Flying Lizard No. 80 Retired from 24 Heures du Mans in Hour 4 June 12, 2010 -- Circuit de la Sarthe -- The Flying Lizard No. 80 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR of Joerg Bergmeister, Darren Law and Seth Neiman was retired from the 24 Heures du Mans due to mechanical issues. After starting ninth on the grid, all three drivers cycled uneventfully through their stints until halfway through hour 4, when an incident damaged the right radiator. The crew replaced the radiator and front undertray and repaired some minor body damage. Unfortunately, after one outlap, the car had to return to the garage again and was retired due to unrepairable mechanical issues.

Team principal Seth Neiman said, "Le Mans once again bites us very hard. It's not easy to accept being out of the race this early, but that's racing. I know our crew will examine every part of this experience and do what it takes to make us even stronger in the future."

Up next for the Lizards is the round 4 of the American Le Mans Series at Miller Motorsports Park in Salt Lake City, July 11.
