United Autosports have confirmed that Paul Di Resta will join the team once again for the Sebring 12 Hours and the Six Hours of Watkins Glen.
Paul will race alongside Phil Hanson and Bruno Senna in the second and third rounds of the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup, part of the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Paul joined United Autosports for the first time at Daytona last month, making his sports car debut in the Rolex 24 At Daytona. He raced alongside Bruno and United’s regular LMP2 drivers, Will Owen and Hugo de Sadeleer, finishing fourth. The quartet led the race at one stage and were firmly within sight of the podium until a clutch issue hampered their progress.
Phil, Bruno and Paul will take part in the official Sebring test on 22-23 February, before returning to Florida for the race on 16-17 March.
United Autosports announced last month that they would race in the four endurance events that make up the Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup with Phil Hanson and Bruno Senna. Unfortunately, due to the FIA WEC date change for the Fuji round, Bruno is no longer able to race at Petit Le Mans in October. Phil’s team mates for the final round of the series at Road Atlanta will be announced in due course.
