Long 7th at Official 24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day

June 04, 2012

Flying Lizard completed a successful test today for the 2012 24 Heures du Mans. The California-based team used the test day to begin setup of the team’s two Le Mans entries: the No. 80 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR (in the GTE Pro class) and the No. 79 GT3 RSR (in the GTE Am class). Over the combined two four-hour sessions today, the No. 79 clocked the third fastest time in GTE Am of 4:01.284, and the No. 80 was seventh in GTE Pro with a 4:00.287.

The drivers of the No. 80 Porsche are Joerg Bergmeister (Germany), Patrick Long (USA) and Marco Holzer (Germany). The No. 79 drivers are Seth Neiman (USA), Spencer Pumpelly (USA), and Darren Law (USA). Bergmeister, Long, Holzer and Neiman all attended the test today. Pumpelly and Law were unable to attend due to Saturday’s Grand-Am Detroit 200 race, which Law won.

Festivities for the 2012 24 Hours of Le Mans begin next Monday, June 11, and the race runs Saturday-Sunday, June 16-17.
