Paul Miller Racing will enter January's Rolex 24 at Daytona with a Marquis Jet sponsored Porsche GT3 piloted by Bryce Miller and Bryan Sellers as well as a third drive to be named at a later date.
Both Miller and Sellers drove the car the recent test at Homestead-Miami as the team – headquartered in New Jersey, but run out a shop in Georgia – prepares for the endurance race on January 29-30.
Bryce Miller has an enviable record in Grand-Am competition. In 2007 – his rookie year in the series – he finished third in the GT class points standings with one win (at Virginia International Raceway) and nine other podiums over the 13 race season. He only missed out on a share of the title because he and his regular co-driver drove different cars at Daytona. His co-driver, Dirk Werner, would take the title.
He went some way to making up for the disappointment in 2008, when he finished second in the GT class in the Rolex 24, driving a Porsche for TRG. The result remains his best placing at Daytona, finishing 21st in 2009 event and 18th in the most recent running of the race.
Also in 2008 (and also driving for TRG) Sellers finished third at Daytona, despite a minimal number of starts in Grand-Am.
“I think we have a far better chance this time around, because our experience level is up and we are familiar with the new tires,” said Bryce. “I think we should have a pretty good chance. Bryan brings a lot of speed and experience to the team, and we are happy to have him on board.”
