Flying Lizard Motorsports will return to defend its title in the 25 Hours of Thunderhill, confirming Wednesday its driver lineup and continuation of its partnership with Toyo Tires for the December around-the-clock enduro.
Darren Law and Johannes van Overbeek will be joined this year in the team’s Audi R8 LMS ultra by Dion von Moltke and Mike Hedlund.
The California-based team has continued tire development with Toyo, with multiple tests held throughout the U.S.
“We look forward to the challenges of this year’s 25 Hours, and are returning to prove once again that Toyo Proxes Slicks are the tires to have for drivers looking to dominate in any form of road racing,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.
“The race conditions at this event are notoriously unpredictable and we welcome the various technical challenges it presents our engineers.
“We have some new cool weather and intermediate rain tire options to evaluate for this event and we look forward to gathering important development data while pursuing another overall victory.”
The team claimed victory in last year’s race by a commanding 35 laps over a number of GT cars and entry level prototypes.
