Falken Tire Corporation, based in Fontana, CA will be racing a Porsche 911 RSR in the prestigious American Le Mans Series this year, in the GT2 class. The team will be focused on developing Azenis RT Slick tires specifically for the rear-engined Porsche 911 chassis through extensive testing, driver, suspension and engine development. Falken engineers will design dozens of new specification tires for the racing program, changing rubber compounds, construction, tread design (for rain tires) and tire sizing to optimize track performance. The goal is to produce the best race tires available in ALMS.

Rod Everett, race engineer and owner of Landmark Motorsports, will manage Team Falken Tire with his extensive experience in open wheel and Sports car endurance racing. He will work with crew chief Mike Fox, a veteran Porsche mechanic and a dedicated group of seasoned racing technicians.
