Lizards team with TRG for Rolex 24

28 December 2009

Flying Lizard Motorsports has announced that The Racer's Group will enter a TRG/Flying Lizard Porsche in the GT class of the Rolex 24 at Daytona, the season-opener for the Grand Am Rolex Series season.

The driver line-up in the #66 Porsche GT3 Cup Car will see Jorg Bergmeister and Patrick Long join forces with Johannes van Overbeek and Lizards team boss Seth Neiman.

All four drivers will participate in the test January 8-10 at Daytona. The #66 will be managed by TRG, with some Lizards at the helm including Thomas Blam (chief strategist in the ALMS), Craig Watkins (chief engineer) and Tommy Sadler (crew chief and co-technical director).

"I've always loved the 24 Hours of Daytona, but given our other commitments, it just hasn't been practical to run here,” Neiman said. “Working with our Porsche cousins at TRG we have an opportunity to field a very strong entry. TRG has had consistent success in Grand-Am and I'm confident that they will deliver a solid programme.

"Jorg, Patrick and Johannes have a lot of combined experience here and of course, have shown that they excel in long races. And having Thomas, Craig and Tommy there will bring the familiarity of the Lizard team to the effort."
