The Lizards picked up some much-needed season momentum with a second-place finish at the most recent ALMS race at Mid-Ohio August 4th. Bergmeister and Long are now fifth in the 2012 ALMS GT drivers' championship with 55 points. Oliver Gavin and Tommy Milner of the No. 4 Corvette lead with 93 points. The Lizards are fourth in the team championship with 66 points; Corvette Racing leads with 114 points. There are 88 points possible left in the season.
Lizard chief strategist Thomas Blam commented, "We've been on a roll for the last three races with two consecutive wins (at Lime Rock and Mosport) and a second- place finish. Although we didn't get the points at Mosport, at each race we've been up at the front, fighting for the win. Road America is fast track with a combination of long straightaways and high-speed turns; it's Joerg's favorite U.S. circuit. We all enjoy the four-hour format which gives us more time for pit stops and strategy. There'll be a large GT field again this weekend and it should be another exciting and very competitive race."
