N24 NEWS: Podium For Falken 911 @ 2015 Nürburgring 24 Hours

Our pals at Falken Tyres got their best ever result at the 2015 Nürburgring 24 Hours this weekend – with an outstanding third place for the super-friendly Porsche team, in their iconic 997 GT3 R, driven by Scot Peter Dumbreck, Martin Ragginger, Alex Imperatori and Wolf Henzler.
The talented team guided the 911 from 19th on the grid to a podium slot, improving on its fourth place finish in 2014.
“We are ecstatic with this result,” says Falken Europe’s marketing and sales director Markus Bögner. “Thanks to the performance of team, drivers and tyres, we achieved our goal of a podium.”
“After fourth place last year, there was an expectation to improve on this,” says driver Peter Dumbreck. “The changing weather, with light rain in the night, made the track very slippery with a lot of cars going off but the Falken team led by Sven Schnabl made the right tyre choices and the Falken rubber performed superbly in these tricky conditions to make the difference. Everyone did a fantastic job, the car ran smoothly with just routine stops and we could get the podium we all hoped for.”
Well done folks! You deserve it.
