Bryan Sellers, born 19 August 1982, is an American born racing driver, whom competes in the 2018/19 FIA Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing.[1] A former Team USA Scholarship winner and USF2000 Champion, Sellers came to the eTrophy as the most experienced driver in the field, with almost twenty years of racing experience in single seater and sports cars.[2]

Background

Sellers' career began in karting, with the youngster quickly rising through the ranks of the WKA scene to win the Spec 100 Open class in 1998.[2] Sellers would debut in racing car later that year, before securing a drive in the Skip Barber Formula Dodge series in 1999.[2] Two seasons in Formula Dodge saw Sellers ultimately win his first significant title in a racing car in 1999, before making his Pro Dodge debut in 2000.[2]

Indy Dreams

Sellers moved onto what was to become the "Road to Indy" ladder in 2002 after securing a drive in the USF2000 championship, and would ultimately earn the Team USA Scholarship in 2001.[2] Sellers used the prize money from that to challenge for the USF2000 crown in 2002, which he duly won, before progressing to the Atlantic Championship a year later.[2] However, funding issues during Sellers' two years in the Atlantic Championship saw him ultimately slip out of the single seater scene, with the American duly switching focus to sportscars.[2]

ALMS Alms

Sellers moved to the American Le Mans Series full time in 2005, although his full maiden campaign was best with retirements.[2] Another difficult season in 2006 saw Sellers move to the Rolex Sports Car Series for 2008, with the American duly claiming third in class on his debut at the Rolex 24 at Daytona.[2] However, Sellers' time in the Rolex series would again be beset by retirements, with Sellers transferring his colours back to the ALMS in 2010.[2]

Sellers would claim his first class wins in the GT class during 2011, becoming a consistent points finisher through until the end of the ALMS in 2013.[2] He duly moved into the IMSA United SportsCar Championship when the ALMS merged with the Roles Series in 2014, having won his class at the final ALMS race at Petit Le Mans.[2] Sellers would become one of the most consistent drivers in the new "GT Daytona" class over subsequent seasons, collecting several class wins through to 2018.[2] Indeed, Sellers would win the GTD Championship with Paul Miller Racing in 2018.[3]

Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy History

Sellers would first entertain an entry into the Jaguar I-Pace eTrophy when the series was first announced, approaching Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing as they confirmed their interest in the new series.[4] Negotiations between Sellers and RLLR came to a swift conclusion, with the American duly announced as their first driver, joined by ex-Formula E racer Katherine Legge.[1] The two would attend all of the pre-season tests ahead of the inaugural 2018/19 eTrophy campaign, before making his debut at the season opening round in Ad Diriyah.[5]
