Flying Lizard Motorsports Closes Out Season With Petit Le Mans
Flying Lizard's first season with its Audi R8 LMS race cars comes to a close at Road Atlanta, a 12-turn, 2.54 mile road course in the hills of Braselton, Georgia. The 12th race and season finale of the TUDOR United SportsCar Championship is Petit Le Mans, a 10-hour endurance contest to be run on Saturday, October 4th. The long race length means that Flying Lizard is bolstering its driver ranks with two up and coming young drivers; Alessandro Latif (UK/Italy) will join Seth Neiman (USA) and Dion von Moltke (South Africa) in the No. 35 PR Newswire / UBM Tech / eSilicon R8 LMS, with Andrew Palmer (USA) joining Nelson Canache Jr. (Venezuela) and Spencer Pumpelly (USA) in the No. 45 Spyder / Venezuela / eSilicon R8 LMS. Both cars are racing in the GT Daytona class, with full-time drivers Dion, Nelson, and Spencer sitting in the top ten in driver championship points entering the race. Alessandro returns to the team after solid top-5 finishes in his previous outings at Daytona and Sebring. Andrew raced with the team at Road America in the No. 35 and is coming off of a rookie season of SCCA World Challenge in which he finished 5th in points in the GT class.
