Another Top 5 finish for Falken

Falken again delivered a great performance, scooping up fourth place for the BMW M6 GT3 and sixth place for the Porsche 911 GT3 at the seventh round of the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring.

Similarly to the last race three weeks ago, the “Green Hell” also proved particularly challenging at the seventh round of the VLN 2019. Ever-changing weather conditions necessitated an enormous amount of skill and experience when it came to tyre changes, demanding the drivers’ every last efforts.

These challenges were mastered magnificently by Jörg Bergmeister (D) and Martin Ragginger (A) during qualifying, earning themselves sixth starting position in the #4 Porsche 911 GT3 R, while Peter Dumbreck (GB) and Stef Dusseldorp (NL) started close in eighth place in the #3 BMW M6 GT3.

At the very start of the customarily four-hour race, another vehicle sent Martin Ragginger into a spin, causing him to fall far behind. As the race progressed, however, the Bergmeister / Ragginger duo fought their way back through the field, clenching fastest lap times, and securing sixth place and the distinction of best Porsche at the end of the race.

Dumbreck and Dusseldorp remained in the front group over the entire race, even taking the lead from time to time. In the end, their resourcefully executed strategy earned them fourth place, thereby awarding them yet another Top 5 finish.

The next race of the season – which will simultaneously be this year’s last for Falken – will be the eight round of the VLN Endurance Championship at the Nürburgring on 12 October 2019

Puesto que la carrera ADAC TOTAL 24h en el Nürburgring se ha aplazado a septiembre, la entusiasta comunidad de fans de Falken ha pensado en diferentes retos para que los pilotos de Falken los resuelvan en casa ante una cámara en lugar de enfrentarse al «infierno verde». Además de los pilotos de carreras de Falken Peter Dumbreck, Klaus Bachler y Martin Ragginger, también se enfrentarán a esta serie de retos de la 24in24 (que van desde dibujar el Nordschleife con los ojos vendados hasta bailar e incluso enfrentarse a un reto de limpieza del hogar) los pilotos de Porsche Dirk Werner y Sven Müller, así como los «drifters» profesionales James Deane, Rohan van Riel y Mark Vissers. Estos vídeos se mostrarán durante la cita original del evento, entre el 23 y el 24 de mayo de 2020.
