The tire brand FALKEN is once again a partner of the ADAC Zurich 24h race on the NÃ¼rburgring and will be one of the main sponsors both on and off the racetrack. Once again this year, up to 200.000 fans will be making a pilgrimage to the Eifel to attend the largest sports event in Germany. You will see the new Falken-Porsche 911 GT3 R and a proven driver lineup at the wheel: Peter Dumbreck (Great Britain), Wolf Henzler (NÃ¼rtingen), Alexandre Imperatori (Switzerland) and Martin Ragginger (Austria) are fighting again podium.
Last year it was so far: at the 16. The FALKEN Motorsports team was able to finish the famous 24h race on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife in third place on the podium. â € œI am personally very pleased that we are continuing our partnership with Porsche and hope that we will be able to build on the many successes we have achieved with the predecessor model at Nürburgring, â € says Stephan Cimbal, Head of Marketing Falken Tire Europe GmbH.
After five successful years with the model 997 FALKEN changed at the beginning of the season on the successor on the basis of the type 991. Compared to the predecessor model, the 500 PS strong 911 GT3 R has been consistently further developed and significantly improved in the areas of engine, chassis, aerodynamics and weight. The tires were also developed specifically for the car and had to undergo numerous tests on the test track in Portimao. With the test results obtained there, the engineers in Japan developed a new generation of high-end motor sport tires especially for the Porsche, which are now being used at the Nürburgring.
Also next to the racetrack FALKEN is strongly represented. A stand in the ring Boulevard and the spectacular drift show in the historic paddock will thrill the fans again this year. Also back in the field are the twenty FALKEN grid girls, who among other things present the starting boards next to the top favorites of the race. In cooperation with the drone manufacturer DJI, FALKEN will generate completely new recordings, which will be disseminated via FALKEN's own social media channels. The FALKEN Porsche is one of the eleven vehicles in the starting field that is equipped with a transmission system for the Vodafone livestream. An extensive accompaniment on the FALKEN channels on Facebook, Snapshat, Instagram, Youtube and the FALKEN website falkentyre.com is also part of the activities
