PORSCHE CUP STANDINGS FEATURE STRONG SERIES FLAVOR

The American Le Mans Series once again is well-represented in the final Porsche Cup standings for 2008. Australian Alex Davison won the Porsche Cup, awarded annually to the world's most successful private Porsche driver. Davison, 29 years old from Melbourne, earned his Porsche Cup points at the wheel of a 911 GT3 RSR in four different series racing all distances, including a second place GT2 finish for Flying Lizard Motorsports at this year's Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring presented by Fresh from Florida.

American Le Mans Series drivers held six of the top 10 positions in the standings. A Flying Lizard driver won the Porsche Cup for the third straight year joining Wolf Henzler (2006) and Johannes van Overbeek (2007).

Davison teamed with Seth Neiman and Darren Law at Sebring as Flying Lizard finished 1-2 in class for the first time.

Farnbacher Loles Racing's Dirk Werner finished second in the standings following a season that saw a GT2 victory at Road America and two class pole positions. Van Overbeek and Law were third and fourth respectively and in the final results.

Dyson Racing also saw a pair of top-10 finishes. Marino Franchitti (eighth) and Butch Leitzinger (ninth) drove one of the team's two Porsche RS Spyders for the full season. They finished second overall and in P2 at Sebring (with Andy Lally) and third in P2 at Road America.
