Le Mans Twelve Hour Update
June 12, 2011 – 03.30 CET June 12, Circuit de la Sarthe – Just past the halfway point at the 24 Heures du Mans, Spencer Pumpelly is first in GTE Am in the No. 81 and Lucas Luhr is 7th in GTE Pro. We’ve had just two hours of green flag since the lengthy caution to repair the damage caused by the accident with the No. 01 Audi. The Lizards have continued to run relatively problem-free, and the drivers are double stinting over the night.
After the cleanup from the accident, the green flag flew at 01.00 CET this morning: Patrick Long was in the No. 80 and Spencer Pumpelly in the No. 81. 30 minutes after the caution, Spencer turned the wheel of the No. 81 over to Darren Law, who took the GTE Am lead shortly after. At 2.30 am, Patrick pitted for driver change to Lucas Luhr and 30 minutes later Spencer again took over for Darren. Shortly after taking the wheel, Spencer lost some time with an unplanned pit stop to replace a punctured tire, but still retains P2 in GTE Am. The No. 80 is still P7 in GTE Pro. The No. 74 Corvette leads GTE Pro and the No. 61 Ferrari leads GTE Am.
