Flying Lizard Qualifies 4th, 5th and 8th in GT2 for Lime Rock

July 11, 2008--Lakeville, CT-- In this afternoon's qualifying session, Joerg Bergmeister qualified the No. 45 fourth in GT2, Patrick Pilet in the No. 46 was fifth and Darren Law in the No. 44 was eighth.

Today is the only day of practice before the race tomorrow. Unfortunately, the combination of a new track configuration and a short and narrow circuit created a chaotic environment for today's sessions. The two one-hour practice sessions were shortened significantly as numerous cars ran into problems, resulting in red flag after red flag. The three Lizard Porsches avoided any major problems throughout the day, although the drivers didn't get the seat time they had hoped for and the cars are not yet at race setup.

Bergmeister commented on the session, "Our qualifying results were a little disappointing. In the No. 45 Porsche, we made some changes since this morning, but we are still fighting a big understeer. If we can fix that then we should be in good shape, but we definitely have some work to do for tomorrow. Overall, I think we are all still coming to grips with the new layout. The curbing and rumblestrips are coming up in places, which isn't helping much. Hopefully they'll have things sorted out on the track by the race tomorrow."

The driver lineup for Saturday's race is: Darren Law and Seth Neiman in the No. 44 Porsche, Joerg Bergmeister and Wolf Henzler in the No. 45 Porsche, and Johannes van Overbeek and Patrick Pilet in the No. 46 Porsche.
