Dyson Racing's G-OIL® Sponsored Mazda Lola Wins American Le Mans Series LMP1 Championship Secures coveted Michelin GREEN-X Challenge Trophy for 2011 Season
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Earth Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: GETG), a leading manufacturer and marketer of "green" environmentally safer consumer packaged goods and products, announced today that at the closing race of the American Le Mans Series, the Dyson #16 G-OIL® ModSpace/Construct Corps car won the American Le Mans Prototype (LMP1) class and the Michelin Green X Challenge for the 2011 season.
In the Le Mans Prototype class, the #16 Dyson Lola-Mazda dominated the point's standings, winning the drivers' championship for Guy Smith and Chris Dyson, the team championship for Dyson Racing and the manufacturer championship for Mazda.

Points are awarded to teams in either the LMP or GT categories.
