Bryce Miller will step back from a full-time driving role in the No. 48  Paul Miller Racing Audi R8 LMS, which won the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship season finale at Petit Le Mans, to race only in the endurance races at Daytona, Sebring and Petit Le Mans.

The team, meanwhile, plans to return for the full TUDOR Championship but is seeking a full-time replacement for Miller.

“I am certainly not retiring from racing but our growth at the Paul Miller Auto Group, and my desire to learn more about our ‘other family business’ makes it the right time to make this move” Bryce Miller said.

“Knowing that I will still compete in endurance races in our Audi will make it easier but it will still seem a little strange when the first sprint races come after Daytona and Sebring and I will be watching on television at home.”

Meanwhile Christopher Haase, who raced a full season with PMR this season, is not yet confirmed back for 2015 although the team hopes they can continue with him.

“We really enjoy the association and support from Audi and the R8 LMS is a wonderful race car,” Paul Miller said. “Having Christopher Haase on the team was a huge part of our success and we would love to have him or an Audi driver of the same considerable talent back in 2015.

“Pairing that driver up with Bryce’s replacement will be a main piece of the puzzle and we look forward to announcing our full program soon.”
