    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    They won the second race in the VLN as well. They seem to be relatively competitive in non-ACO sanctioned races where the BoP is slightly different. kiss

    Great video.  What a soundtrack!  Smiley


    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    I love the Manthey cars. They always look so aggressive. I sincerely hope that their test went well. I would love to know the times that were set .

    The first race is at the AUTODROMO do ALGARVE on April, 26 - 29 2012

    Here is the BoP for all cars: http://gtopen.net/contenuti/files/portimao_2012/D01-12GT_open_ALL_BoP_ALGARVE_2012_120417.pdf

    ...and another win for Tandy and Holzer in the second race of the International GT Open on Sunday - as well as a hat trick for Porsche, with 1,2 and 3 on the podium (winning both classes in the process).  Also the second win for Lieb and Krumbach in the third race of the VLN series.  Manthey Racing is on a roll!  Smiley


    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    Yes, it was a great week end for Porsche Motorsport.

    Unfortunately  the car's performance in the ACO sanctioned races remains pitiful. Lets see if there is some improvement in this area.

    Hi everyone!

    Did someone say 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR?  We (Team Falken Tire) have been watching the fan forums for a while now and decided to jump on board. So while we're at it, here's a picture of our 911 GT3 RSR last week at a test at Mid Ohio. Just a couple more weeks until we head to Round 4 at Lime Rock Park of the American Le Mans Series!

    Team Falken Tire test at Mid-Ohio


    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    You did it!  Thanks! Smiley

    Please tell us more about the test (if you can)


    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    Sure! Since our team didn't participate in Le Mans, we have about 6 weeks dedicated to two car and tire tests and rebuilding the car. Our first test was at Road Atlanta and our second test was last week at Mid Ohio. Our Porsche Factory driver Wolf Henzler was racing at Le Mans, so Bryan Sellers and Martin Ragginger (Or Raggi) were behind the wheel at the track where we had our first of two 2011 wins.

    The team tested several new constructions and compounds of tires and Program Manager was very pleased with the results. Mid-Ohio is a great track for tire testing because it demands ultimate performance from the tires, including good handling and tire grip, and for more than just one lap. The team tested for two days before packing up and heading back to Indianapolis. The season schedule is going to be pretty packed from here on out (Lime Rock is just a few weeks away, July 6-7), so now it's all about a solid run until Petit  Le Mans in October.  (Mid-Ohio test press release here)

    Re: 2012 997 GT3 RSR

    First of all, a very warm welcome indeed. Very happy to hear from you via this thread. Guess there will be plenty of questions coming up in the near future. Until then, could you shed some light on the qualities of your drivers? Ragginger and Henzler have been well known in the Carrera and Supercup and, being Porsche works drivers, seem to make a very good job. How is it possible to receive works drivers from Porsche? I guess providing a great team makes that decision very easy...

    Welcome FalkenAlms...I am looking forward to seeing you at Lime Rock in less than three weeks.

    Love the Falken livery. My favorite current livery running on 911's or any other car/team. Welcome!

    I have a pretty basic 2005 997 S.  When I check your website for tires for that model (or any 911 for that matter) I get no results.  The 991 is not even a choice.  I can see the tire you mention and I can see it in the sizes that would fit, it simply does not come up as a Porsche when you search by make and model.

    I apologize for the website confusion, we are currently working on a new site which will have a better user functionality.  You are correct, we do make the correct fitment for your vehicle in the Azenis FK453, both load and speed ratings are compatible for your 2005 997 S.

    Yes, this was most unfortunate. They would most likely not have won, but a second place was almost guaranteed.
