At the Armor All Gold Coast 600 held recently on the Gold Coast of Australia, we were able to catch up with Pat Long. Pat was not fancied by Australian media for the race but proved to be the shining light of the international drivers for the weekend - proving what we already know, and what some Aussie journos didn't - that he is a top class racer.

He has spent most of his career with Porsche, and the last few years with Flying Lizard Motorsports. He started his car racing career in Formula Fords but didn't really shine. Despite this he caught the eye of Tom Milner and Porsche. He ran the in the Porsche Supercup for a couple of years before starting in the ALMS and Le Mans. Since that time, he has had 30 class wins in sportscars and four overall wins (all in Grand Am). He has won his class at Daytona (2009) and Le Mans (2004, 2007) and taken back to back ALMS GT2 class titles (2009, 2010).
