CYPRESS, CA – Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp. (Toyo Tires®) and #flyinglizard Motorsports have their eyes set on a third consecutive overall win at the NASA 25 Hours of Thunderhill next month.  The team will return to the track with the #45 Toyo Tires / #flyinglizard Audi® R8 LMS and Toyo Proxes Slicks ready to defend their back-to-back overall and ES class wins.  Considered North America’s longest endurance #racingevent, the 25 Hours is one of the premier events held annually by National #auto Sport Association (NASA). 

"We really enjoyed competing in the 25 Hours of #thunderhill these last two years, and we’re thrilled to be coming back for a third time in hopes of defending our title,” said Darren Law, program manager, #flyinglizard Motorsports. “It’s such a fun event to do as a competitor, and our effort is an important part in the development of the Toyo Proxes Slicks. We’re looking forward to what we can accomplish this time around."

In addition to the Audi R8 LMS, Toyo Tires and #flyinglizard Motorsports will field a Porsche® Cayman® GT4 competing in the newly formed Toyo Tires GT Challenge class.  This new spec class features equally prepared Porsche® Cayman® GT4 Clubsport and GT4 Clubsport MR race cars competing on 18-inch Toyo Proxes RR DOT competition tires.

“We are thrilled to once again partner with #flyinglizard Motorsports and together fight for our third consecutive overall win and ES class victory at the 25 Hours,” said Marc Sanzenbacher, senior manager, motorsports, Toyo Tire U.S.A. Corp.  “They have been an amazing partner in #racing and development. We are also equally excited to have expanded our efforts with an entry into the inaugural Toyo Tires GT Challenge class, as we look to put the iconic FLM and Toyo Tires livery on the top step of the podium in that class as well.”
