IMSA Spotlight: Bryan Sellers
Driver: No. 48 Paul Miller Racing Lamborghini Huracan GT3
You and your co-driver Madison Snow are fourth in the GT Daytona points standings. Given the strength of the class this year, how pleased are you to be in that position and within striking distance of the class leaders?
“GTD has proven to be more and more difficult every year and the points battle is a perfect reflection of that. You can see all the cars and the teams are very tight. We have had a few small miscues this season, but also some great team results.
“If we can get all these things clicking at the same time I think we will still have a fighting chance. We are happy to be where we are at the moment, but are striving for better moving forward. We still have a lot of races left and a lot of opportunities ahead.”
What has been the strength of the Lamborghini Huracan GT3 package so far this season?
“Our strength has been our consistency up until this point in the season. We haven’t had a weak event yet. We haven’t been the best car at every event but we have been competitive at every event, and I think that is the ultimate goal: give yourself a chance every weekend and try to capitalize on those opportunities.”
How do you expect the car to fare on the streets of Belle Isle?
“We have been very strong on street courses in the past, and we had a great car last year. That never seems to matter from year to year because everyone will be better, but I think we should have a chance. We will go in and try our best for a podium finish and try to take some good points home.”
What challenges do you face on a street circuit that you don’t find on more traditional tracks?
“One of the largest issues we face on a street course is lack of time. We are very limited on track time. That puts a massive emphasis on rolling the car off the truck with a strong package. You have no opportunities to test through the offseason so you have to take your best shot on what you think the car and track may need.”
What hobbies or activities keep you busy away from the race track?
“I really enjoy running and riding my road bike. I find that I can just zone out and take a break while doing it. I have two young kids, and spending time with them is the best thing I get to do when I come home from a trip.”
