United Autosports join the search for Britain's best young driver with Aston Martin, AutoSport Magazine and the BRDC

 

 

The Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award (AMABA) is a young driver’s dream, with the chance to win £200k, test drive an Aston Martin Formula 1 car, and join an illustrious list of previous winners including David Coulthard, Jenson Button, Lando Norris and George Russell.



And this year, United Autosports has been selected to be part of the process to decide who takes home the glory.
 



Over two days of top-secret testing, the four shortlisted drivers – Louis Foster, Luke Browning, Jamie Chadwick and Ollie Bearman – will be put through their paces at Silverstone, driving the iconic British track in a range of cars including the United Autosports Ligier JS P320 LMP3 prototype.  


 





The United team will be joined at Silverstone by Wayne Boyd, 2020 European Le Mans Series LMP3 champion, to set the LMP3 benchmark lap time for the finalists. In 2008, Boyd was shortlisted for the Young Driver of the Year Award (pictured above), so the event marks something of a full circle moment for the Northern Irish driver who now returns to the test days as a racing pro.



Stay up to date with all the action on the United Autosports Instagram, Twitter and Facebook channels - from workshop prep to behind-the-scenes Silverstone coverage.


 


Richard Dean, United Autosports CEO:


“The Young Driver of the Year is the highlight of the prestigious Autosport Awards – an awards evening I have followed and attended for as long as I can remember.


The fact the BRDC asked United Autosports to be involved in the process feels like an award in itself for our team. I am a life member of the BRDC and love the work they do in promoting and assisting British talent, we are very lucky to have such a club at the heart of British motorsport.”





Wayne Boyd, United Autosports LMP3 Driver:


“Having been one of the finalists back in 2008, and now going back with the United team to set benchmark lap times - it’s pretty cool. I remember being terrified to make sure I did a good job when I was a finalist, but it was an amazing experience and one I hold in high regard as part of my career.”




Charlie Kemp, United Autosports Project Manager:



“The Aston Martin Autosport BRDC Award gives young drivers an amazing chance to progress their career, and United Autosports are really pleased to be bringing a Ligier LMP3 car to the event to let the finalists show off their true skill against each other.



At United, we have run numerous drivers who have won the award [including Paul Di Resta, Oliver Jarvis and Tom Gamble], so to be involved in the shoot-out itself and see what goes on is something we’re really proud of.”
