Paul Miller Racing’s returning endurance race driving trio of Bryan Sellers, Madison Snow and Bryce Miller will be joined by Italian sports car racing talent Andrea Caldarelli for next month’s season-opening Rolex 24 At Daytona.
Caldarelli tested with Paul Miller Racing in last month’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship session at Daytona International Speedway, a full two-day run that concluded the No. 48 team’s planned 2016 testing schedule.
“We are really excited to have a driver of Andrea’s talent available to join our team for the Rolex 24 At Daytona,” said Team Owner Paul Miller.
“He is familiar with the Lamborghini Huracán and GT3 racing in total and proved to be quick from the beginning in his test with us even though he had never been to Daytona before.
“On top of that, he is genuinely nice guy who fit in right away with our team and gives us the final element of a driver lineup we believe should be very competitive.”
In addition to extensive open-wheel racing experience in Italian and European Formula 3, GP2, GP3 Super Formula and Formula Nippon, Caldarelli has spent the better part of this decade as top contender in the Japanese Super GT series.
He earned championship runner-up honors in the recently completed 2016 Super GT championship.
“I am very excited and really looking forward to making my debut in the Rolex 24,” Caldarelli said.
“As it is my debut in this race, it is very important to have the support of a team like Paul Miller Racing with so much experience and successes. I am sure we will do very well.”
