"I've had a lot of success here: three wins, including one overall. And, of course, last year, being on the pole in the No. 45 DP was definitely a rush. We've also had some tough breaks at this track. In 2011, we were the fastest car on track but weren't able to translate that into results replica cartier Tank Solo, and in 2010 we had a strong lead until a problem at the end knocked us back to second." Over his career, Rockenfeller has won numerous elite distance races, including the Rolex 24 (overall in 2010), the 24 Hours of Le Mans (overall in 2010, GT in 2005) and several championships including the 2008 Le Mans Series title. In 2006, Rockenfeller and Long drove together in a DP and won twice overall during the Grand Am season. "This is such a big event," Flying Lizard chief strategist Thomas Blam said. "We've never won here, but we've come close. After taking a break for a few years we came back to finish second in 2010 replica watches uk, and last year had a superfast car.
