Team Falken heads North for Mosport showdown
Mosport is the only Canadian stop for the ALMS series and is among the fastest tracks visited. Team Falken will again set out to qualify and finish well in the GT class.
"When Falken Tire decided to enter ALMS racing and run all season long, we chose the class that has been the most competitive," stated Rod Everett, Falken Team Manager. "We wanted to go up against the other factory teams as well as leading privateers. As the season comes to a close, all of us at Team Falken would prefer to be closer to the top of the standings, but I am very proud of what we've accomplished this season, including some of the hurdles we've overcome, thanks to the efforts of our drivers, Wolf Henzler and Bryan Sellers, our crew, our workhorse, this great Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, and all of the Falken employees and retailers. They've been right there throughout the year."
"I can only second what Rod has said," added Andrew Hoit, Falken Director of Marketing. "Becoming a part of the ALMS series was a huge step for Falken and it has paid multiple dividends in terms of exposure and allowing us to utilize these events and locations for hospitality and to meet with our retailers, customers and Falken enthusiasts. Our race program remains an integral part of Falken's overall marketing and sales campaigns."
At Mosport, the Porsche will compete on specially prepared Falken AZENIS RT Slicks and race on the classic circuit in the two-hour, 45-minute event on Sunday, August 29. Qualifying is set for Saturday, August 28.
