Law Wraps Up busy Month of May and Prepares for Sahlen's Six Hours

Endurance racer Darren Law hasn't seen much of his Phoenix home lately as he wraps up a very busy month of racing in May with rides in the Grand American Rolex Series, Grand Am Cup, and American Le Mans Series. Before he gets a break, Darren will be heading to upstate New York for the Grand American Rolex Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen at Watkins Glen International Raceway this upcoming weekend.

Law's month of May began at Laguna Seca for the U.S. Sports Car Invitational where Law teamed with David Donohue to place the #58 Red Bull liveried Brumos Porsche Fabcar a competitive 5th at the checkered flag. Darren then went on to finish 8th with Brian Cunningham and the #50 Marcus Motorsports Porsche 997 in the Grand Sport Class of the Grand Am Cup.

Darren's brief time at home during the month of May came with Grand American Sports Car Series visit to Phoenix International Raceway for the Gainsco Grand Prix. Law and Donohue finished 12th in the Rolex series race with the #58 Brumos entry, and then Law and Cunningham took the Marcus Motorsports car to a fine 8th in the Grand Am Cup.

The highlight of Darren's racing in May came with a well-earned and competitive 3rd place finish in the Mid-Ohio American Le Mans Series event with the Flying Lizard Motorsports team and their #44 PortalPlayer/ShoreTel Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Law joined team principal Seth Neiman on the podium along with race winners and drivers of the #45 Flying Lizard entry Johannes van Overbeek and Wolf Henzler. The dual podium finish was the first for the Flying Lizard crew and Neiman's third place was the best of his American Le Mans Series career.

Darren's last race of May was the Grand Am Cup series event at Lime Rock Park in Connecticut. Law took the controls of the Marcus Motorsports Grand Sport entry Porsche from teammate Brian Cunningham, and despite a strong run that promised a strong finish contact late in the race due to a braking problem relegated the #50 to a 29th finishing position.

Darren Law Quote
It's definitely been a busy month for me with some great racing. We have really been up and down with our finishes in the Brumos car and hopefully David (Donohue) and I can place well at the Watkins race. JI had a great time with the Flying Lizard guys at Mid Ohio, and I'm very happy that we were able to get Seth (Neiman) on the podium. The team is very strong and seems to get better each year -- a double podium finish is big for any team, and I'm glad I could be a part of it.

Standings
Darren currently sits 14th in driver championship points in the Rolex series and 18th in points in the Grand Am Cup series. There are seven races remaining in the 2006 Rolex series schedule and five events left for the Grand Am Cup.

Info and Upcoming Events
Next up for Darren is a visit to Watkins Glen International Raceway for the Grand American Rolex Series Sahlen's Six Hours of the Glen. Law will again pilot the #58 Brumos Porsche with teammate David Donohue.
