Darren Law and Flying Lizard Motorsports Hoping to Repeat Winning Ways for ALMS Enduro at Lime Rock

June 27, 2004 Phoenix, Arizona -- Fresh from a hard fought win at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, ALMS regular Darren Law and the Flying Lizard team are hoping to again put the team's #45 ShoreTel/eSilicon/Brocade Porsche GT3 RSR into victory lane at the ALMS New England Grand Prix. The 3rd round of the 2004 American Le Mans season will be held at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, Connecticut July 2 - 5. Law will be back with season long co-driver Johannes van Overbeek of San Francisco, and both drivers are eager to tackle the tight and twisty Lime Rock circuit for the scheduled 2 hour and 45 minute endurance contest.

Law is optimistic of the team's chances for success, but is also aware of the competition involved.

"We flat out had a great race at Mid-Ohio, and we're hoping we can continue to perform at that level," remarked Law. "The ALMS is a truly great endurance series though, and we are up against some great racing efforts. We're going to have to be on the top of our game every weekend."

The New England Grand Prix marks the first time that the ALMS has visited Lime Rock. The tight 1.5 mile circuit promises close racing action for all four classes of cars.

"I really enjoy Lime Rock," said Law when asked about the tight confines of the Lime Rock circuit combined with 30 race cars. "It'll be some great race action for sure, and traffic will probably play a big roll in the outcome of the race. Lap times will be pretty quick, so pit strategy is going to be extremely important."

After a three-month break between the Sebring and Watkins Glen races, the ALMS schedule packs in five races over the next two months.

"We're definitely going to be very busy over the next couple of months," said Law. "Back to back race weekends can take their toll, and it will be a test of how well the teams can adapt. I'm very confident in the ability of the Flying Lizard team to tackle this challenge."

The New England Grand Prix is set to begin at 3:00 pm EST Saturday July 5. The race will be carried live on SPEED. Log onto www.americanlemans.com for more information on race and broadcast schedules as well as ticket sales.
