They will race the #23 entry in the LMP2 class and compete against fellow Aussie James Allen, while John Corbett will be driving in LMP3.

The livery the United Autosports #23 entry will carry at the Asian Le Mans Series.

The series commences today with Qualifying and a four-hour race at the Dubai Autodrome, while another four-hour race follows at the same venue tomorrow.

Jarvis leads the United Autosports team and has a 1000 Miles of Sebring win and IMSA Dpi championship under his belt, while Patterson got a taste of what to expect racing in the 2022 Le Mans Cup.

The trio will race in a black and orange #23 car which will stand out with The Bend Motorsport Park branding.

Shahin said the car represents his desire for The Bend circuit to continue to enhance its global reputation. 

Yasser Shahin is ready to take on the Asian Le Mans Series for United Autosports.

“The Bend aspires to be a global motorsport brand and to attract the best race series in the world to its venue,” he said. 

“We are here representing The Bend on a global stage and look forward to a strong showing with United Autosports”

It will mark Shahin’s debut for United Autosports and he is thrilled with the chance to race for such a world-renowned team on the international stage.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the ALMS series with United  Autosports, representing The Bend Motorsport Park,” Shahin said.

“Having already hosted a round of ALMS  down under, I’m very much looking forward to getting up close to the series and seeing first hand these amazing machines in action.

“I’m joined by a couple of very accomplished drivers in the LMP2 category and therefore looking forward to a strong performance.”

Patterson is excited for his second shot at the ALMS, and is confident that the trio can push for the victory.

“Can’t wait to step up to LMP2 with United Autosports for the Asian Le Mans Series in  2023,” said the New South Welshman.

“Yasser and I had a successful WEC rookie test in Bahrain, showing promising pace, and to be joined  by someone as experienced as Olly … I think we have a really competitive package entering into the  championship. I’m excited to get to the UAE in February and see what we can achieve!”
