IMSA GTD frontrunners Paul Miller Racing have announced an end to their partnership with Lamborghini after six seasons, ahead of a likely switch to BMW for the 2022 campaign.
The team began campaigning Lamborghini’s V10-powered Huracan GT3 machinery in the 2016 season, making the switch from Audi.
In the years that followed, Paul Miller Racing recorded class victories in the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Twelve Hours of Sebring, as well as the GTD title in 2018 and the Michelin Endurance Cup in 2020. The team also scored 10 pole positions and a total of 25 podiums.
Our relationship with Lamborghini since 2016 has assisted us in achieving some of our greatest successes to date,” team owner Paul Miller, said.
“I want to thank them for that partnership over the last six years, and thank them for all the hardware we’ve been able to take home on the team, driver and manufacturer side!”
The New Jersey-based squad’s title tilt during last weekend’s Petit Le Mans ended in tears, coming up short after suffering damage from contact with an LMP3 car.
“We thank Paul Miller Racing, the entire crew and last but not least Madison and Bryan, for the extraordinary job done with our Huracan GT3,” commented Head of Lamborghini Motorsport, Giorgio Sanna.
“They all have massively contributed to our achievements and important milestones for Lamborghini Squadra Corse. We are grateful for their partnership over the last six seasons and we wish all the best for their future”
The team now looks set to switch to the new BMW M4 GT3 in 2022. The team has updated its initial statement about its split from Lamborghini to state that it will campaign the Munich brand’s new GT3 challenger next season.
It has offered no further details about the switch, which drivers will drive the car and in which class it will compete apart from stating that further announcements for the 2022 season ‘will be made in the coming months.’
