United Autosports has to call on a substitute for this weekend’s European Le Mans Series race at Spa Francorchamps.
The defending ELMS Champion Sean Rayhall had to call in sick.
His usual co-driver John Falb will have Scott Andrews in the United Autosports #2 LMP3 car.
The 18 year-old Australian driver currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia, but he knows the European tracks from the Michelin Le Mans Cup, where he raced selected rounds in 2017, and so far has done the full 2018 series for Cool Racing.
Falb and Rayhall won the ELMS LMP3 Championship in 2017, but haven’t had much luck this season, with some mechanical issues on the car. They retired from the lead at Red Bull Ring in a huge cloud of smoke behind the car.
Sean Rayhall has said that it’s nothing serious, but he doesn’t want to take the chance of the long flight from USA to Europe, and not be 100% ready.
The ELMS race will be run this Sunday afternoon at 12.30 CET.
