Porsche and BMW return to the Nordschleife
Falken Motorsports has confirmed it will enter both its BMW and Porsche in a further four of the seven remaining VLN races in the 2018 season. After Falken’s BMW and Porsche both finished the Nürburgring 24 Hours Race in the top 20 last month, the drivers have now set their sights on achieving more success in the German endurance race series.
Falken’s proven driver roster will stay in place for the VLN races; the Porsche will be driven by Austrians Klaus Bachler and Martin Ragginger, alternating with Porsche works drivers Sven Müller and Dirk Werner, while Falken mainstays Peter Dumbreck and Alexandre Imperatori will share the BMW, with support from Stef Dusseldorp and Jens Klingmann.
The VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring regularly attracts average grids of 170 race cars, competing on one of the world’s most challenging racetracks – the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
