Team FALKEN Motorsports' BMW M6 GT3 Finishes 8th Overall in the 45th ADAC Zurich 24h-Race Nrburgring

 

May 29, 2017

 

Sumitomo Rubber Industries, Ltd. is pleased to announce that Team FALKEN Motorsports' BMW M6 GT3, outfitted with high-performance FALEN tires, finished 8th overall in the 45th ADAC Zurich 24h-Race Nrburgring (commonly known as the 24h-Race Nrburgring), one of the largest touring car races in the world. This year's 24h-Race Nrburgring was held from Thursday, May 25 to Sunday, May 28 in Nrburg, Germany.

This year's race got off to a good start beneath clear and sunny skies. However, conditions changed dramatically over the course of the race, from the drastic change in road temperature between daytime and nighttime to the sudden downpour that came just as the race was entering its final stretch. Through it all, our FALKEN tires fully demonstrated their high overall performance, especially in terms of durability and dry/wet grip. As a result, Team FALKEN Motorsports' BMW M6 GT3 was able to place 8th in this year's 24h-Race Nrburgring, a race that is generally considered to be difficult to complete, much less win. Unfortunately, Team FALKEN Motorsports' Porsche 911 GT3R was forced to retire from the race due to an accident after it came into contact with another vehicle.

Taking place at the world-famous Nrburgring, which is also used as an R&D test track for automobile and tire makers, this 24-hour endurance race is considered by many to be the world's toughest race. At 25km per lap, the race makes use of the Nrburgring's full course, combining the North Course (Old Course), which features an elevation difference of 300m between its highest and lowest points and around 170 corners (including blind corners), and the more modern Grand Prix Course, which was also used for F1 racing.
