, driving for United Autosports again. Thank you to Richard [Dean] and Charlie [Kemp] for the call and opportunity. Now we focus on a good result.” Find out more about Josh
“It’s great to be back with United Autosports and teaming up with Josh” says Patterson. “We both have experience in the United LMP3 car, so the goal is to deliver a strong race for the team.” Find out more about Garnet.
“It’s a shame that Gerry and Scott aren’t able to make the Aragon Round” says Le Mans Cup Team Manager Charlie Kemp. “Gerry has business engagements that he has been unable to move and Scott has a race in the US, so when the Imola Round was cancelled and rescheduled to Aragon, the regular #22 car line-up was off the grid.”
“Thankfully, we have a competitive line-up in Josh and Garnet who are able to step in”, Kemp continues. “Both drivers have a proven track record in the United Autosports Ligier JS P320 … it’s a great combination, and an amazing opportunity to continue showing what our Le Mans Cup LMP3 car can do.”
The Aragon Round of the 2023 Michelin Le Mans Cup is on Friday 25th August, commencing at 17:40 CEST (16:40 BST). As always, the racing action is streamed live and free on YouTube – and you can stay up to date with the team on social @unitedautosports.
