Anglo-American team United Autosports have announced that they will be entering into the 2017 Gulf 12 Hours on 16-17 December.

The team return to Abu Dhabi following two LMP3 podiums in 2016 with Alex Lynn, Shaun Lynn and Richard Meins, who finished second in class, and Stefan Johansson, Jim McGuire, Matt Keegan and Nico Rondet third in class.

Aside from the podiums last year the circuit is no stranger to the United Autosports team having taken a podium finished with Ryan Dalziel, Enzo Potolicchio and Alex Popow in their Audi R8 LMS in 2012.

Team Owner and Managing Director of United Autosports, Richard Dean is already looking forward to the race, “The Gulf 12 Hours is a fantastic event and one we are proud to be involved with.

“We had a good week there last year scoring a double podium and the change in the regulations for the LMP3 cars for this year’s event will make the competition even more exciting.”

The driver line-up is yet to be revealed by the team.
