British born Andy Meyrick is a professional racing driver and coach with a proven track record in delivering outstanding results across a multitude of different series and disciplines.
Andy currently races with United Autosports in the Michelin Le Mans Cup in LMP2 and the Asian Le Mans Series. Outside of his driving duties, Andy is also Director of the BRDC SuperStars programme where he is responsible for all aspects of managing and training some of the UK’s most promising young drivers, something he is extremely passionate about.
Throughout his career, Andy’s versatility as a driver has seen him enjoy success across the board. He won an impressive seven races out of 12 in the British Formula 3 Championship in 2008. He then went on to enhance his reputation even further by securing a podium finish in his first race in the US – the 12 Hours of Sebring – before driving to fourth place in his first Le Mans race, winning the LMP1 Privateer class and being voted the top rookie overall.
Andy has been a factory driver for Aston Martin, Mazda and Bentley, along with a variety of privateer teams. It was during his time with Bentley in 2014 that he helped them secure their first win on British soil in the Blancpain Endurance Series with Bentley GT3; a car he had a big hand in developing.
His significant achievements that same year saw Andy honoured by the BRDC, who awarded him with the prestigious John Cobb Trophy. The accolade was awarded for those who have achieved success of outstanding character, and Andy joined the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Nigel Mansell and Dario Franchitti as winners.
Like any racing driver, Andy has had his fair share of challenges throughout his career but with multiple victories, poles and podiums to his name he has shown great determination to come out on top. His love and passion for racing and coaching have always shone through, and he continues to deliver results on track, as well as helping the next generation off it.
