Flying Lizard Motorsports will return for another year of competition in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) in 2011 the Sonoma, CA based squad announced this week.
The team won the class drivers' championship in 2010 with Porsche works drivers Patrick Long and Jorg Bergmeister and will return with a two car attack, once more fielding Porsche 911 GT3 RSR with race numbers 44 and 45.
“2010 was a phenomenal year for the ALMS and GT was clearly the place to be,” said Seth Neiman, team principal and one driver of the No.44. “We fought a long, tough battle all season, and came away with the drivers’ championship. All credit goes to some very tough racing by Jorg and Patrick and an incredible performance by the crews at every single event this year.”
“For 2011, of course we’ll be competing again for all of the ALMS GT championships. The ALMS calendar is solid and with some new venues and times it will help keep us all on our toes. Additionally, next year we will increase our emphasis on the important endurance races worldwide.”
“Flying Lizard and Porsche have forged a great relationship, combining the expertise that both organizations bring to the track; the race results speak for themselves,” added Jens Walther, President and CEO of Porsche Motorsports North America. “I am excited to continue our partnership for 2011 and am looking forward to our eighth consecutive season with Flying Lizard competing for the GT championships.”
