“Driving the Audi was without doubt the most fun I have ever had in a race car, it was awesome. I got faster and faster with each run and it’s something I would love to drive in the future, it’s a proper piece of kit. I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone at United. It was great to have this reward for my efforts this year.”
Luke Davenport, Driver, United Autosports:
“The test has been an absolutely brilliant experience. I have been aspiring to drive the Audi ever since I was first introduced to United Autosports during my first race weekend three years ago. The car turned out to be all that I had hoped it would be. I was pleased with my data and I think both Carl and I performed to the team’s expectations. I would like to thank everyone at United for giving me the opportunity to compete in such an awesome piece of kit.”

They have both impressed us this year, not just with the wins but the consistent point scoring and podium positions throughout the season. It was a good way to reward them for winning the team championship for us. They have both expressed an interest in GT racing to me so hopefully this test has given them an insight into what to expect.”
