Duncan has known United Autosports co-owner, Richard Dean for many years, racing against his team in the Formula Ford Championship 15 years ago.
Duncan Tappy, driver, United Autosports:
“I’m so happy to be joining United Autosports. I have known Richard [Dean] since our Formula Ford days back in 2005. To see the growth of United Autosports has been amazing and to now be a part of the team is really exciting for me. Also, to be making the step up to ELMS after two years in the Michelin Le Mans Cup is perfect timing. I’m really looking forward to a great year with Jim and Andrew.”
Zak Brown, Team Owner and Chairman, United Autosports:
“I’m pleased to see Duncan join our team for 2020. He is a great racer and I’m sure will bring a lot of experience to our ELMS team.”
