Josh Miller returns to the team which carried him to title contention at the Donington Decider in 2022, R Racing. Miller took records with the team in 2022, driving alongside Jamie Day, for youngest race starting crew and youngest race winning crew in the history of the championship. At the Donington Decider the two were denied the record of the youngest championship winning crew in history.

Hopkins also brings a year of British GT experience, having contested the championship with Team Parker Racing in 2022. Aboard a Porsche 718 Cayman Clubsport GT4, Seb Hopkins delivered blistering pace en-route to eighth in GT4.

There’s no two ways about it: Seb and I are gunning for the title this year,” Miller told “2022 was great and I learned a lot but it was disappointing to miss out at the final round. We topped the standings at various points during that race but it just wasn’t to be when it mattered most. Now I want to finish the job, and in Seb I know I’ve found the ideal co-driver to do that. His 2022 championship position didn’t tell the whole story – his potential was clear to anyone paying close attention.”

Hopkins added: “Josh and R Racing did fantastically well in their debut season so I’m really excited by the prospect of joining them this year. Continuity is important, which we have through the team and Josh, but that year of experience in which I learned so much about sharing a car and managing GT3 traffic will also be crucial for me. There were a few podiums last year but missing out on the top step was, admittedly, frustrating. However, we also know consistency wins British GT titles, and I think that will be especially true this season if the class is as big and competitive as we’re expecting it to be.”
