Matt Bell will return to America this week, taking part in the two-day Sebring test with Paul Miller Racing after a successful debut at the Daytona 24 Hours.

Bell, who came close to a podium finish at Daytona only for a water leak to delay the teams progress, will again take to the wheel of the No.48 Audi R8 LMS at Sebring, a track the Brit has never raced at before.

“Sebring will present its own set of challenges,” said Bell. “It is completely different to Daytona where the defining feature is the banking and, even with a lot of traffic, it’s OK as there aren’t that many corners.

“This will be my first time at Sebring but I have heard all about it. It is an incredibly bumpy, rough and ready race track, especially when you are on what was once a concrete runway for B52 bombers!”

Speaking of the Audi he drove at Daytona, Bell said: “I enjoyed racing the Audi at Daytona. We set the fastest lap of the race in the GTD class and started from pole so we know we have the pace to win.

“I’m feeling very positive going into this event and the fact we can go out there to test a month before the race is a great benefit to Sebring rookies like me as I get to learn the track before it really matters.”

The two-day test in Florida will take place on 20/21 February.
