Falken Motorsports is poised to make a triumphant return to the Nürburgring 24 Hours competition and the Nordschleife circuit in 2023 with a pair of sleek and powerful Porsche 911 GT3 R (992) vehicles. The upcoming season promises to be a high-stakes and thrilling experience for racing enthusiasts.

Falken Motorsports has been a fierce competitor on the Nordschleife since 2018, racing with the Porsche 911 GT3 R (991.2) model. During its tenure with this vehicle, Falken has achieved multiple wins and podium finishes on the challenging circuit, including two major victories at the 2022 NLS endurance races of 6 hours and 12 hours.

In 2023, Falken Motorsports will celebrate its 13th year as a Porsche customer team. Its partnership with the German automaker dates back to 2011 and has been a resounding success. Alongside Porsche, Falken has secured top 10 finishes at the Nürburgring 24 Hours and placed fourth overall at the 2021 edition.

Falken Motorsports has yet to receive its new 911 GT3 R (992), however, it has already gained hands-on experience with the vehicle as the first Porsche customer team to compete with it at the NLS 8 event in October.

“We are thrilled to return to the Nordschleife as a Porsche customer team and compete with the cutting-edge 911 GT3 R (992),” said Stefanie Olbertz, the motorsport manager of Falken Tyres.

“The new model represents a significant leap in performance and design, and we are eager to take it to the track and battle for victory throughout the NLS season and at the Nürburgring 24 Hours.”
