Jason Miller has been crowned the 2019 Cue Endurance Super Series Champion, after scoring the Class A victory and finishing seventh outright in the final one-hour race of the season at Phillip Island today, aboard his Porsche 997 GT3 Cup car.
After starting eighth, Miller made a rapid start and moved into fifth position outright by the first corner. In the opening stint, he battled with some of the outright, Class X (GT3) cars, while also pulling away from his Class A rivals.
After taking his compulsory pit stop mid-race, Miller nursed a minor brake issue in the closing laps but still secured the class win.
“Our pace was strong today, and it was really satisfying to battle against some of the GT3 cars,” Miller said.
“After my pit stop, I had quite a long brake pedal, so I just had to manage that to the end of the race, but fortunately it wasn’t too serious and I was able to bring it home.
“Overall, it’s been a great season – the class win at Bathurst was a highlight, but my favourite race for the year was the Winton one, where I was nose-to-tail with the other Porsches for the entire race.
“A big thanks to my family, crew and everyone else for their support, and once again my thoughts are with Brad Schumacher after his big crash yesterday – I really wanted him to be out there, racing hard against me this weekend.”
Miller will return to the driver’s seat of his Porsche for next weekend’s Challenge Bathurst event.
