R Racing Announces GT4 pairing of Miller and Hopkins for British GT

Josh Miller will remain at R Racing for the 2023 Intelligent Money British GT season and will be joined by Seb Hopkins who switches from Team Parker Racing.

The duo will form one of the youngest driving partnerships on the championship’s grid this season.

Last season Miller drove alongside Jamie Day in R Racing’s Aston Martin Vantage AMR GT4 and finished third in the overall GT4 drivers standings following a three-way title showdown at Donington’s season finale.

Hopkins drove with teammate Jamie Orton to 8th in the GT4 standings.

Josh Miller has his sight firmly set on the title in the forthcoming season.

“There’s no two ways about it: Seb and I are gunning for the title this year,” said Miller. “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.”

Seb Hopkins affirms his new teammate’s intention.

“Josh and R Racing did fantastically well in their debut season so I’m really excited by the prospect of joining them this year,” he said. “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.”

Team Director Jamie Ross said: “

“We are excited to get going and mount a serious title assault in 2023. After learning a lot last year and ending it very strongly, we are intending to pick up where we left off.

“Josh showed great pace and consistency last year; we have a great relationship with him and it’s fantastic to retain him for this year. Seb has raced against the team for a few years now and has always impressed us, so to get him with us this season is very exciting. We know what he is capable of and we are looking forward to maximising that.

“We have seen a few strong driver line-ups for GT4 but believe you need the whole package to give you the edge.”

The 2023 Intelligent Money British GT Championship gets underway at Oulton Park on April 8 – 10, preceded by the pre-season Media Day at Donington on March 14.
