British sportscar racer Andy Meyrick is set to make his Asian Le Mans Series (ALMS) debut next year, when the two-round, four-race series gets underway at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi in February.
The 35-year-old will partner with United Autosports European Le Mans Series LMP3 class champion Rob Wheldon, and British GT front runner Ian Loggie, in a three-man United Autosports crew sharing one of the team’s Ligier JS P320 LMP3 prototypes for all of the four-hour races.
It marks a busy start to the season for Meyrick, who will return to the team for a second season in the Michelin Le Mans Cup LMP3 class in the spring, after a strong first season in 2020.
“It’s fantastic to have such a busy programme to kick the 2021 season off with and to be offered the opportunity with United Autosports,” said Andy. “The team has a proven pedigree in this series, and having raced with them throughout 2020, I know their many strengths, so it’s great to have this chance to race with them in the ALMS.”
The 2021 Asian LMS will take place solely at Yas Marina, with the first two rounds taking place on 4-6 February on the venue’s corkscrew lay-out, with the final two rounds happening two weeks later on the Grand Prix circuit.
