Falken Motorsport Movie at the Nurburgring

In addition to running a Porsche 911 GT3 RSR in the GT category of the ALMS series in the US, Falken Motorsport also has a European program that uses a Porsche 911 GT3 R.

Following its involvement in the 2013 Nürburgring 24 Hours race, the team has created a movie based on its experience at the Ring.

Rather than being just another video, this is a 28min movie, created from 25 terabytes of data, amassed during the build up to and completion of the 24hr race.

The movie gives an insight into the drivers’ lives when they’re not behind the wheel of the team’s Porsche 911, as well as detailing how Falken specifies its tires to meet the challenges of the legendary Nordschleife circuit.

Filmed over 13 weeks in Germany, Scotland and Austria, the movie stars the entire Falken Motorsports team, including interviews with drivers: Peter Dumbreck, Wolf Henzler, Martin Ragginger and Sebastian Asch who recall the highs and lows of the 24 hour race.

Falken Motorsports will continue its European endurance racing program at the Nürburgring in the German VLN series, which runs until the end of October.
