Inside Falken's Nürburgring 24by Web Editor on 30th August 2017
Scorching heat, a last minute downpour, drama throughout
It’s exactly three months since Falken entered its BMW M6 and Porsche 911 in the iconic Nürburgring 24 Hours. Having started 37th and competing at the enduro for the first time in the company’s iconic blue and teal colours, the Japanese tyre manufacturer’s new BMW M6 GT3 driven by Peter Dumbreck, Alexandre Imperatori, Stef Dusseldorp and Marco Seefried eventually came home in a strong eighth position in the arduous event that witnessed plenty of drama. That included a collision, just four hours in on Saturday evening, that led to the retirement of the team’s Porsche 911 GT3.
Using three film crews, helicopter and drone, Falken’s team has created a film that catalogues the highs and lows of this race that sees over 140 cars compete on the legendary Nordschleife track.
