Oliver Jarvis will be joined by Yasser Shahin and Garnet Patterson in United Autosports’ second Oreca 07 Gibson for the Asian Le Mans Series, it has been confirmed.

The trio will pilot the Anglo-American squad’s No. 23 entry in the four-round season in February alongside United’s previously confirmed No. 22 Oreca for Phil Hanson, Paul Di Resta and Jim McGuire.

Jarvis, who has been retained for a full season FIA World Endurance Championship program with United, last contested the series in 2009 when it featured a pair of pilot races in Okayama, Japan.

The 38-year-old former Audi and Mazda factory driver won the 2022 IMSA DPi championship with Meyer Shank Racing.

“I’m so excited to be a part of the United Autosports charge at the Asian Le Mans Series, and really looking forward to driving alongside Yasser and Garnet for the first time,” Jarvis said.

“I think we’re a strong team and can’t wait to get going in the New Year.”

Both Shahin, a two-time Fanatec GT World Challenge Australia powered by AWS champion and co-owner of The Bend Motorsport Park in Adelaide, and fellow Australian Patterson, took part in last month’s WEC rookie test in Bahrain with the team.

“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 pre-COVID 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.”

While Shahin is set for his debut at United, Patterson drove with the team in Michelin Le Mans Cup competition this year.

“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,” he said.

“I’m excited to get to the UAE in February and see what we can achieve.”
