Team Falken Tire has announced its team line-up for the 2012 American Le Mans Series, with the aim of continuing the momentum generated last year.

The main ingredient will be the brand new 2012 Porsche GT3 RSR chassis that it’s taken delivery of. The car was sent to Derrick Walker’s race shop in Indianapolis to be prepared for its season debut at the 12 Hours of Sebring on March 17.

Drivers Wolf Henzler and Bryan Sellers return after the veteran duo secured two wins for Team Falken last year; at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and on the streets of Baltimore.

“The new chassis again makes us one of the few teams in the world to have one of these incredibly sophisticated racecars, and we fully intend to take advantage of what we learned last season,” stated Andrew Hoit from Falken.

The 2012 GT3 RSR features extensive modifications, including flared front- and rear wheel arches as well as new side intakes to improve airflow to the engine.

“The car performed extremely well during the Winter Test,” declared Sellers, who begins his fourth year as a Falken team driver. He will again partner with Porsche Works driver Henzler and Team Manager Walker, who starts his second year as head of the race program.

In addition, Falken will support its motorsport involvement with unique contests and strategies such as another sweepstakes for this year.

As you’d expect, Falken Azenis slick race tires will again be used on the Porsche, updated through research and development during the off-season.
