Another Podium for the Lizards: No. 45 2nd in GT at Mid-Ohio; No. 44 7th
August 4, 2012 - Lexington, Ohio - The Lizards celebrated their second podium of the year today as Joerg Bergmeister and Patrick Long brought the Porsche 911 GT3 in to second place at Mid-Ohio, just over two-tenths behind the No. 4 Corvette. The No. 44 of Seth Neiman and Marco Holzer finished 7th.
Patrick Long started the No. 45 third on the GT grid in sweltering Ohio heat; Seth Neiman started the No. 44 12th. The No. 55 BMW was on the pole, with the No. 4 Corvette in P3. The field safely navigated a very crowded start, with Long moving to P2 at the start, swapping positions with the Corvette. 20 minutes into the race, the No. 55 went wide, giving Long an opportunity to take the lead, which he held through most of his 100-minute stint.
