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: 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."

Beim Testtag in Spa Francorchamps war auch die Manthey Truppe aus Meuspath, um mit Marco Holzer und Nick Tandy den Porsche 997GT3RSR für die International GT Open zu testen. Akustisch und fahrerisch über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Die Jungs treten wohl nicht an um Zweiter zu werden.

ALMS Sebring 12 Hour Highlights - #30 NGT Porsche + Helicopter!
The NGT Motorsport team entered it's first professional race at the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring, which is part of the American Le Mans Series championship. Their regular drivers Henrique Cisneros and Carlos Kauffmann were coming off the back of winning the Patron GT3 challenge in 2010. They enlisted Pro driver Sean Edwards to accompany them during the long distance races. They were consistently fastest throughout the winter test day and most of Sebring week, but two crashed at T17 were to push the team beyond their normal call of duty. They were unable to qualify, but the team pulled an all nighter and had the car ready for the morning warm up, where the car was quickest once again! The race got underway, with NGT climbing all the way to the lead by hour 1 and holding onto it for most of the next 6 hours. Only for a mistaken wave by and the subsequent penalty which lost them 3 laps, they would have been fighting for the victory. Nevertheless they fought all the way back to 3rd place and never gave up, which was an amazing feat in their first Pro race! They also set the fastest lap of the race on a 2.07.7. www.ngtmotorsport.com www.seanedwards.eu www.americanlemans.com
