Falken Motorsports aims for fourth win of the season at the third round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series

Just three weeks after the 24-hour race at the Nürburgring, Falken Motorsports is returning to the legendary Nordschleife: the two teal-and-blue Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) cars from the Japanese tire manufacturer will be back in action at the third round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS), the 69th ADAC Westfalenfahrt on 22nd June. They will once again race through the "Green Hell" at the third round of the NLS on June 22nd and try to build on the strong successes from the start of the season: Falken Motorsports snatched an overall victory and a podium result in the first two NLS races of the year.

In addition, there were the two overall victories in the ADAC 24h Qualifiers, the legendary dress rehearsal for the 24h race at the Nürburgring, in which Falken Motorsports secured sixth and tenth place overall three weeks ago. At the third round of the Nürburgring endurance series, the Japanese tire brand will once again field two strong driver pairings: The #3 Porsche will be driven by Julien Andlauer and Sven Müller, while Tim Heinemann and Martin Ragginger will alternate at the wheel of the #4 Falken Porsche.

The #4 Falken Porsche also leads the 2024 NLS Speed Trophy after the fourth of eight races in this year's Nürburgring Endurance Series season. Heinemann and Ragginger are aiming to defend this top position. Both drivers have already been victorious this year: Heinemann won the first race of the ADAC 24h Qualifiers together with Sven Müller, while Ragginger triumphed the next day together with Nico Menzel. Now the two professional drivers want to prove that they can also be successful together.

However, Andlauer and Müller will not make it easy for their team-mates - because the second Falken duo also have their sights firmly set on overall victory in the third round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series.

The starting signal for the four-hour race on the Nordschleife will be given at 12 noon on Saturday. The starting positions will already be determined in the morning in the 90-minute qualifying session starting at 8:30 am.
