Ollie Millroy to Spearhead AAI Motorsport’s AsLMS Challenge

1 Mins read

Ollie Millroy will spearhead AAI Motorsport’s Asian Le Mans Series challenge in 2014.

Millroy, who raced in Asia in 2008 during the BMW Pacific series, will race the team’s 2014 specification BMW Z4 in the GTC class of the series, and will hope to build on the Taiwanese teams’ third place last season.

“The deal came about quite quickly to be honest,” said Millroy. “Returning to race in Asia is something I’ve been keen to do for a while and this is just the sort of challenge that appealed to me. With my experience of the BMW Z4 GT3 I’m sure I can play a major role in helping to develop AAI Motorsport’s Asian Le Mans Series programme this year.

 “The idea is to grow with them and move forward together, especially as they have ambitions to race on an international level. With the ACO offering both the GTC class winners and runners-up a guaranteed Le Mans invitation it was an opportunity too good to pass up.”

Despite doing the full AsLMS season, Millroy is still looking at other options this season, including the GT blue riband event – the Spa 24 Hours.

“At the moment our plan is to contest the full Asian Le Mans Series, but we could add a couple of other events to the programme, including the GT race at Macau, which would be an amazing opportunity! Aside from that I’m still looking at a few possibilities in Europe, like contesting the 24 Hours of Spa, as well as continuing with my driver coaching commitments.”

The 2014 AsLMS series starts at Inje on July 20.
