United Autosports have announced that they have been granted two TOCA BTCC licences under the new regulations set out by the organisation.

The team are delighted to announce they will therefore be entering the 2014 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship (BTCC).

The team will be fielding two Toyota Avensis touring cars for local driver Glynn Geddie and James Cole. James drove in the 2013 BTCC championship and Glynn won the European Supercar Challenge Championship with United Autosports in 2013.

United Autosports, which started competing in 2010, will be entering their fifth year of competition and are looking forward to taking the next step in their relatively short existence. The British Touring Car Championship is one of Britain’s most popular and competitive series, giving United Autosports a new challenge for 2014.

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports, “We are really excited to be entering the 2014 British Touring Car Championship. It’s a new direction for the team and the BTCC is known across the country as a highly competitive championship so we are looking forward to taking on the new challenge.

“We have a strong driver line up in James and Glynn; James’ BTCC experience and Glynn’s pure driving skill will be invaluable to the team in 2014. We will still be entering the British GT Championship with Mark Patterson and Matt Bell, along with attending other overseas races throughout the year.”
