Flying Lizard Returns to Road America for Porsche Carrera Cup North America

In the hearts of sports car racing fans everywhere, Flying Lizard Motorsports and Porsche have long been associated together as a dream combination. Next week, race fans will see Flying Lizard Motorsports enter a Porsche into the Porsche Carrera Cup North America doubleheader with driver Chris Bellomo.

“We are not only excited to be bringing Flying Lizard Motorsports to the Porsche Carrera Cup series but also glad to be in the IMSA paddock again as well,” said Program Manager Darren Law. “Chris will run select events this year in IMSA as part of his training program to expand his efforts in 2022. Together with his coach, Johannes van Overbeek, he has had a lot of success so far, growing and improving every weekend with a methodical approach to improving his driving. I am looking forward to watching his progress this upcoming weekend and the remainder of the year.”

Bellomo, who has raced with the Lizards for several years, has a full plate this season, also competing in USAC’s Porsche Sprint Challenge North America and the Yokohama Drivers Cup. Each series has offered new challenges, allowing Bellomo to develop as a race car driver, with former Lizard Johannes Van Overbeek as his coach.

“We have been looking forward to rejoining the Carrera Cup series at Road America since the schedules were released,” said Bellomo. “I have always loved racing at Road America and the series has always had an outstanding field of talented drivers and this year is no exception. Dieter Beuhler, along with the Flying Lizard crew have worked extremely hard throughout the year and the car seems to be getting better and better each race. Johannes and I have taken positive steps forward with my driving technique and race-craft so far this season and we are hoping that will continue at Road America.”
