Falken Motorsports: The Movie
Falken Motorsport has released a 28 minute movie showcasing its 2013 Nürburgring 24 Hours experiences. Filmed across three countries and on location at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the film contains driver interviews and intense racing action culled from 25 terabytes of data. The film is now available to view online via sites such as YouTube and Facebook, as well as in the subscriber area on Tyrepress.com below.
The tyre manufacturer created the movie to offer a rare insight into the drivers’ lives when they are not behind the wheel of the team’s Porsche 911 GT3 R, as well as detailing how Falken specifies its tyres to meet the challenges of the Nordschleife circuit.
“Our fans are passionate and very important to us,” says Dennis Wilstermann, who is part of the creative team at Falken. “We decided to create the movie to give the fans and racing enthusiasts a behind-the-scenes glimpse of our motorsport team in action.”
Filmed over 13 weeks in Germany, Scotland and Austria, the movie stars the entire Falken Motorsports team, featuring exclusive interviews with drivers Peter Dumbreck, Wolf Henzler, Martin Ragginger and Sebastian Asch. The Porsche 911 GT3 R also features as the film recalls the highs and lows of the 24 hour race.
“We developed the idea of a Falken movie in July 2012,” adds Wilstermann. “Nearly a year on, having travelled 12,000 kilometres across three countries, we have a finished film. We are looking forward to the reaction from Falken fans and motorsport enthusiasts.”
Falken Motorsports will continue its endurance racing at the Nürburgring in the VLN series, running until the end of October. Fans can expect more exiting racing and dynamic performance from the Falken Motorsports team.
