Flying Lizard Motorsport will return to Porsche GT4 machinery this year, having confirmed a two-car effort in Pirelli GT4 America SprintX.

The California-based team, which campaigned Audi R8 LMS GT4 cars in 2018, will make the switch back to Porsche with its new-for-2019 Cayman GT4 Clubsport in the SRO Motorsports America-run series.

Michael Dinan and Robby Foley have been named co-drivers of the first entry, with the second lineup to be announced at a later date.

Both Dinan and Foley first competed with the team in last year’s SprintX round at Utah Motorsports Campus.

“We are looking forward to again be working with Michael Dinan and Robby Foley,” said program manager Darren Law.

“We had the opportunity to work with both of them at one of our events last year, and we established a great relationship.

“This is an excellent continuation of our customer racing program. We have been working with young drivers for several years now and have watched them progress on to much success, and we expect the same for Michael and Robby this season. They both have a bright future.”

Dinan and Foley’s No. 21 Porsche GT4 will run a variation of the iconic Flying Lizard livery, to be unveiled at a later date.

The car made its public debut at the Roar Before the Rolex 24 earlier this month.

“All of us at Flying Lizard are excited about being back with Porsche and having the opportunity to race the new Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport,” Law added.

“We ran the first generation of the GT4 car in 2017 with a lot of success, and after all of the development that has gone into the second generation of the car, we’re looking forward to accomplishing even more in the Pirelli GT4 America championship.”
