United Autosports aim for Title Win at Assen

Wednesday 16th October 2013

United Autosports make their way to Assen, Holland for the final round of the European Supercar Challenge this weekend (19/20 October)

The team currently have a 25 point lead over their nearest rival Jan Versluis in his Ferrari 458 GTE car, something they are hoping to hold onto this weekend in a championship where they have been dominant at almost every round.

The team have a huge challenge to overcome this weekend, with a 60 second success penalty in the pit stop – the maximum enforceable penalty in the championship – due to their three wins out of four races.

Last time out at Spa-Francorchamps, Glynn put the McLaren on the top step of the podium in race one, along with gaining a pole position and a fastest lap. A 50 second success penalty during the pit stop in race two meant third was the best the team could do on a wet track.

The last round of the European Championship will see the winners crowned at the well-known track most famously used for motorbike races, with its mix of super-fast flat out and slow corners providing a challenge to all the drivers.

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports:
“Heading to Assen we are in a really strong position championship wise. I am cautious because there is still a lot to do to secure the overall win but we are hoping our current form will help us get there. Glynn and Jim have been fast, reliable and very motivated from the start of the season to the end. This has in turn motivated the team and I feel we have worked really hard all year to give us a car that has been fast and in consistent points scoring positions. With just one race weekend to go we just have to repeat the job we have been doing all year”
