Lamborghini factory driver Andrea Caldarelli has been confirmed in Paul Miller Racing’s driver lineup for the Rolex 24 at Daytona.

The 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup champion will co-drive the No. 48 Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO with the already confirmed Ryan Hardwick, Corey Lewis and defending IMSA GT Daytona class champion Bryan Sellers.

Caldarelli helped Paul Miller Racing score a podium in the 2018 edition of the Rolex 24, which marked the first of five straight top-three finishes for the Georgia-based team.

“We thank Lamborghini for letting us have Andrea back,” said team owner Paul Miller.

“He knows our team and we’ve developed great confidence in each other. It’s a pairing that works well and we are delighted to have Andrea back for another attempt at going after a top finish at Daytona.”

Caldarelli, who made his Rolex 24 debut with Paul Miller Racing in 2017, said he had “high expectations” for a good result on his third visit.

“Alongside Paul Miller Racing, we build-up a winning package, and after last year’s podium the intention is to continue on a high note,” said the 28-year-old Italian.

“It will not be easy, but I’m more than happy to make my return in this team, and driving a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO will be a more than strong motivation for me to do my best for myself, the team, and Lamborghini Squadra Corse.”
