Falken Motorsports have created a 28 minute film following the exploits of the team at this year’s Nürburgring 24 Hours. We were invited to follow the fortunes of their all new Porsche 911 GT3 R, which Phil Royle captured in the latest issue of ROAD Magazine (#35).
He was blown-away by the experience and it seems the team were too.
Filmed over 13 weeks in Germany, Scotland and Austria, the film stars the entire Falken Motorsports team, featuring exclusive interviews with drivers: Peter Dumbreck, Wolf Henzler, Martin Ragginger and Sebastian Asch, while it also recalls the highs and lows of the 24 hour race.

The tyre maker made the film to offer a rare insight into the drivers’ lives when not behind the wheel of the team’s Porsche 911 GT3 R, it also provides a fascinating insight into choosing a tyre for the unique challenge of the Nordschleife circuit.
“Our fans are passionate and very important to us,” says Dennis Wilstermann of Falken “we developed the idea of a Falken movie in July 2012, and nearly a year on, having travelled 12,000 kilometres across three countries, we have finally finished it.”
The team continues endurance racing in the German VLN series, which races exclusively at the Nürburgring, with the final race on the weekend of 26th October.
