Savage, Minnesota

JDC-Miller MotorSports is excited to return to the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring in the
top class of the IMSA WeatherTech Sportscar Championship with the Porsche 963
GTP.

JDC-Miller MotorSports boasts a history of exceptionally strong performances at
Sebring, highlighted by an overall win in 2021. The team returned in 2022 and came up
a bit short with a runner-up finish. They also secured a 4th place finish in 2020. Last
year, they once again graced the podium, this time in the LMP3 class, while awaiting
the delivery of the Porsche 963.

John Church, Managing Partner, No. 85 JDC-Miller MotorSports Porsche 963

“We’re thrilled to be back at Sebring in the top class, vying for the overall win, especially
with a car as capable as the Porsche 963. It’s a bit different this year carrying the
Porsche banner as Sebring has such a special place in Porsche’s storied history. It’s
humbling to see all those banners of Porsche victories along pit lane. We feel a
responsibility to do everything we can to extend that legacy.

Our team is seasoned with the unique challenges of the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of
Sebring. We take great pride in our mastery of what it takes to perform at this classic
racetrack and the iconic 12-hour race. Sebring holds a special significance for our team.

We had a successful Sebring test last month, completing numerous laps without any
issues. Our drivers and crew boast significant Sebring and prototype experience, which
not only enhances our competitiveness in the race but also makes test sessions more
productive. Our Porsche 963 program has come together nicely, and I’m incredibly
proud of this team.”

Richard Westbrook, Driver, No. 85 JDC-Miller MotorSports Porsche 963

“I can’t wait for Sebring. It’s possibly my favorite race of the year. It’s just one of those
classic events that has a very special atmosphere, steeped in tradition and history, and
I’ve had a lot of success there over the years. Managed to win it in 2013 and last time I
was with JDC in 2022, we came close to winning just missing out with a really good
runner-up finish. Would love to go one better, but as we all know, it’s a very different
venue to most tracks.

It’s extremely bumpy, which gives the engineers a lot of headaches in trying to set the
car up, but we had a good test there a few of weeks ago. We are going in quite
confident.”

Tijmen van der Helm, Driver, No. 85 JDC-Miller MotorSports Porsche 963

“We had a good run at Daytona and I am really looking forward to the 12-hours of
Sebring. I’ve done the 12-hours twice before, once in WEC and last year with JDC in
the LMP3 car. This will be my first time in the top class and am really looking forward to
competing for the overall win.“

Phil Hanson, Driver, No. 85 JDC-Miller MotorSports Porsche 963

“Coming off a solid Daytona, I am very excited to see what we can do at Sebring. The
JDC team has been working very hard to give us a strong package ahead of the
Sebring 12-hour and I am optimistic we will be in the fight. It’s been a few years since I
raced in the 12-hour, having been in the WEC paddock for the previous few years, I
can’t wait to be back in the IMSA pitlane this year.”
