Flying Lizard Seeks to Clinch GT2 Titles at Laguna Seca Season Finale

October 5, 2009 - Sonoma, California - Back in California after a soggy, shortened Petit Le Mans, Flying Lizard is readying for the ALMS season finale this Saturday at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca in Salinas, California. The team has led the GT2 drivers' and team championships since the second race of the 2009 season, but the title is still open and it's down to the final race.

In the Flying Lizard No. 45 Porsche, Joerg Bergmeister and Patrick Long are 19 points ahead of Jaime Melo and Pierre Kaffer of the No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari. Laguna Seca is worth 25 points for first place, so if the No. 45 finishes tenth or better (and completes 70 percent of the overall leader's race length, which is required to score points), Bergmeister and Long will win the GT2 drivers' championship and Flying Lizard will win the team championship-no matter where the No. 62 finishes. With third place worth 18 points, if the No. 62 finishes third or worse, the No. 45 will win the championship, even if they do not finish the race. In the No. 44 Flying Lizard Porsche, Johannes van Overbeek will team with Seth Neiman, who is in seventh place in the drivers' championships.
