Millennium Racing withdraws from Sebring 12 Hours

It looks the team has decided to focus on testing in Europe instead.

Millennium Racing's year was scheduled to begin with the 12 Hours of Sebring in order to prepare for its full season assault with two ORECA 03 chassis in the FIA World Endurance Championship. But one-car entry has been withdrawn in order to focus on European testing.

The team managed by Delta Motorsport's Simon Dowson was indeed present last week in Florida for the Dunlop tire tests. However, Millennium Racing has decided not to take part in the 12 Hours of Sebring. During the tests, the team focused on tire testing and did not run on the Continental tires that are required in the Tudor United SportsCar Championship.

Millennium Racing has opted to begin a new testing program in Europe at Magny Cours in order to be ready for the first WEC race at Silverstone.

The No. 22 ORECA 03 will be driven by Fabien Giroix, John Martin and Oliver Turvey. In the No. 23, Stefan Johansson will race alongside Mike Conway and Shinji Nakano.

Millennium Racing's GT3 entry will be announced shortly where it is planned to make a debut in the Paul Ricard round of the Blancpain Endurance Series followed by the 24 Hours of Spa in July.
