ALMS 2009 – Falken Tire Porsche RSR

As promised, here are some pictures of the Falken Tire Porsche RSR in action at the Long Beach Grand Prix this past April.  The Porsche runs in the GT2 class of the American Le Mans…it had a great start in Long Beach with a chance of getting on podium but due to some mechanical issues, the car had to retire early.  The next race will be in Altanta for the Petit Le Mans, 10 hours of racing!!!!

Here are some photos from the Long Beach race.

ALMS 2008 – Falken / BSR Ford GT

with the 2008 american le mans season long gone, falken is preparring for the upcoming 2009 season.  as our team prepares for an exciting new season with our brand new porsche rsr gt2 class race car, i took the time to remember last year’s season with some photos from various alms events.

in 2008, falken teamed up with black swan racing and their ford gt gt2 class race car.  although we were only the tire sponsor, there was an agreement that the car would be in full falken tire motorsports livery with the traditional teal and blue scallop theme.  the car stood out from the rest of the cars in the field and attracted a lot of new attention.  for one, no one really knew who falken was and second, the ford gt was new to the american le mans series with only one other ford racing in the series.  below are some images of the car…it was a pretty bad ass car.

below is a shot i took in las vegas of our new porsche rsr car.  although this is not the same car we’ll be using for the 2009 season, it’s practically the same car so i thought i’d give you guys a sneak preview of what it looks like, if you haven’t seen it already.  i’ll have some new photos of the new car posted soon.
