Green Earth Team Gunnar Takes Top Honors In LMPC Class at the American Le Mans Series Presented by Tequila Patron at Long Beach

Stamford, CT | Posted on April 20th, 2010

Green Earth Technologies (Pink Sheets: GETG) is pleased to announce that their newly formed Green Earth Team Gunnar (GETG), the first ALMS team to run on environment-safe oil, G-OIL™, took top honors in the LMPC class at the American Le Mans Series presented by Tequila Patron at Long Beach on Saturday, April 17th. The duo of Gunnar Jeannette and Elton Julian brought the G-OIL car to the finish line, the first victory for the drivers and the team. While the G-OIL car picked up the top podium position, GET debuted their first ever G-OIL™ television commercial, a 30-second animated spot produced by Alliance, a division of Grey Group with music produced by Innervision Design.

The Green Earth Team Gunnar ORECA FLM09 car runs on G-OIL, the world's first and only bio-based and ultimate biodegradable motor oil approved by the American Petroleum Institute. The G-OIL car crossed the finish line at Long Beach by a lap over Sebring class winners Christophe Bouchut and Scott Tucker in Level 5 Motorsports' entries. The top three cars - the G-OIL/GETG, Level 5 and Genoa Racing entries - all led during the race, but it was Jeannette who brought the G-OIL car to its ultimate victory. This comes on the heels of finishing second in their very first race out at the 12 Hours of Sebring.

"At Sebring, we proved that G-OIL could run for twelve hours and get on pole," Jeannette said. "Our guys had a wonderful, wonderful pit stop to get us out in front of the other cars and all I had to do was bring it home. My dad (Kevin Jeannette) is from Long Beach, all our extended family is from here so it's even better to have them all here. We were really happy to get the car to the finish without problems."

The weekend was all about being green, from G-OIL's victory lap to the introduction of the American Le Mans Series' "Green Dream Team," which appointed environmentally conscious drivers as "green ambassadors" for the series, reinforcing the message of the Series' green initiatives. Gunnar Jeannette was honored to become one of these ambassadors. In fact, the American Le Mans Series is the only major race series in the world in which leading OEM's can develop, test and fast-track diverse innovative technologies that result in more fuel efficient, environmentally sustainable vehicles.

"It is quite appropriate that our win at Long Beach took place during Earth Week, a time to honor the environment and the planet, doing our part to save the earth without having to sacrifice a thing," said Jeffrey Loch, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer of Green Earth Technologies. "We have proven that if Green Earth Team Gunnar can race on G-OIL, your car can run on it too, and I couldn't be prouder of the team and their accomplishments. On to the next race!"
