United Autosports will contest the Macau GT Cup for the fourth consecutive year, fielding two Gulf-liveried McLaren MP4-12Cs.

There were over 70 applications for the event around the streets of Macau, with United Autosports being one of only two British teams competing.

Richard Meins and Danny Watts, regulars of United Autosports, will contest the 60th running of the Macau Grand Prix and will look to continue the team’s strong form with a fourth consecutive podium, with Watts standing on the rostrum for the past three years.

“We are really pleased that our entry into the Macau GT Cup has been accepted for 2013,” said team owner Richard Dean. “We love the event and we seem to go really well here, having had 3 podium finishes in the past 3 years we have entered. We have a really strong driver line up in Richard and Danny so fingers crossed it will be a good event. Not only is the track a challenge for the drivers, but logistically, it is a challenge for us going to Macau. Loading the cars and getting all the staff to Hong Kong, then a ferry across to Macau itself is not an easy task, but it is well worth it. It is one of the highlights on the United calendar.”
