Job van Uitert has found a new job for the 2020 season, where he once again will be in the sportscar world.
The young Dutchman will be racing for United Autosports #32 with Alex Brundle and Will Owen in the European Le Mans Series, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans, if the car will get an entry.
After doing single-seaters in lower categories, he ended up at a bit of a blind alley, moving on to sportscars in 2018. He raced for RLR MSport in the LMP3 category in ELMS, winning the Championship. He was lucky to keep his Silver rank for another year in 2019, where he was hired by G-Drive Racing in #26 in ELMS. He has had a couple of starts in the FIA WEC, where he was a replacement at Racing Team Nederland.
Van Uitert almost won the ELMS LMP2 title in 2019, until he was involved in a collision at the final round. That gave G-Drive Racing #26 a penalty, that not even Jean-Eric Vergne was able to eliminate, resulting in IDEC Sport #28 winning the title. Two titles in two years would almost be too good of a story for the young driver, but the possibility was there.
The European Le Mans Series 2020 starts the first weekend of April at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.
