DAREEN LAW AND FLYING LIZARD MOTORSPORTS HOPING
TO REPEAT WINNING WAYS FOR ALMS ENDURO AT LIME ROCK
American Le Mans
Series standouts Darren Law of Phoenix, Johannes van Overbeek of
San Francisco and the entire Flying Lizard Motorsports squad took
top honors in the GT category of this weekend's ALMS at Mid-Ohio
endurance event. Law and van Overbeek piloted the team's #45
Michelin shod ShoreTel/ eSilicone/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR to a commanding
35.578-second win over the Alex Job Porsche of works drivers Timo
Bernhard and Jorg Bergmeister.
Law was ecstatic with the win, and was quick to credit the work
of the Flying Lizard team. "It feels really good to take this
win," said Law. "We knew we had a solid race car
the whole weekend, and with all the testing we have been doing we
were pretty quick right off the trailer. I'm also proud that
we were able to win a race like this in only the second ALMS event
for this team. There are some really competitive teams in
GT, and the competition makes this win all the more enjoyable."
Law qualified the Flying Lizard car 4th for the start of the timed
2 hour 45 minute endurance contest, which was held amidst beautiful
conditions in Lexington, Ohio. After a patient start which
saw Law drop to 5th he steadily worked his way to 2nd place before
turning the car over to co-driver van Overbeek.
Said Law in pit lane following his stint, "The car is handling
great, and I've got to thank the crew guys for getting the stop
done so quick. I think we probably gained a position here
in the pits. I followed David (Murray ) for a bunch of laps,
and I think the lack of airflow to front of the car made the brake
pedal go a bit soft. The car still stops well though, and
I'm sure Johannes (van Overbeek) will figure it out. He's
been hustling the car well all weekend."
Law, van Overbeek, and the entire Flying Lizard team won't be spending
too much time celebrating their Mid-Ohio GT victory though, as they
will pack up and head to Lime Rock Park for the American Le Mans
Series New England Grand Prix to be held the weekend of July 2nd
through the 5th.
