Advent, Advent – FALKEN is full of day-by-day surprises for fans in December

A pair of Falken branded skis, a nitro snowboard in Falken look, three times two tickets for the 24h race at the Nürburgring 2019 are just three highlights of this year's Falken Advent calendar, with which the tyre brand will start on its Facebook pages on Saturday, 1 December 2018. Until 24 December, the international fans will have the chance to win big and small prizes. Falken is also raffling off 50 of the coveted fan calendars for the coming year. The participants do not only need a necessary portion of Fortune to get the prizes. A shaken measure of Falken knowledge is also in demand: The first thing to do is to correctly answer questions about Falken motorsport, tyres, cars and football. We start on Saturday with the question about the VLN race, in which the Falken team won a double victory this season.

"With a reach of 300,000, our Advent calendar last year far exceeded our expectations. On average, around 15,000 people were able to answer the questions correctly every day," says Markus Bögner, Managing Director and COO at Falken Tyre Europe GmbH, pleased with the great response. "With this campaign we would like to thank our fans especially for their loyalty and cooperation".

Artificial intelligence set to improve tyre durability and performance with "Tyre Leap AI Analysis"

Falken’s parent company, Sumitomo Rubber Industries Ltd (SRI), has developed new technology that utilises artificial intelligence (AI) to predict the properties of rubber and detects how structural changes, due to load and wear, will affect performance throughout a tyre’s lifecycle. The data collected through “Tyre Leap AI Analysis” will support engineers to create longer lasting tyres with more consistent performance over time and is a key element of SRI’s “SMART TYRE CONCEPT”.

Falken among Top-Ten at VLN final

Sven Müller’s and Patrick Pilet’s joy in their hard-won second place at the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring was to be short-lived, after a misdemeanour in a “Code 60 Zone” triggered a subsequent time penalty for Falken, relegating them from second to seventh place.
