Le Mans 24 Hours winners Timo Bernhard and Romain Dumas have been drafted into the CytoSport Porsche line-up for the next two rounds of the American Le Mans Series.Bernhard will pair up with team regular Klaus Graf in the CytoSport Porsche RS Spyder at Road America this weekend, and fellow Porsche factory driver Dumas will share the car at Mosport Park on 29 August.They are replacing team owner Greg Pickett, who has been sidelined by back injuries he sustained in a crash during testing at Mid-Ohio earlier this month."We wanted to make the best out of this situation," said Graf, "and getting Timo and Romain gives us a real chance in the next two races."Graf and Pickett gave CytoSport its first victory in the ALMS at Lime Rock in July. The German driver is currently 23 points behind leaders David Brabham and Simon Pagenaud of Highcroft in the ALMS LMP championship.
