Paul Miller Racing has signed Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow for its Lamborghini Huracán GT3 program next season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, which gives both drivers new homes.

“We are very pleased to be able to secure a pair of talented and highly motivated drivers like Bryan Sellers and Madison Snow for the 2016 racing season to race our Lamborghini Huracán GT3,” team owner Paul Miller said.

“Bryan has raced with our team before and we are also well familiar with his abilities from competing against him in the GTLM class over several years.

“Madison caught our attention in 2014 and earlier this year. At Petit Le Mans in 2014, while we were leading and the car Madison was driving was in second place nearing the end of the race, we remember double checking the driver ID, his lap times were so impressive!”

Sellers has past experience with Paul Miller Racing, finishing second in a Porsche at the 2011 Rolex 24 at Daytona. He’s also tested the team’s new car in a shakedown at Road Atlanta last week.

Meanwhile Snow is new to Paul Miller, but not new to Lamborghini, having made a move to the Park Place Motorsports-run BAD LAMBO Racing team in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo North America season starting at Virginia International Raceway.

From an IMSA top series standpoint, Sellers moves on following the conclusion of the Derrick Walker-led Team Falken Tire Porsche program, while Snow had previously driven with Wright Motorsports and, most recently, Park Place at the Petit Le Mans season finale.

“I am beyond excited to be joining Paul Miller Racing,” Sellers said. “After having such a long run with Falken it’s great to be able to step into an established race winning program. Paul and I had been in contact and both had a lot of interest in each other.

“One common denominator between the two of us was the desire to win races and a championship.”

“Everything moves so fast within the racing series once the season ends, and the Daytona tests seem to come quick as well,” Snow added.

“Drivers and mechanics alike have to work quickly to get with a team before all of the teams fill up, so it is very pleasing and comforting to know I am finalized with a team for this coming year.

“What makes Paul Miller Racing special is that they have been at it for so long, so I know they have a solid crew and team.”

Bryce Miller will continue as third driver in Tequila Patron North American Endurance Cup rounds, and a fourth driver for the Rolex 24 at Daytona will be announced at a later date.

The new lineup formally confirms Christopher Haase and Dion von Moltke’s tenure with the team is over, as its prior relationship with Audi, which was previously announced.

Von Moltke won four pole positions in 2015, and Haase was part of the team’s lineup for its last race win, at Petit Le Mans in 2014.
