We are pleased to announce that Team FALKEN Motorsports’ BMW M6 GT3, outfitted with high-performance FALEN tires, finished 8th overall in the 45th ADAC Zurich 24h-Race Nürburgring (commonly known as the 24h-Race Nürburgring), one of the largest touring car races in the world. This year’s 24h-Race Nürburgring was held from Thursday, May 25 to Sunday, May 28 in Nürburg, Germany.
This year’s race got off to a good start beneath clear and sunny skies. However, conditions changed dramatically over the course of the race, from the drastic change in road temperature between daytime and nighttime to the sudden downpour that came just as the race was entering its final stretch. Through it all, our FALKEN tires fully demonstrated their high overall performance, especially in terms of durability and dry/wet grip. As a result, Team FALKEN Motorsports’ BMW M6 GT3 was able to place 8th in this year’s 24h-Race Nürburgring, a race that is generally considered to be difficult to complete, much less win. Unfortunately, Team FALKEN Motorsports’ Porsche 911 GT3R was forced to retire from the race due to an accident after it came into contact with another vehicle.
