Marco Seefried will join forces with Bryan Sellers and Corey Lewis in Paul Miller Racing’s Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo for next weekend’s IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship season-ending Motul Petit Le Mans.

The Silver-rated German will make his first race start with the Atlanta-based squad, which enters the ten-hour enduro on the heels of GT previous round at WeatherTech Raceway Laguna Seca.

The 43-year-old German is no stranger to the GT Daytona class in 2019, completing a number of races this year with Paul Miller Racing rivals, Park Place Motorsports and Black Swan Racing.

The Paul Miller Racing trio will be out to defend Lamborghini’s manufacturer’s championship lead at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, with the the Italian manufacturer holding a one-point lead.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Marco to the team and looking forward to seeing him form a great partnership with Bryan and Corey,” team owner Paul Miller said.

“Marco brings a huge amount of experience to the team. Just this year, he has driven a variety of GT cars from Porsche, Lexus, Ferrari and Audi. That experience and versatility has us very excited to see what he can do aboard our Lamborghini.”

Seefried effectively takes the place of Lewis, who was intended to be the team’s third driver in the race until getting drafted into complete the remainder of the season alongside Sellers after a knee injury for Ryan Harwick at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in July.

“I’m definitely excited to be a part of the line up from Paul Miller Racing at Petit Le Mans, especially after their strong run at the last race, winning the GTD class,” he said.

“I think everyone on the team is confident and committed to the last race. I’m really happy to join such a line up for Petit and looking very much forward to being at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta and hopefully ending up on the podium again.”
