Flying Lizard No. 80 Retired in Hour 15
June 14, 2009 -- 06:00 CET -- The Flying Lizard No. 80 has been retired following an accident at approximately 5:25 CET, halfway through Hour 15. The No. 80 Porsche had been fourth in GT2 at the time of the accident. Following a driver change from Seth Neiman to Darren Law, on Darren's outlap, he had an incident in the brake zone at the first Chicane which ended with a heavy impact into the tires. We don't know the cause at this point. The No. 80 is out of the race, although we have not been able to reach the car to evaluate the damage. Darren is being checked over by track medical, but he appears to be fine.
