During the 2022 season Duncan will be racing in LMP2 for United Autosports, competing in the European Le Mans Series as well as making a one off IMSA appearance at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring.
Duncan has raced for the team for the last two years, entering the LMP3 class of the ELMS alongside Jim McGuire and Andrew Bentley. This year he will move across to their LMP2 team, racing with Phil Hanson and Tom Gamble with the ELMS championship title firmly the aim. He will also team up with Jim McGuire and Guy Smith in the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring in March.
Duncan said: “I am so excited to be joining the #22 ELMS crew in LMP2, sharing the car with Phil and Tom. They were both super-fast last year and they did a mega job so I’m hoping to be able to build on that and contribute to the championship challenge. I’m also very excited to be joining Jim McGuire and Guy Smith at Sebring for the 12-hour race. I’ll be making my IMSA debut and it’s a race I’ve always wanted to do, so can’t wait to turn some laps on the iconic circuit.
“I want to thank Zak and Richard and of course Jim for making this happen. I can’t wait to get stuck into a new challenge. 2022 is going to be an exciting year.”
United Autosports is one of the largest motorsport companies in the UK and competes globally in different categories across the world. Based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, the company is co-owned by McLaren CEO Zak Brown and former racing driver Richard Dean.
Zak said: “I’m really pleased for Duncan that he can make the step across to our LMP2 team for 2022. Along with Tom and Phil, they are a great line up so I’m excited to see how they get on.”
Richard said: “I’ve known Duncan for a long time now so to see him set to race in our LMP2 car is fantastic. I must of course thank Jim for agreeing to let me put Duncan in our LMP2 car. It’s a great opportunity for him and along with Phil and Tom, I’m sure we will be fighting to get our championship title back.”
