“I’m super excited for year three of ELMS with United Autosports to add to the previous seasons in the Le Mans Cup and in Asia and IMSA. I’d say all the championships I’ve done with the team have been amazing, I’ve loved every second of it. ELMS will be great, visiting some new tracks. Back with Duncan and Andrew as well, we are aiming to be competitive and have a blast doing it.”
“Returning to United Autosports and ELMS for my third season is just awesome. Being a part of this team is a real pleasure and I’m really looking forward to seeing what progress we will make during the 2022 season. I know that Jim and Andrew are even more motivated than ever to have a really strong year. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
“To be back with United Autosports for my third full year is a great feeling. Jim, Duncan and I have really become a solid team, enjoying our weekends and pushing each other to improve every race. We’ve had some great results over the past two seasons and we are all determined to push hard for some more.”
“I’m really pleased to welcome Jim, Duncan and Andrew back to the team for 2022. They are a consistent driver line up and have settled into the ELMS series well so I’m hopeful of some good results this year.”
“Jim will be heading into his sixth season with the team in 2022, he has been a positive influence in our team’s growth and success and is very much part of the family. We have seen so much improvement from him over the years and he keeps pushing himself for further improvements. I’m excited to see how Jim, Duncan and Andrew get on this year, they all work very hard and at the same time have fun together and they deserve to have successful season.”
