Confidential Falken Tires

A great relationship has its perks. Our boys at Falken Tires were happy to loan our customer Josh Simpson a set of their developmental track specific race tires for Rennsport 2015 Laguna Seca Raceway. Simpson was pleased with his results and noted “Unbelievable grip”. He picked up 3.5 seconds on his time vs. the standard customer tires available.  If given the choice Simpson would buy the track specific tires vs. standard tires. We believe in giving our customers options that allow them an optimal advantage over their opponents. We support Falken tires as well as all other tire companies. It’s not just about the name, it’s about the performance and our boys at Falken performed the best.

Thank you, Falken Tires!

 

#17 Falken Motorsports

Falken 2011 2

From 2010-2011 Nico played a pivotal role as Crew Chief on the #17 Falken Tire Porsche 911 RSR for the American Le Mans Series season. Drivers Wolf Henzler and Brian Sellers utilized their factory sponsor and enjoyed tearing up the track with a plenty of Falken tires. *Over the years Henzler and Sellers played an important role into the development of Falkens high-performance tires.

During the 2011 ALMS season, Nico’s insight into the Porsche 911 RSR performance and the hardworking crew, lead the team to make some crucial and informed decisions which would result in two 1st place finishes at Mid-Ohio and Baltimore Grand Prix.  These two wins would be the first of many podium opportunities for Falken over the years.

After gaining attention to the team by their wins at Mid-Ohio and Baltimore, Speedhunters captured all the behind the scenes action of the ALMS Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway race in Monterey, California Sept 30, 2011. Due to contact with a GT-C car during the race the #17 car sustained damage to the frame and water pump and was forced to retire at the four-hour mark.

To this day, Nico continues a great working relationship with Falken Tire and currently maintains the 2012 #17 Falken Porsche 911 RSR for owner Jim Edwards. Edwards is a long-time Porsche fan and collector. For one last time, Henzler had an opportunity to drive Mr. Edwards #17 Falken car in the 2015 Rennsport Reunion race at Laguna Seca Mazda Raceway in Monterey, California.

*In 2015 Falken retired their Porsche program and is no longer running in the Tudor/IMSA series.
