Darren Law and Flying Lizard Motorsports Lead ALMS GT Driver Points

July 5, 2004 Phoenix, Arizona -- It was a strategy filled July 5th running of the ALMS New England Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park that saw Darren Law, Johannes van Overbeek and the Flying Lizard race team finish a tantalizingly close 2nd to the Ferrari 360 of Ralph Kellners and Anthony Lazzaro. Their well-earned podium finish amidst intermittently rainy and slick conditions, places the Flying Lizard drivers at the top of the ALMS GT Driver's points chase.

After qualifying 8th for the third ALMS race of the 2004 season, the driving duo of Law and van Overbeek steadily moved the team's #45 ShoreTel/eSilicon/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR to the front of the field. The team was helped by two, well-timed and quickly executed, tire stops to fit Michelin rubber that would meet the changing track conditions.

"Johannes did a great job in the rain," remarked Law after the race. "By the time I got in, the track was dry, and I was pushing as hard as possible to keep ahead of the Alex Job cars. There is a long way to go this season, but it does feel good knowing that we're leading the GT points right now."

Law, van Overbeek and the entire Flying Lizard squad have only two weeks off before they head out to Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, California for the Infineon Grand Prix of Sonoma. The July 18 race will be carried live on CBS. Starting at 3 pm EST.
