Miller Joins Farnbacher Loles for 2007
Racer Confident of Championship Challenge
Following a successful and much publicized debut at the Daytona 24 Hours this past month, representatives for the rising American race star Bryce Miller have announced his formal intention to drive the #87 Farnbacher Loles Porsche for the duration of the 2007 Grand Am GT race season. Miller's standout performance during the Daytona 24-hour event was nothing short of spectacular. Miller posted fastest time consecutively while facing increasingly treacherous weather conditions overnight, driving through a steady downpour and moving the four-driver relay effort ahead by a full two positions. This was more than enough to further boost the confidence of team principles at Farnbacher Loles, whose announcement was released over their team website on Tuesday February 6th.
Miller will be paired with German driver Dirk Werner. On paper, Miller and Werner form a potent combination that will undoubtedly challenge for a GT class championship in a series that is ripe with contenders. Preseason hype aside, Miller appears confident that he and his new teammate will seize the opportunity. "At this stage, I am as confident and pleased as anybody with my teammate and team backing. I don't see any reason why we can't challenge for the championship."
Miller is entering his sophomore sponsorship campaign with Marquis Jet, whose support of the 24-year-old American began last year in the Porsche Cup Series. Miller showcased blinding speed and consistency by posting more fastest laps than any other driver during the '06 season. Now, in the faster Grand Am Series, Marquis Jet looks to gain yet further exposure and prestige in events as far away as the season opening race in Mexico City. Grand Am will also travel to other locations around the United States and Canada. Miller's Marketing Chief Jill Meyer is very excited about the new series. "The exposure for our sponsors is tremendous and it will only get better as the season progresses." Hopefully for the #87 car, the realization of a Championship will mean more than just exposure but also further international recognition for Miller & Co.
