Sports Car Insider


At only 26 years old, Tommy Milner has a very impressive racing résumé. He made the move into sportscar racing after starting his career as a teenager in the Formula BMW USA series in 2004 and has had great success, helping to bring the ALMS GT manufacturers championship to BMW in 2010 and getting a huge win for Corvette Racing at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2011 along with Olivier Beretta and Antonio Garcia. Milner has also raced in the Grand Am Rolex Sports Car Series and has competed in the Nürburgring 24 Hour race. With five podium finishes in the first seven ALMS races this season, including wins at Long Beach, Laguna Seca and Mid-Ohio, Milner and co-driver Oliver Gavin are in a great position to win the driver’s championship in the highly competitive GT class, as well as help to bring Corvette the GT manufacturers and team championships. We caught up with Milner at Mid-Ohio to get his view on the season so far.

SCI: You’re in your second year now as a Corvette driver. How do you like it?

Milner: It’s been great! I’ve had great teammates for both years that I’ve been here and it already feels like family with all the guys here.
