Joerg Bergmeister brought the No. 45 Flying Lizard Porsche in second in GT today at the four-hour VIR 240 and teammate Marco Holzer crossed the finish fifth in GT in the No. 44.
The inaugural race had a rough start when the field bunched up in turn 1 on the first lap; the incident collected multiple cars. Joerg Bergmeister had started fifth on the grid in the No. 45 and Marco Holzer was sixth. Bergmeister was able to avoid most of the melee by going cross-country across the grass. Holzer also had to go wide off- course into the dirt to avoid a collision, sending him back to ninth place on the first lap.
