Falken confirms drivers for first NLS race of 2021

Fielding a brace of Porsche 911 GT3 R for the 2021 season, the Falken Motorsports team will be represented at the opening round by Austrian pairing Martin Ragginger and Klaus Bachler in the #4. The #3 sister car will be driven by Porsche expert Sven Müller and experienced Nordschleife driver Lance David Arnold, who makes his on-track debut for Falken Motorsports.

“After the disruption last season, the Falken team is thoroughly looking forward to this year’s competition and making a positive mark with our Porsche pairing,” says Falken Motorsports’ Stefanie Olbertz. “In the Porsche 911 GT3 R we have a fast, responsive car and we will be looking to extract as much of this performance as possible in what is a fiercely competitive series. Our drivers are proven on the Nordschleife and at the wheel of the Porsche, and we are pleased to welcome Lance David Arnold and his experience to the squad at the season opener.”

The Schnabl Engineering-run team will contest in seven rounds of the 2021 NLS endurance series, with the season’s highlight being the ADAC 24h Race at the Nürburgring in June.
