FLINT, Mich. – JDC-Miller Motorsports and the team of Michael Johnson and Stephen Simpson are pleased to announce an important extension to their partnership with globally-renowned brand Unitronic for the upcoming 2020 racing season.
“I’m excited to continue working with Unitronic,” said Johnson. “They have been supporting me over the last year and a great group of people to work with. With their experience in the Audi aftermarket scene, they are a perfect fit for our team.”
Unitronic offers staged Performance Software and Hardware solutions for Volkswagen®, Audi®, Porsche®, Seat®, and Skoda® vehicles that allow drivers to improve their engine’s performance while reducing fuel consumption, providing unmatched reliability, daily driving comfort and pleasure. All being done while maintaining strict quality control standards that are in direct accordance with the specifications established by the manufacturers. Unitronic strives to push the boundaries and provide clients with products that are at the cutting edge of technological advancements without compromise.
“Unitronic, John Staffi and its Authorized Dealers were great partners of JDC-Miller and our No. 54 Audi RS 3 LMS TCR car in 2019,” said Josh Reasoner of MJR Partnerships/Media Relations. “With all the success we’re building towards in IMSA, we are humbled to have the support of a company that’s on the leading edge of vehicle performance globally. It’s our expectation to win a Michelin Pilot Challenge Championship in 2020 and Unitronic will be a driving force with us.”
Positioned at the forefront of its industry, Unitronic occupies a similar place on the Universal Coating No. 54 Audi RS 3 LMS TCR car. The red Unitronic corporate logo helps lead the way on race day, appearing on either side of the front bumper of the vehicle.
“I am very excited to have Unitronic on our No. 54 Audi RS 3 LMS TCR car for the 2020 season,” said Simpson. “Unitronic are a great company with some quality people and it is a pleasure to represent them in the Michelin Pilot Challenge. It is our goal to enjoy a successful season with them both on and off the track.”
Johnson and Simpson will be back on the track this week, racing in the BMW Endurance Challenge, as part of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, at Daytona International Speedway in Florida as the first official event of the season for the 2020 Michelin Pilot Challenge.
Last season, in qualifying for the BMW Endurance Challenge, Johnson made history, breaking the TCR course record and capturing the pole position, however, on race day the team was not able to finish due to an incident on the track.
Earlier this month, at the Roar Before the Rolex, a three-day event that featured six practice sessions, the team finished strong, as Simpson broke the two-minute mark during the final run, posting the top time in the TCR class for the weekend at 1:59.846 (106.932 mph).
