Flying Lizard Qualifies 2nd and 10th for Lime Rock

July 17, 2009 - Lakeville, CT. In an exciting GT2 qualifying session today, the Lizards finished 2nd and 10th for Saturday's Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock. Risi Competizione No. 62 took the pole, but only after a late session challenge from Patrick Long in the Flying Lizard No. 45 Porsche.

After setting the fastest time halfway through the 20 minute session, Jamie Melo in the No. 62 had pitted to wait out the rest of qualifying. Patrick Long, in the No. 45, who had battled traffic in the first half of qualifying, then pushed to take P1, just beating out the No. 62's fast time. With six minutes left, the No. 62 immediately hit the track again for a flier that edged out Patrick, retaking P1 for the pole. Teammate Seth Neiman qualified the No. 44 tenth on the GT2 grid.
