Young American gets first look at the spectacle of Le Mans as a competitor

American GT driver Bryce Miller is competing at the Le Mans 24 Hours for the first time this year. He'll pilot an Aston Martin Vantage for JMW Motorsport with teammates Tim Sugden and Rob Bell. For his first time competing at the world's greatest race, he is giving americanlemans.com readers an account on the sights, sounds and excitement that come only with Le Mans.

I arrived here at Le Mans late last night for my first time with the intent to compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Riding through the town on parts of the track, I became very excited.

At scrutineering this morning in the town square, the presence of press and media along with the great swarms of fans and their spirit left me feeling almost as if I was dreaming. I am doing all I can to try and soak it all in - advice many have given me and I plan to make a discipline of.

This afternoon has been normal preparation by the team to the car and preliminarily going through seating variance issues with my co-drivers Rob Bell and Tim Sugden. I'm working to get my helmet functioning with the car radio system as well.

I have to say it feels just incredible to be here, to know I am on hallowed ground and such historic territory relevant to sports car racing teams and drivers around the world. I can't wait to start driving!
