Racecar driver opens for NY International Auto Show

West Caldwell, N.J. -- Saturday, March 22, the 2008 New York International Auto Show officially opened with Bryce Miller of Hoboken, N.J., drag racing down 11th Ave in his 2007 Rolex GT Championship winning No. 87 Marquis Jet GT3 Cup Porsche against Roger Garbow of Ridgefield, C.T. in the Farnbacher Loles Porsche Cayman GTR.

Shortly prior to the doors opening, Miller and Garbow drag raced in front of the Javits Center in front of thousands of people and the NYPD and State Police. The race was close, but the GT3 Cup beat the Cayman GTR. The two drivers finished the race by performing a few donuts in the middle of 11th Ave as the crowd cheered them on.

Miller stayed for the weekend to sign autographs along side his championship winning racecar and two other Grand-Am Racecars. "Being such a car guy, I try to attend the NY Auto Show every year so I'm extremely excited to be a part of this ceremony," Miller said. "This is great exposure for all of our sponsors, especially since Marquis Jet, Resorts International, IPC, Total and Paul Miller Porsche are located in New York City or the surrounding metro. It was an unforgettable experience to drive down a city street and leave my marks with a few donuts."

In the 2007 Grand-Am Rolex season, co-drivers Miller and Dirk Werner from Kissenbrück, Germany and the Farnbacher Loles Team based in Danbury, C.T. drove the No. 87 Marquis Jet Porsche to a season high 10 of 13 podiums which helped to attain their GT Team Championship and Drivers Championship titles. Farnbacher Loles and both drivers were rookies to the season. "Celebrating a championship season in events like this is a good way to share the success with all our supporters; the team, sponsors and individuals that helped to make this possible," Miller said.
