Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“I’m proud that we can display the Ligier JS2 R for the first time in the UK. It’s a great car and it will be interesting to see the reaction to it. It’s also the first time that we will be representing HRX as the UK agents. Our race team has been using HRX race wear for some time now across all our race activities and it’s great to be able to spread the word about the brand.”
