Zak Brown and Richard Dean to share United Autosports McLaren at Zandvoort

1 June 2021

United Autosports owners Zak Brown and Richard Dean will join the GT4 European Series grid at Zandvoort later this month in one of the team’s McLaren 570S GT4s.

The team has added a third car for the Zandvoort round, which is set to take place on June 18-20. Brown and Dean share the #230 entry at the Dutch venue.

Brown and Dean have not raced a modern GT car competitively in recent years, although both did compete in various history events.

"I'm so excited to be getting back behind the wheel of a race car at Zandvoort. I have tested with the team in our McLaren a couple of times now and I'm so ready to head to Zandvoort to see what we can do,” said Brown.

“It will be nice to return to modern day racing, having focused on my historic racing for the last few years. Of course, Charlie, Bailey, Gus and Dean are doing a fantastic job for us as our regular drivers, but Richard and I can't wait to get back on track together.”

“I'm excited to be taking part in the GT4 event in Zandvoort, it's one of Europe's great venues. The GT4 European Series is also incredibly successful and they are attracting huge grids, so well done to everyone at SRO,” added Dean.

“It's been a long time since I last raced a current United Autosports car so I'm really looking forward to racing the McLaren GT4. Zak and I have only really competed in historic events over the last few years, but we have been pretty successful, managing quite a few podiums together over the last few years.”

The GT4 European Series round at Zandvoort will once more feature two races on Sunday. 42 cars are set to contest the third round of the 2021 season.
