Flying Lizard Finishes Second, Fourth and Seventh in GT2 at Road America
August 09, 2008 -- Elkhart Lake, WI -- In a four-hour race dominated by yellow flags, the Flying Lizard squad secured their seventh podium in a row at today's 2008 Generac 500 at Road America. The No. 45 of Joerg Bergmeister and Wolf Henzler finished second, the No. 46 of Johannes van Overbeek and Patrick Pilet finished fourth, and the No. 44 of Seth Neiman and Darren Law finished seventh.
In the GT2 field, the many race cautions helped cars conserve fuel and kept pit stops to a minimum. In what was a fairly uneventful race for GT2 until the last few minutes, a late-race upset led to a hair-raising finish as the No. 87 Farnbacher Loles Porsche took the win and Wolf Henzler, in third place on the last lap, pulled off a daring pass with just seconds to go to take second place.
