Zak Brown won the Group C race in the IMSA GTP class at the Le Mans Classic event last weekend (9 July), racing the 1986 IMSA Porsche 962 and finishing seventh overall in a field of 35 cars.

United Autosports entered the Porsche 962 into the prestigious historic event - the same Porsche 962 that won on its debut at the Six Hours of Riverside in 1986 for US team, Dyson Racing. The car scored a further seven podiums that year. This helped Price Cobb to second place in the 1986 Camel GTP Championship.

On Friday morning, Zak Brown clinched pole for the C1b class and cemented his pole position later that evening, by improving on his time set earlier that day. Zak also scored the fastest lap of the race on lap eight with a time of 4:07:656.

The United Autosports historics team make their way to Silverstone next for the Silverstone Classic (30-31 July) with the March 701 and McLaren MP4-16A.

Zak Brown, Driver and Team Owner, United Autopsorts: “I’m thrilled with how this weekend went. A pole position, fastest lap and the win is a great result for all the team. The Porsche 962 is a great car and it ran perfectly all weekend. To race at Le Mans is a real privilege and it feels even more special in a car like this Porsche. Bring on the Silverstone Classic at the end of the month.”

Richard Dean, Team Owner and Managing Director, United Autosports: “Zak did a great job at Le Mans in the Porsche against some tough competition, especially getting pole by nearly five seconds over the second placed guy. The team had worked hard to get the Porsche 962 running perfectly, so I’m glad they were also rewarded with a win. We are looking forward to the Silverstone Classic at the end of the month with Jackie Stewart’s March 701 and Mika Hakkinen’s McLaren MP4-16A.”
