Farnbacher Loles Racing led the GT2 class and held a top-two position for most of the first half of the Petit Le Mans, second-last race of the 2008 American Le Mans Series season.

Dirk Werner of Kissenbruck, Germany, started the No. 87 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR from second on the GT2 grid and took the class lead after 75 minutes of the 1000-mile / 10-hour race. Bryce Miller of Summit, N.J., and Jorg Hardt of Bonn, Germany, followed, both holding the lead.

Just before the four-hour mark, Hardt was hit by a prototype car, forcing an early pitstop and dropping him back to third. He quickly regained second, but was back in pit lane less than an hour later with a flat left-front tire. Werner took over, returning to the track sixth in class, three laps behind the GT2 leader.
