Liddell Back In The ALMS
They all love to race in the GT2 Class of the ALMS, don’t they, these GT drivers?

Robin Liddell gets a chance to return to the ALMS this Saturday, at Portland, replacing Klaus Graf at Alex Job Racing, Graf being unavailable owing to “scheduling conflicts”. Liddell will partner usual AJR racer Mike Rockenfeller.

“It will be good to drive with Mike as he is held in high regard,” comments the Scot, “and he knows the car/team very well, so I am sure he will help me to get accustomed to everything quickly.”

Liddell is a winner at Portland already – in 2004, in the Intersport LMP2 Lola. He finished fourth there last year, in GT2, in the factory Panoz, an event in which the big V8s were struggling for straight line speed against the Porsches.

Rockenfeller and Graf have scored one win this year, at Houston, but seemed likely to finish better than their eventual fourth at last Saturday’s event at Salt Lake City. Rockenfeller drove a blinding opening stint.

“I am absolutely thrilled to have been asked to drive the car,” adds Liddell, “as I have long been an admirer of Alex Job Racing and their professionalism. The 23 car in particular has had a great history and built up quite an impressive record with some great drivers over the last few years.”

Here's the late-race GT2 action at Miller Motorsports Park.
