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.
