Roger Wills Joins United Autosports At Oulton
Replacing Richard Meins

With Richard Meins continuing his recuperation following his recent testing crash, United Autosports has announced that Roger Wills will be stepping in to share the #24 McLaren MP4-12C with Mark Blundell at the opening British GT round at Oulton Park on Easter Monday.

 “I’m delighted to be stepping into the car for Oulton Park, but I’m disappointed for Richard who is a good friend of mine, and I hope he makes a quick recovery," said the New Zealander, who raced with UA at Dubai in 2012. "I’ve driven the McLaren before, during the Spa 24 hours, but it will be my first time in the British GT Championship and I am really looking forward to it. It’s great to be back with the team.”

Meanwhile, the unfortunate Meins has been reflecting on his recent shunt; “Not having raced at Oulton Park since 2000 I was looking forward to the two-day test. It didn’t take me long to get back into the flow, and I soon remembered the unique nature of the circuit with help from Mark Blundell and the team. On our second day I started to put in some decent lap times then in the afternoon session I put a rear wheel on the grass at the kink before the first chicane, and suffered a side impact with the tyre wall which unfortunately resulted in sustaining broken ribs and a fractured knee, not to mention the damage to the car. I want to thank the marshals and medical staff at Oulton Park for a really professional job helping me out of the car and taking care of me in the medical centre, and to the paramedics and the staff at NHS Leighton Hospital in Crewe. It was not the start to the season I had hoped for, and to say I am very disappointed is an understatement, but I’m looking forward to getting back behind the wheel at Silverstone.”
