United Autosports are pleased to confirm that John Schauerman and Wayne Boyd will return to the team for the 2022 Michelin Le Mans Cup, in what will be their third season together in the championship.
John first joined United Autosports in 2020, racing alongside Wayne, with the pair finishing eighth in the championship with a season best result of fourth place at Spa Francorchamps and Portimao.
In 2021, the pair returned, finishing fifth in the championship with two podiums at Barcelona and Paul Ricard and a fourth place at Monza. Next year they will return with the aim of winning races as well as battling once again for the LMP3 championship title.
The 2022 Michelin Le Mans Cup season begins in April at Paul Ricard, before visiting Imola, Le Mans, Hungaroring, Spa Francorchamps and Portimao.
“I am excited to be racing with United Autosports and to team up with Wayne Boyd again for the 2022 MLMC season. The schedule looks awesome with the addition of Hungaroring and Imola as new tracks for us. We had a great 2021 season with several podiums and a chance at the title going into the final race. With Wayne's excellent driving and coaching, and the work from the whole team to provide a great car setup, we will build on the momentum from last year and fight for more podiums in 2022. I can't wait!”
“I’m so happy to be back with John and United Autosports in the Michelin Le Mans Cup. It’s great for John and I to continue for our third season and to keep the momentum going. John did such a great job this year, his pace and consistency allowed us to always be fighting for the podium each race. I’m sure we can improve further and fight for the championship next year. 2022 will be my seventh full season with United and it goes without saying the car they provide is always the highest standard. They are a fantastic group of people to be with.”
“I’m delighted that John and Wayne will return to the team for a third year in the Michelin Le Mans Cup for 2022. They showed huge progression this year and I’m sure they will only build on that next year.”
“Welcoming John and Wayne back to the team for 2022 made sense, given how much progress John made last year. It was incredible seeing him on the podium during the early part of the season and we are going to be working hard to get him on the podium regularly next season.”
