Flying Lizard Motorsport to take in IMSAs visit to Long Beach

Tuesday, April 09, 2024

 Flying Lizard Motorsports will make its highly-anticipated return to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at the prestigious Grand Prix of Long Beach on Saturday, April 20th. Elias Sabo and Andy Lee will compete in the GTD class, piloting the No. 28 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 on the downtown street circuit.

A local to the Long Beach, California area, Sabo has long wanted to race in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship event in front of his home crowd. Sponsored by 5.11 Tactical, the No. 28 Aston Martin livery will be orange and black, sporting the same look the entry carries in the SRO Fanatec GT World Challenge America series. 


“I couldn’t be more excited to be driving in the Long Beach Grand Prix this year,” said Sabo, a resident of Newport Beach. “This race is at my home track. It’s so exciting to be able to compete in front of a number of my friends and family who will be in attendance. Andy and I had originally entered the race in 2020 but it was canceled due to Covid. Now four years later we get a chance to compete in a bucket list race for me.”

The one-off return to IMSA is a full-circle moment as Flying Lizard Motorsports celebrates its 20thanniversary.
