After a season of European Le Mans Series competition, Ollie Millroy has been confirmed as part of AAI Motorsport’s lineup in the Asian Le Mans Series for 2014.
The 23-year-old Briton will pilot a BMW Z4 GT3 in the five-round championship, which kicks off in Korea on July 20.
Millroy is no stranger to either the car or the Asian culture, coming off a third place finish in the ELMS GTC championship with Ecurie Ecosse’s similar Z4 GT3 last year, while competing in the Formula BMW Pacific Series in 2008.
“The deal came about quite quickly to be honest,” Millroy said. “Returning to race in Asia is something I’ve been keen to do for a while and this is just the sort of challenge that appealed to me.
“With my experience of the BMW Z4 GT3 I’m sure I can play a major role in helping to develop AAI Motorsport’s Asian Le Mans Series program this year.”
The Taiwanese AAI squad will be among the teams represented in the newly combined GT class, which is open to FIA GT3 and ACO GTE-spec machinery.
“The idea is to grow with them and move forward together, especially as they have ambitions to race on an international level,”Millroy said of the team. “With the ACO offering both the GTC class winners and runners-up a guaranteed Le Mans invitation it was an opportunity too good to pass up.”
Millroy will get his first opportunity to test AAI’s BWW during a two-day test in Sepang on April 14-15.
