Muscle Milk Porsche RS Spyder Wins Michelin Green X Challenge at Lime Rock

Lime Rock, Conn. - July 24 - The Porsche RS Spyder of Muscle Milk Team CytoSport turned the double play in the American Le Mans Series Northeast Grand Prix at Lime Rock Park taking the overall race win and the MICHELIN® GREEN X® Challenge here at the fifth stop of the 2010 ALMS season.

With temperatures in the mid 90's and humidity to match, the hot and steamy track pushed cars and drivers to perform in extreme conditions.

In the process of winning the two hour 45 minute event at the historic 1.53-mile circuit, the independent Benicia, Calif. based team and drivers Greg Pickett and Klaus Graf became the first to claim a second MICHELIN® GREEN X® Challenge victory in 2010.

The MICHELIN® GREEN X® Challenge victory was the fourth of the 2010 season for Porsche which earlier this week confirmed plans to enter its exciting new Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid at the final race of the 2010 season.

"We are very pleased to win the Michelin Green X Challenge at Lime Rock, especially since we have now won it twice in GT for the 911 GT3 RSR and twice in LMP for the Porsche RS Spyder. Our goal is performance with efficiency, and today, the Muscle Milk Porsche did both," said Paul Ritchie, president of Porsche Motorsport North America, Inc.
