Falken Tire tests their 2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR at the 2011 American Le Mans Series Winter Test in Sebring, FL at the historic Sebring Raceway. In a few short weeks this course will host the season opener of the 2011 American Le Mans Series with a grueling 12 hour endurance race.
Team Falken Tire, along with team manager Derrick Walker and drivers Bryan Sellers and Wolf Henzler hope to improve on their performance from last year with new slick compounds and a newly managed team.
Derrick Walker's background includes open-wheel racing such as Formula One and Indy Car.
Falken's First 2011 ALMS Porsche Win
Team Falken Tire survived the storm that hit Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course 30
minutes before the finish and took top honors in GT class for the first
time in the performance tire manufacturer's three-year ALMS career.
Derrick Walker, Falken's ALMS Team Manager, made the comment after
previously expressing confidence in Falken's capability at Mid-Ohio, a
track he knows very well from years of competing as a manager and owner of
Credit also went to Falken's two team drivers, Porsche works driver Wolf
Henzler, and his partner, Bryan Sellers, who persevered through the race on
a track notoriously tough on tires. Sellers qualified 9th and expressed
disappointment with the position, considering Falken has finished in fifth
place the last two races. However, Sellers started the race and started
moving forward until he was hit from behind by the #04 Ford GT, which
dropped the Porsche to 12th. The veteran driver fought hard and turned the
car over to his teammate in 10th. Henzler entered the race and gradually
moved to 7th place in GT, remaining there for a good portion of the race.
Falken takes on the 2011 Long Beach Grand Prix
Finishing just one place out of a podium spot in the hotly contested GT
Class, Team Falken's Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, piloted by Porsche Works and team
driver Wolf Henzler, and his partner, team driver Bryan Sellers, ran strong
all afternoon on the challenging streets of Long Beach, and ended up 4th
out of 14 GT entrants during the annual visit by the American LeMans Series
to the Long Beach Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious street races in
the world, now in its 37th year.
2011 Formula Drift Round 1 - JTP Dominates Long Beach
Team Falken started the 2011 Formula Drift season the way it finished last
year, with one of its factory drivers on top of the podium. Justin Pawlak,
in just his second year with the tire manufacturer, took his inaugural
first place at the Long Beach opening round, with Team Falken teammate
Daijiro ("Dai") Yoshihara in third. Before a capacity crowd, Pawlak
took the victory on board his 2011 Ford Mustang with a new engine built by
Ford Racing and Roush-Yates and ran on Falken's Azenis RT615K, as did all
other Falken team members. Pawlak qualified 11th, while Yoshihara was
second among the top 32, alerting the other competitors he was the driver
to beat on the streets of Long Beach. While Defending Formula D Champion
Vaughn Gittin, Jr., struggled in qualifying, he was an important part of
the weekend, meeting and greeting his fans as well as supporting the rest
of the Falken team in the main event. Among the Falken "inter-team
competition," Pawlak beat Darren McNamara in the top 16 round, and Justin
went on to best Dai in the Top 4, completing a "One More Time." Justin
beat Matt Powers in the final, while Dai defeated 2009 Formula D Champion
Chris Forsberg to earn third.
"Justin earned this win through timing and endurance," declared Jonathan
Bradford, Team Falken's Formula Drift manager. "He has grown rapidly over
the past 12 months, and it is fitting that he would take his first podium
as a Falken team member at one of our home tracks." Falken continues
to excel in activating its marketing efforts in association with Formula
Drift and the strong crowds of drift fans in Southern California. With a
new team of Falken Spokesmodels in the paddock next to the company's
multiple support trailers, Falken hosted 350 representatives and guests
from both Monster Energy Drink and Ford Racing in their hospitality region.
"This is an important victory for us because the race is in our backyard
and we had a lot of fans, customers and Falken Tire enthusiasts in the
stands and the paddock," said Nick Fousekis, Falken's Director of
Motorsports Marketing and Events. "We've proven all the work the team and
each individual driver have done during the off-season successfully moved
Falken up another level, and we'll keep climbing all season long. We also
appreciate the tremendous support from car builders Autosport Dynamics and
SPD." After the first round, Pawlak is at the top of the Championship
standings, Yoshihara third, while McNamara is in 10th. Final Falken
teammate Tyler McQuarrie finished in 11th. Ross Petty, a long-time
independent competitor running Falkens, placed 14th. Round two will
be held May 6-7, at Road Atlanta, Braselton, GA.
Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it
races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the
"Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time,
Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to
claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th
birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching
the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in
the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill
Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of
all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a
Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent
extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface
on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel
than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of
their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's
race car helped push the driver forward.

Soundcheck - Manthey Porsche 997GT3RSR
Beim Testtag in Spa Francorchamps war auch die Manthey Truppe aus Meuspath,
um mit Marco Holzer und Nick Tandy den Porsche 997GT3RSR für die

Akustisch und fahrerisch über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Die Jungs treten wohl
nicht an um Zweiter zu werden.
How to Build a 3.8L Porsche Track Monster
This is the full-length film about my Porsche 964 3.6L to 3.8L RS engine
conversion. It was filmed over 3 months and I couldn't be happier with the
final result. My car was built for ME...my specs, my goals, and my vision.
Speedsporttuning listened to everything I dreamt about as a kid and build
the car around my personality... and for that I will be forever grateful. I
hope you all enjoy the video as much as I did making it. -L

Porsche GT2 RS
On May 4, 2010, an RS variant was announced to German dealers in Leipzig.
The GT2 RS develops 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of
torque and weighs 70 kg (150 lb) less than the standard GT2, allowing for a
top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) and 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration of 3.4
seconds. The GT2 RS clocked a record-breaking time of 7 minutes and 18
seconds around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife track (claimed by Porsche),
one of the fastest times in modern production car history. However, this
was performed on the shorter Nurburgring course, which is 232 meters
shorter. Given an average speed of 100MPH (160km/h), this yields an
addition 5.7 seconds, with a more typical allowance of 7 seconds. This
would result in a range of 7:23-7:25, which is comparable to the 7:24
turned in by Horst von Saurma.
According to Porsche Motorsports manager Andreas Preuninger, the RS was
conceived around 2007 as a skunk-works effort. The 727 code number selected
for the project corresponds to one of the Nissan GT-R's lap times around
the Nurburgring's Nordschleife. When the dust settled, Porsche test driver
Timo Kluck had eclipsed that target by an impressive nine seconds,
though on a shorter track.
De Vijverberg Trofee
De Vijverberg Trofee, georganiseerd door Jan Albert de Boer, is al geruime
tijd een begrip en uiterst populair. Het evenement ontstond al weer bijna
15 jaar geleden uit de behoefte om met gelijkgestemden vrij te kunnen
rijden op een circuit, zonder al te veel regels maar ook zonder de
veiligheid uit het oog te verliezen.
