Lizard1After big wins at the Rolex 24 at Daytona and 12 Hours of Sebring, Dion von Moltke has found himself a new home for the 2013 American Le Mans Series.

von Moltke has been recruited by Flying Lizard Motorsport to steer one of their GTC Porsches for the remainder of the season.

2013-03-16 at 22-46-39The Florida-based von Moltke won at the Rolex 24 for Alex Job Racing aboard a factory Audi R8 with Filipe Albuquerque, of Portugal, Edoardo Montara, of Switzerland, and Oliver Jarvis, of England.

He backed that up with his second consecutive GTC win at Sebring – also with Alex Job Racing alongside regular WeatherTech pilots Cooper MacNeil and Jeroen Blekemolen (pictured right).

“I really couldn’t be more excited. This whole year, so far, has been up in the air going from race-to-race, not really know what you were doing next,” von Moltke said.

“It makes it very difficult as a driver because you don’t have the security that lets you sit back, breathe, and really hone in and focus on the next race, if you don’t know where your next race will be.

“To be with a team of the caliber of Flying Lizard is really incredible as a driver. It’s something that you dream of.

“Coming up through the ranks when they got their Porsche factory development deal, I was just trying to make my way into sports car racing. I always looked up to Joerg Bergmeister, Patrick Long, Patrick Pilet and Marco Holzer driving their cars

“They were always at the front and always fighting for class wins at Sebring and battling for championships. It really speaks volumes for how the team works and the success they’ve had in the past.”

von Moltke will drive with Brian Wong this weekend aboard the No.44 Lizard Porsche while the second car will be driven by Spencer Pumpelly and Nelson Canache Jr.
