•    Bailey Voisin and Charlie Fagg seal Silver Drivers’ Championship in first race

•    Gus Bowers and Dean Macdonald claim fourth in Drivers’ Championship after hard fought battle in second race


•    Successful 2021 season for United Autosports after long-awaited return to GT racing


 

United Autosports have been crowned Silver Drivers’ Champions at the final round of 2021 GT4 European Series, to go with their Teams’ Championship win secured at the previous round at the Nürburgring. Bailey Voisin and Charlie Fagg in the #23 McLaren 570S crossed the line sixth in class yesterday, sealing the Drivers’ Championship with one race to go.
 


Starting the season off with a double win at Monza at the first round, Bailey and Charlie were set up for a brilliant first season with United Autosports, going on to achieve a further two wins, three poles and six podiums as well as picking up the Silver Teams’ Championship a round early in Nürburgring alongside teammates Gus Bowers and Dean Macdonald in the #32 McLaren 570S.
 


This weekend, Gus and Dean moved up to the third in the Drivers’ Championship after the first race at Barcelona, in which Gus drove a brilliant stint from P37 after a qualifying session that was hampered with red flags and traffic.


Having worked his way through the field, Gus handed the car to Dean in P27, who also drove brilliantly, bringing the #32 McLaren over the line to finish seventh in class, providing Gus and Dean with crucial championship points placing them third, ahead of the final race.
 


Unfortunately, the final race of the season did not favour the #32 and despite Gus and Dean’s best efforts they finished the season in fourth place. Throughout the season, Gus and Dean both qualified on pole at Monza and Nurburgring and secured their first win of 2021 at Nürburgring, which then also secured the Teams’ Championship for United.
 


United Autosports have had a brilliant return to GT racing. Bailey, Charlie, Gus and Dean have been exceptional drivers and the team have enjoyed a great partnership with them this season.
 


The team’s focus now turns to the final rounds of the European Le Mans Series and Michelin Le Mans Cup at Portimao, Portugal on 22-24 October.


 


Bailey Voisin

“It’s been an absolutely incredible debut season in GT4, winning the European GT4 Silver Drivers’ Championship alongside Charlie. The team have been incredible all year and McLaren Customer Racing have been fantastic. It’s been a really enjoyable year with lots of positives to take away. I appreciate everyone’s help and hard work and wish United all the best in their future endeavours.”
 


Charlie Fagg


“It's been a great year and to come into the last round and win the drivers’ championship has been absolutely brilliant. A big thanks to everyone at United and my teammate Bailey who has been phenomenal in his first ever year of GT racing. Whilst it might not have been the perfect weekend in Barcelona, nonetheless it was brilliant to wrap up the championship so thank you everyone at United and McLaren.”



 

Gus Bowers


“Although it wasn't the end of the season we wanted, it's still been a great year overall, with winning the Teams’ championship. Congratulations to Bailey on his debut and Charlie for winning the drivers’ championship. It’s been a great experience working with the team so I very much hope I can work with them in the future.”
 



Dean Macdonald


“It wasn’t the race weekend we wanted, but to finish fourth in the championship is still a good result. Thank you to the team for such a great season.”



 
CHARLIE KEMP


“We’ve done it. Achieved what we set out to do at the start of the year, which was to win the Drivers’ and Teams’ Championship. Credit has to go to the whole team and drivers for making all this possible.”





Charlotte Lumley,United Autosports
