Coming from a racing family and starting his  Le Mans career with the Multimatic Panoz, he soon moved from the team to race with the LNT Panoz and then Corvette.

Racing at Le Mans was always a dream for Milner, though seeing how tough it was during his father’s career and with the PTG team, it was something he always knew he would have to work for. Then joining Corvette, the pressure would build but Milner was more than up for the task.

Now Corvette Racing in its 20th year, 19th visit to Le Mans is looking for its 9th class win. We discuss this with Milner before the second qualifying session at the Le Mans 24 Hours
