In 2010, Flying Lizard No. 45 drivers Joerg Bergmeister and Patrick Long won a hard-fought battle for the GT drivers’ championship. In 2009 and 2008, the team swept all ALMS GT titles: drivers’ championship (Bergmeister and Long in 2009, Bergmeister and Wolf Henzler in 2008); Flying Lizard won the team championship; and Porsche won the manufacturer championship.

In 2009, Seth finished seventh in the GT2 drivers' championship, and in 2008 he was fifth, with a notable 2nd place finish at the 2008 Twelve Hours of Sebring (with Law and Alex Davison). He was ranked eighth in the Porsche Cup in 2006. Seth has competed in five 24 Heures du Mans races: finishing 6th in GT2 in 2008 (Bergmeister, van Overbeek), 4th in GT2 in 2006 (van Overbeek/ Long) and 3rd in GT2 in 2005 (with van Overbeek/Pechnik).
