Aussie aiming to chase Clio Cup dream
After a taste of international motorsport, Queenslander Ash Miller is on a quest to pursue a motorsport career in the United Kingdom.
Having competed in the AirAsia Clio Cup at the final round at Brands Hatch earlier this month, the 20-year-old is planning to move to the UK in February to try and sure up a full season in the competitive Clio Cup.
“There’s no two ways about it. You have to live over there,” Miller told Speedcafe.com.
“To be right in there with people who have been there and done that, it’s the only way to make progress. Half the battle is getting over there, and thats what I’m committed to.”
Miller plans to compete in a full Clio Cup series, which is part of the BTCC support category bill, receiving live television.
Speaking on his debut in the class at Brands, where he was the only international driver competing, he says the class is very challenging.
“The pack was so competitive, and fighting back through the experienced guys was an awesome challenge,” he said.
“They definitely know what they’re doing, so you have to use a bit of creative driving to tackle them, was a great experience and a fantastic learning curve.”
Driving for Scuderia Vittoria in the 19-car races, Miller finished 12th and 13th in his maiden drives.
