DAREEN LAW AND FLYING LIZARD MOTORSPORTS EARN HARD FOUGHT SIXTH CONSECUTIVE PODIUM FINISH


American Le Mans series standouts Darren Law, Johannes van Overbeek and the entire Flying Lizard Motorsports crew earned their sixth consecutive GT class podium finish at the Road America 500 this past weekend. Law of Phoenix and van Overbeek of San Francisco shared driving duties in the team's #45 silver and red ShoreTel/eSilicon/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR, as they worked their way through the field to finish 3rd in class.

Despite struggling somewhat in qualifying, the team made a strategic decision to start from last place in the field, and subsequently took advantage of a rule allowing the use of new or "sticker" tires at the start. Law set off to make his way through the entire GT field, and brought the car in for a mid race pitstop and driver change in 2nd place.

Said Law following the event, "We started last by choice. After qualifying we decided to put a fresh set of tires on for the race. This was a good call since we knew we would have to push hard starting from the back of the grid. This was a good finish and yet another podium."

The Flying Lizard team left Road America in second place in the GT driver's championship points race with only two races left in the 2004 season. The team heads next to Road Atlanta for the Petit le Mans.

"We are really looking forward to the Petit Le Mans,” said Darren. "Our pit stops have been excellent, so I hope this will play to our advantage for the Atlanta race since it is about 10 hours long."
