UNITED AUTOSPORTS ‘LEEDS TO LE MANS’ 24 HOUR JOURNEY TO FEATURE ON SKY SPORTS ACTION

  • Relive United Autosports’ successful debut at the Le Mans 24 Hours
  • Hour long programme to follow the team and their fans from Leeds to Le Mans
  • United Autosports finished fifth overall and fourth in the LMP2 class

United Autosports will feature in an hour-long programme – Leeds to Le Mans – reliving their successful debut in the Le Mans 24 Hours earlier this year.

The programme focusses on the team’s preparations and features a group of United’s most loyal fans as they also travel from Yorkshire to Le Mans to support the team. As the two groups prepare for the world-famous endurance race back at their home town in Leeds, we follow two very different journeys to make it on the grid for the start and finish of the 85th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours.

Leeds to Le Mans was filmed by Pit Lane Productions for Sky and will be shown at the following times on Sky Sports Action:

Wednesday 30th August 5pm

Thursday 31st August 8:30pm

Saturday 2nd September 11.20am

Sunday 3rd September 10.30am

Tuesday 5th September 6pm

United Autosports finished fifth overall and fourth in the LMP2 class with their Ligier JS P217 and drivers Will Owen, Hugo de Sadeleer and Filipe Albuquerque. This weekend the trio are entering the fourth round of the European Le Mans Series at Paul Ricard. They are currently second in the LMP2 Championship standings, only four points off the lead after two wins so far this year.

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:

“Le Mans seems like a lifetime ago, but watching the show brought back great memories of what a successful race we had on our debut. The team all worked brilliantly together and the result we got was a fantastic reward for all the hard work that was put into it. It was great to be able to include the fan aspect in the show too as Michael, Gary and the other guys have followed us since the team began racing back in 2010 – and they are from Yorkshire, which made it even more special.”
