The Sumitomo Rubber Group has competed in the Nürburgring 24h-Race, which is widely considered to be the world's toughest endurance race, since 1999. Continuing from last year's showing, FALKEN Motorsports will be competing for glory with two high-performance racecars: the Porsche 911 GT3R that placed ninth overall in last year's race and the BMW M6 GT3 that finished in fifteenth place last year. Meanwhile, by supporting the Nürburgring 24h-Race as an Official Sponsor, we hope to further promote our FALKEN brand while contributing to the further development of motorsports in general.

[Nürburgring 24h-Race]
Taking place at the Nürburgring, which is also famously used as an R&D test track for automobile and tire manufacturers, 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 Nürburgring's full course, combining the North Course (Old Course), which features an elevation difference of 300m between its highest and lowest points and about 170 corners (including blind corners), and the more modern Grand Prix Course, which was also previously used for F1 racing.
