From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pratt & Miller Engineering and Fabrication is a company formed by Gary Pratt and Jim Miller in 1989.

Based out of New Hudson, Michigan, they have been one of General Motors official racing teams since 1999 when they were key in the development of the Chevrolet Corvette C5-R. Today, Pratt & Miller constructs, maintains, and runs the American Le Mans Series Corvette Racing team with Chevrolet Corvette C6.R as well as the Speed World Challenge Team Cadillac CTS-Vs. The company also builds and maintains the Pontiac GTO.Rs and Pontiac GXP.Rs for various teams in the Rolex Sports Car Series. The company also did work on the development of the Qvale Mangusta and Ford GT.

Since their alliance with General Motors, Pratt & Miller have won numerous championships and famous racing events. Corvette Racing has won their class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans six times, claimed the overall victory at the 24 Hours of Daytona in 2001, and won seven straight American Le Mans Series championships. Team Cadillac won the 2005 Speed World Challenge in the team's debut season, while The Racer's Group, running Pratt & Miller-built Pontiac GTO.Rs, won the Rolex Sports Car Series championship in 2006. GM Racing's tuned LS7.R small-block engine was also named the 2006 Global Motorsport Engine of the Year.

Pratt & Miller developed a road-going tuned version of the Chevrolet Corvette C6 named C6RS.
