DAREEN LAW AND FLYING LIZARD MOTORSPORTS TAKE THIRD CONSECUTIVE PODUM AT ALMS INFINEON GRAND PRIX


Despite dominating the GT class for much of the July 18th running of the American Le Mans Series Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma, Darren Law and Johannes van Overbeck had to settle for second place following a pit lane technical infraction. The Flying Lizard drivers had taken the team's #45 silver and red ShoreTel/eSilicon/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR to as much as a full lap lead of the GT field during the 2 hour 45 minute endurance event.
 
Although they took the checkered flag well ahead of the remaining GT class cars, Law and van Overbeek were notified of the 42 second penalty following the event. The penalty placed the Flying Lizard car 2nd, behind the Alex Job Porsche of Timo Bernhard and Jorg Bergmeister.
 
Despite the 2nd place finish, Law of Phoenix and van Overbeek of San Francisco continue to lead the GT class championship points race, and are cautiously optimistic heading to the next event.
 
"I can't say we were all that happy about the decision to dock us the 42 seconds," remarked Law following the race. "But rules are there for a reason, and it does feel good to know that we were able to win on track. It's shaping up to be a tough fight to the end of the season."
 
The next stop for the Flying Lizard squad is Portland International Raceway for the ALMS Portland Grand Prix to be held July 25th.
