Flying Lizard Announces GT Program for the 2011 American Le Mans Series Season

November 16, 2010 -- Sonoma, California -- Flying Lizard Motorsports announced today preliminary details of its 2011 racing program. The Sonoma, California-based privateer team will return to the American Le Mans Series, fielding two Porsche 911 GT3 RSRs--the No. 45 and No. 44--in the GT class for the nine-race season.

"2010 was a phenomenal year for the ALMS and GT was clearly the place to be," said Seth Neiman, Flying Lizard Team Principal and Driver of the No. 44 Porsche. "We fought a long, tough battle all season, and came away with the drivers' championship. All credit goes to some very tough racing by Joerg (Bergmeister) and Patrick (Long) and an incredible performance by the crews at every single event this year."

Neiman continued, "For 2011, of course we'll be competing again for all of the ALMS GT championships. The ALMS calendar is solid and with some new venues and times it will help keep us all on our toes. Additionally, next year we will increase our emphasis on the important endurance races worldwide."

Jens Walther, President and CEO of Porsche Motorsports North America (PMNA), added, "Flying Lizard and Porsche have forged a great relationship, combining the expertise that both organizations bring to the track; the race results speak for themselves. I am excited to continue our partnership for 2011 and am looking forward to our eighth consecutive season with Flying Lizard competing for the GT championships."
