Sonoma, CA – The countdown has begun to the ALMS season finale, the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The series' flagship event, which runs 1000 miles or 10 hours maximum, gets the green flag on Saturday, October 20 at 11:30 am ET. For the race, Porsche factory driver Patrick Pilet (France) will join season-long drivers Joerg Bergmeister (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA) in the No. 45 Flying Lizard Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. In the No. 44, Nick Tandy (UK) will join Marco Holzer (Germany) and Seth Neiman (USA).
Flying Lizard chief strategist Thomas Blam commented, "Although the 2012 season didn't start out that well, the second half has been pretty strong with a win at Lime Rock and three second place finishes. We still have a shot at finishing second in the drivers' championship so we'll be fighting hard. Petit Le Mans is always an exciting race; historically we've done well. Our goal is to end the season on a high note."
