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 IndyCar teams. 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 Tire 2009 GT2 Porsche 911 RSR Testing
http://www.falkentire.com As Falken Tires enters its second year of sports car competition, the tire manufacturer returns to the important and highly regarded American LeMans Series (ALMS) competition where it will once again compete in the series GT2 class. What's different for the ALMS competition 2009 season is this year, Falken is running its own team, based at its corporate headquarters in Fontana, CA. The car is the powerful Porsche 911 RSR. The 3.8-liter boxer engine of the GT3 RSR remains unchanged with the exception of slight improvements in specified areas. The motor delivers 465 hp at 8,000 rpm. Weight of the race car is 2,700 pounds. To ensure its competitiveness, Falken has developed a special Azenis RT Slick tire for this car, which the company will manufacture in Japan. A dedicated engineering and development crew will attend each ALMS competition event to observe and provide appropriate resources. Falken has developed much of its technology from its motorsports efforts throughout the world, including competition in Super Taikyu, at the 24 hours of the legendary Nurburgring - a punishing race - and the highly regarded Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.

Falken Tire: 2013 Forza Motorsports // Livery Contest
Falken Tire teams up with Turn 10 studios to form a Forza Motorpsorts 4 Livery Contest for the community on Xbox 360. Winning livery was fabricated on real Falken Tire's Porsche GT3 RSR and races to win the race of Petit Le Mans Road Atlanta. Subaru BRZ Livery contest coming soon to Forza Motorsprots 5 on Xbox One. "Turn 10 Studios has been making Forza Motorsport for almost 10 years now and It really represents the combination of car lovers and gamers. Getting people interested in car culture and gaming culture. we are exactly the people that we're making our game for. We are a collection of car fanatics, we love tuning and wrenching on our own cars. We also have a lot of enthusiasts here at Falken Tire, which makes it a really easy fit for us to collaborate and do this partnership together. I think its great for Forza to have the Falken Porsche in game. What it brings to our players is the ability to take a real world race-car that they see every weekend racing around the United States and bring it into the game and be able to actually experience what it's like to take that full bred race-car onto the same tracks they see at race every weekend. And try to beat the lap times, win the race and compete against their friends. It's an important part of actually bringing fantasy to life. The livery contest actually came about from a collaboration that Forza and the American Le Mans series did together during our 2013 season. Each month they would work with a different team to do a promotion of some sort and we really wanted to do something unique. For decades now we have ran a traditionally teal and blue Falken Motorsports livery on everything that we race. Falken Tire challenged our fans to paint their car. ultimately one of our fans liveries was chosen and painted onto their car to race at Petit Le Mans in Road Atlanta. Livery creation in Forza Motorsport isn't necessarily easy, it's meant to empower artists the tools meant to give them a way for them to express themselves. so the amazing works of art they create simply can't be created by everyone. The painters and tuners in Forza Motorsport are continually pushing the boundaries what can be be done in game. And thats why were excited to bring that community together with Falken Tire. Out of 200 submissions of different designs, we basically chose the top 6, and then we left it up to our Facebook fans to decide who the winning design was. turned out to be a designer from Belgium named Kevin Neuville. Talk about a unique opportunity you know, thiswas the first and probably the last time that you'll ever see a one off design on our Porsche program and for it to be the time we win Petit Le Mans is a pretty rare opportunity to say the least. As we approach the release of Forza Motorsport 5, Falken Tire has challenged our community again. This time to paint Dai Yoshihara's Subaru BRZ, the one that will compete in the 2014 season. Taking a step even further the Porsche livery that was a one event limited time contest. The BRZ livery is actually going stay on the vehicle for the duration of the 2014 Formula D season. Im anxious to see what creative ideas come out of that contest."
