Coming off of a successful partial season in 2019, with three pole positions and three podiums in only six races, Unitronic, the leader in High Performance Software and Hardware for Audi® and Volkswagen® vehicles, have once again partnered with JDC-Miller MotorSports, setting their sights on a championship run with their #17 Audi RS 3 LMS TCR in IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge competition.
Seasoned professionals Mikey Taylor and Chris Miller combine to form undoubtedly one of the strongest lineups in the TCR class. Taylor, who has worked with Unitronic since 2015 said, “Unitronic has grown leaps and bounds, and it’s been a pleasure to be part of that growth. I couldn’t think of a more enjoyable program to be part of than this. I have my friends from Unitronic, JDC-Miller, Audi, and our family of partners all in one place to go for a proper championship effort and generate some great business value!”
Chris Miller, having spent the majority of the last few seasons making appearances in the team’s Cadillac DPI’s and prototypes ranking up some impressive results said, “I did one race with Unitronic in 2019 and really enjoyed working with them and learning about their business. I know Mikey and I will be a strong pair to represent them both on and off the track. JDC-Miller MotorSports has had fast cars in TCR so I’m confident we have all the pieces to compete for a championship. I can’t wait to get to Daytona in just a few months!”
