EDGE pilot Josh Miller took a solid P3 at the weekend at Donington Park resulting in 3rd in the Championship overall and 2nd in the Silver class – an impressive result considering it to be his first year in senior car racing and the fact that Miller and his team mate Jamie Day were the youngest ever podium pair to grace the British GT grid in history.

With just 20.5 points between the top three title contenders heading into the final round, Josh Miller head into the final race weekend of the year focussed on scoring points. Having no pitstop penalty success time added onto their pitstop, Miller and Day were looking good for another podium finish.

Qualifying would see Miller set a time good enough for P5 and team mate Day a time of P6 which meant an average starting position of P4 for the race.

Miller would start the race and made up 1 position on the first lap tucking in behind Championship rival Richard Williams in the Audi. A strong stint saw Miller box holding position. At one stage the #23 was up into P2 and looked to be handed the Championship win but an ill timed safety car meant that the chasing pack (of whom had more ultimate pace) were able to catch back up. Day tried his hardest to keep the hard pushing Sennan Feilding at bay but on lap 58 Feilding slipped passed day and therefore re took the lead of the championship. Further down the field the 3rd Championship contender of Darren Turner was fast charging back through the pack after an awful qualifying. Unfortunately for Miller & Day, Turner managed to get back up into P7 which was enough for them to snatch 2nd in the Championship from Miller and Day. With just 12.5 points separating the top 3, Miller and Day would take third in the Championship and 3rd on the road – a fantastic effort considering the lack of experience of the drivers and team in their first ever year in British GT.
