Following a run of two consecutive top 5 finishes for the Unitronic JDC-Miller MotorSport duo of Chris Miller and Mikey Taylor, the team looks to finish a few steps higher at the only west coast event of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Championship.

MONTREAL, CANADA – Typically, not a very well-suited track for the Audi RS 3 LMS TCR platform versus that of its competitors in the shorter wheelbase Hyundai, Honda and Alfa Romeo, Audi’s have been able to do well in previous years based on better fuel strategy and tire degradation. This year will be the first year an JDC-Miller MotorSports Audi will compete with a sequential gearbox compared to the alternate DSG gearboxes previously used, which should benefit the #17 entry even more.

Having sat out of competing in the #17 TCR entry at the California round in 2019, driver Mikey Taylor expressed his enthusiasm for the event “Laguna is always a special event no matter what car or series you are racing in, and this year will be plenty of fun especially carrying some momentum in our team! We have a great group of people in our team and partners so any time we all get together it’s a good time.”
