March 15, 2008 -- Sebring, Florida -- With just over three hours left in the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring, Flying Lizard Porsche No. 45 is leading the GT2 race, with the No. 44 Lizard Porsche 2 laps behind in second place.

The No. 46 Porsche is in P8. The No. 45 and 44 have been in P1 and P2 since the race halfway point when the No. 62 Risi Ferrari and the No. 87 Tafel Porsche collided on track and were both subsequently retired. The No. 46, which had sustained significant damage early in the race and was under repair in the pits for more than an hour, continued to be dogged by problems. Approximately 7 and a half hours into the race, with Patrick Pilet at the wheel of the No. 46, he reported a problem and had to return slowly to the pits for repair of a broken axle. He lost nearly 20 minutes from the time the car began to slow, which cost him two positions on track, and he was back out in P10.

However, with even more attrition in the GT2 field (six of the 15 starting cars are either retired or under lengthy repair), the No. 46 has moved up to P 8, 1 lap down from the No. 71 Tafel Ferrari in P 7. Currently in the cars are: Darren Law (No. 44); Wolf Henzler (No. 45); Johannes van Overbeek (No. 46).
