Sensational success for the Falken team. With a surprising performance, on Saturday afternoon the Falken Motorsports team started in the pole position of the 59th ADAC Westfalenfahrt, the opening of the VLN racing season. With all types of weather conditions and extremely fast lap times – the Falken team had the fastest lap of the VLN race with an average speed of 174.157 km/h – the Slicks, Intermediates and rain tires were able to stand up to extreme conditions. Then there were technical problems only a few laps into the race: Jostling forced the Falken Porsche into the box in lap 4, and again two laps later with drive shaft problems. The drive shaft had to be completely replaced, putting the team in 139th place in the final standings. Continue reading ‘Falken Motorsports hits bad luck at the 59th ADAC Westfalenfahrt’

Preview: VLN 6h ADAC Ruhr-Pokal-Rennen

The entry list for the second highlight of the VLN endurance racing championship at the Nurburgring, the race in the ‘Green Hell’, is fantastic. The organizing MSC Ruhrblitz Bochum has received more than 190 entries for the 6h ADAC Ruhr-Pokal-Rennen ‘um die Pokal der Opel-Werke Bochum’. This demonstrates once more the high level of the endurance racing championship and its status as the most popular club sporting series in Europe. What, however, would be a full grid without an appropriate quality? This is what the VLN fans do not need to worry about. More than three dozens of top cars in the leading group and a great number of ambitious privateers in the wide middle field of the series will provide genuine and living motor sport. The race over the distance of six hours will be started on 27th of August at 12 o’clock exactly. The positions on the grid will be decided during the time practice between 08:30 and 10:00hrs. Entrance is free all around the Nordschleife. Tickets giving access to the paddocks and to the open grandstands at the Grand Prix Circuit are available at the cash boxes for a family-friendly price of 12 Euros. A 30 minutes summary of the race will be shown in channel Sport 1 on 2nd September at 16:00hrs. Continue reading ‘Preview: VLN 6h ADAC Ruhr-Pokal-Rennen’

VLN: Historic win for Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid

Porsche 911 GT3 R Hybrid, Porsche Team Manthey

Refuel less, drive longer: That’s the recipe for success of the further developed 911 GT3 R Hybrid: At the wheel of the Version 2.0 race car, Porsche works drivers Richard Lietz (Austria), Marco Holzer (Germany) and Patrick Long (USA) clinched the first victory for the innovative race car from Weissach at round four of the Nürburgring Long Distance Championship. While almost all other direct opponents had to pit three times to refuel, the Hybrid-911 made only two stops and with this yielded the first victory for a Hybrid-Porsche. Well known for its efficiency, Manthey Racing’s Porsche 911 GT3 RSR with Porsche factory drivers Marc Lieb (Germany), Romain Dumas (France) as well as Manthey pilot Lucas Luhr (Switzerland) also managed with two pit stops and made Porsche’s double victory perfect.
