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.
2010 24H of Nürburgring - Falken Tyre Takes 3rd in Class
Nürburg, Germany -- With nearly 250 cars participating in the annual 24
Hours of Nürburgring (officially the ADAC 24h Rennen Nürburgring), Falken
Tire, an international force within the high performance tire category,
took third place in its class and finished 12th overall. The Nissan 350Z
(Z33; official designation: Version NISMO Type 380RS-Competition) was
entered by Falken Motorsports Japan, and was driven by the same quartet of
drivers who have represented Falken for the past four years -- veterans
Peter Dumbreck, Dirk Schoysma, Tetsuya Tanaka and Kazuki Hoshino.
The 24 Hours of Nürburgring is a touring car and GT endurance event on the
Nürburgring Nordschleife. With a lap length of more than 15.5 mi, it is a
grueling event, though it attracts multiple factory entries and over 700
drivers. Falken competes in motorsports events throughout the world,
running race versions of its street tires with factory and privateer
entries to great success.
The team of Falken drivers produced a strong performance, finishing further
up the leader board than the 2009 race, while competing against an
increased number of manufacturer entries, including a Porsche 911 GT3
Hybrid, which outlasted many entries on fuel runs.
While cold weather plagued the teams throughout the event, Falken
Motorsports' spirited Nissan, running on Falken Azenis, withstood the
elements and survived without serious mechanical gremlins, which plagued a
number of other teams.

Part 1 - Drift Hungarian Open & King of Europe, 22nd & 23rd August 2009. Máriapócs, Hungary
The RabócsiRing is Hungary's most modern and also most visited racetrack.
The track is unique. Technical, full throttle and so close to the crowds as
nowhere else to drift! The longitude is 910 meters, width between 10 and16
meters. On the race, 5 corners will be under valuation, the 4th and 5th is
a left turn with three angles, and the surface has an angle too, like oval

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.
