(June, 17, 2008) -- The 2007 Grand-Am Rolex Sports Car Series GT championship team will be reunited this week as Bryce Miller of Hoboken, N.J., returns to Farnbacher Loles Racing. He will drive the No. 87 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car with Dirk Werner of Kissenbrück, Germany, for the rest of the 2008 season, starting with the series race at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio, on Saturday. The pair drove the No. 87 Porsche to the series GT team title last year and Werner won the class driver championship. Miller has driven with both Farnbacher Loles and TRG this season.
"Obviously we’re very happy to have Bryce back. He is a talented driver and he and Dirk have really great chemistry together. Last year’s championship showed their potential as a driving team," Farnbacher Loles Racing owner Gregory Loles said. "This year, however, has been a challenging one for the Porsche teams as the rules and new tire package have been better suited to other manufacturers in the series. [TRG owner] Kevin Buckler and I have been working with the series and our engineers to get Porsche back on an equal footing with the Pontiacs and Mazdas. We have both experienced success in the Grand-Am series and we expect to get Porsche back on top before long.”
