Bryce Miller will add another international first to his resume next month when he competes for the first time in les 24 Heures du Mans (24 Hours of Le Mans) in France. The U.S. driver will be behind the wheel of the No. 92 JMW Motorsport Aston Martin Vantage, equipped with Dunlop Tires. Miller will share driving duty with Rob Bell and Tim Sugden, both of England. Miller's sponsors Marquis Jet and IPC Systems will support the entry.
"I am thrilled and honored at the opportunity to compete at Le Mans with JMW Motorsport and Aston Martin," Miller said. "The team has championship experience and a tremendous appetite to win, something clearly evidenced in only my short time spent meeting and working with crew members and Dunlop. Tim Sugden and Rob Bell are both fast, experienced drivers and very professional in their approach. I look forward to working with both of them and the crew over the next weeks to learn more about the Aston Martin, the Dunlop and Le Mans."
Miller has earned 22 podium finishes in the past four seasons, including second-place class finishes in the 2009 24 Hours of Spa and the 2008 Rolex 24 At Daytona. He is racing this year in the American Le Mans Series and GRAND-AM Rolex Sports Car Series.
JMW team principal Jim McWhirter looks forward to welcoming the American hotshoe to the team for Le Mans. "I am delighted Bryce will join us for Le Mans where I am sure he will be a great asset to the team," McWhirter said. "He has shown great ability so far in his career and his enthusiasm was clear when he came to test for us; he is very much in the JMW Motorsport mold!"
"Bryce is a very determined and talented young driver," Sugden added. "I know the ambition he will bring with him marries perfectly to that of JMW Motorsport. Bryce will be a great addition to this chapter of JMW's season. The team are very focused on the challenge of Le Mans and to show the world just what the Aston Martin is capable of."
Les 24 Heures du Mans is set for June 12 and 13 on the 13.269-km (8.245-mile) road course in Le Mans, France.
