24 Hours of Daytona – Successful tests for Hugo de Sadeleer and Team United Autosports
A few weeks before the start of the 24 Hours of Daytona, Hugo de Sadeleer and Team United Autosports made their first laps on the famous Daytona International Speedway, during three days. A very enriching first experience for Hugo who will take part in the mythical race on January 24th.
In all, nearly 2,500 kilometers were covered by the crew at the wheel of the Ligier JS P217 during this short period of time. Hugo has thus discovered the Florida route alongside Fernando Alonso, Paul Di Resta and Bruno Senna.
After these few days of tests, Hugo declared: “I’m really looking forward to the race. The track is incredible, like nothing in Europe, while the banking is massively exciting to drive on. I also like the infield section. We’ve completed a lot of work over the three days. We had some small issues on the first day but nothing since. We’re down on outright pace compared to the opposition but hopefully that can be reduced. There’s been an amazing atmosphere even though it’s only testing with exceptional drivers and exceptional teams in the paddock. Just a great experience.”
