SEPTEMBER 27, 2004
DARREN LAW AND FLYING LIZARD MOTORSPORTS EARN HARD FOUGHT 5TH PLACE IN ALMS PETIT LE MANS


It was a hard fought 1,000 mile 9.5 hour race that saw Darren Law, Johannes van Overbeek, Patrick Huisman, and the entire Flying Lizard crew overcome adversity to finish 5th in this weekend's American Le Mans Series Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta.

Despite losing several laps to the GT class leaders early on in the race due to contact, Law of Phoenix, van Overbeek of San Francisco, and Huisman of the Netherlands, staged a noteworthy comeback, as they continued undaunted in the team's #45 red and silver ShoreTel/eSilicon/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR. The team's well-earned 5th place finish ensures that they can carry GT class championship hopes to the final race of the season at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

"We drove flat out the whole race," remarked Law. "We knew it was going to be tough to catch the Job cars, but we just put our heads down and pushed hard. The car was really good all the way through, and I'm glad we were able make up as many positions as we did." It was evident from the action in the pit lane area that the Flying Lizard crew was not giving up.

"The pit stops were super quick," said Law following the event. "That definitely helped us work our way back through much of the GT field."
The Flying Lizard team travels next to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the final round of the 2004 ALMS schedule. The Fry’s Electronic Sports Car Championships is scheduled for the weekend of October 15-17.
