United Autosports will be racing in the 2017 Le Mans 24 Hours along with having entries in the European Le Mans Series in both the LMP2 and LMP3 classes. They will also enter two cars in the Michelin Le Mans Cup.
Jim McGuire, CEO, AERO Advanced Paint Technology:
“I’m really pleased to be able to introduce AERO Advanced Paint TechnologyTM into the UK & Europe in partnership with United Autosports as well. The Ligier JS P217 and Ligier JS P3 are such magnificent cars and our AERO Advanced Paint TechnologyTM gives us a competitive advantage through appearance, durability and weight savings. And, moreover, our environmentally friendly paint is better for Europe and better for the planet. United Autosports will be a great platform to showcase this great technology in Europe, while offering an exciting opportunity to prove its performance with an exceptional team. I’m thrilled to be able to combine performance and innovation on a continent rich with motorsports history.”
Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“I’m really pleased to be able to announce United Autosports as the UK agents for AERO Advanced Paint Technology. We first used AERO on our LMP3 cars at the end of last year in the Abu Dhabi 12 hours and you really can tell the difference between this and any other product on the market. The finish is far superior with a real gloss that is impossible to achieve when you wrap a car in the vinyl products that are on the market. AERO is easy to apply, the car doesn’t need to go in a paint shop and it is ultra tough, it can be polished unlike standard wrapping vinyl and it lasts much longer than the alternative solutions out there.”
