Duncan Tappy will join United Autosports on its Road to Le Mans team — racing alongside regular driver John Schauerman.
Duncan will be racing the No. 23 Ligier JS P320 in place of Wayne Boyd, who will race for United’s LMP2 team in the Le Mans 24 Hours this year.
Duncan is currently racing for United Autosports ELMS team but has raced at the Road to Le Mans event five times before, including last year with United Autosports. He won the second of the two races in 2018 and finished on the podium in 2016, 2017 and 2019.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the No. 23 car for the Road to Le Mans race,” Tappy said. “A big thank you to Richard and John for drafting me in. After a really strong start to the championship for John and Wayne, I will be pushing like crazy to keep that momentum going for them and I’d like to wish Wayne all the best in the 24-hour race. It’s a race I have had quite a lot of success at in the past, so I can’t wait to see what we can do.”
United Autosports will be running four cars in this year’s Road to Le Mans event. Their regular Le Mans Cup entries of championship leaders, Gerry Kraut and Scott Andrews in the No. 22; Schauerman and Tappy in the No. 23; and Daniel Schneider and Andy Meyrick in the No. 32 will be joined by a fourth car with drivers to be determined.
The Road to Le Mans event acts as round four of the Michelin Le Mans Cup. United Autosports are leading the LMP3 championship with Kraut and Andrews, and are also in third place with Schauerman and Boyd.
