Falken Motorsports adds Porsche 911 GT3 R to endurance line-up

Tire manufacturer Falken has confirmed its 2020 motorsport plans, announcing it will run a pair of the latest specification GT3 Porsche 911 GT3 R’s in the Nürburgring Endurance Series and the Nürburgring 24h race. Falken Motorsports race team, run by Schnabl Engineering for the 10th consecutive year, has ordered a new 991.2 chassis to run alongside its 2019 Porsche. Both cars will be identical in specification.

“Fielding two Porsche will allow us to run a more effective tire evaluation program, with a chance to try different set-ups across the cars, while removing one more variable at a track that throws up so many unpredictable elements,” explained Stefanie Olbertz, motorsport program head, Falken. “We’ll also benefit from cost efficiencies with regard to carrying spares and logistics, making this a very practical decision.”

The decision to opt for two identical cars follows three seasons of running a BMW M6 GT3 alongside a 911. While the BMW scored Falken’s first overall victory, engineers at the tire company believe that competing with identical cars will improve efficiency by focusing on improving specific car and tire performance.
