Porsche Carrera Cup Germany - Race Report Round 1 2020
BLACK FALCON and Carlos Rivas won the race in the Pro-Am class at the season opener of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. In the 45-minute sprint race on the legendary Circuit of the 24 Heures in Le Mans, the reigning Pro-Am champion delivered a perfect performance in the most difficult conditions. After a rain shower in the night, the 50-plus-strong mixed field of Carrera Cup Germany and Porsche Carrera Cup France completed the first kilometers in wet conditions this weekend during the formation lap. BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR driver Rivas had previously dominated the Pro-Am class on Friday in two free practice sessions and one qualifying session on a dry track and started from pole position in the class. After an additional formation lap to acclimatize to the track conditions, the race started with about 40 minutes remaining. Within a very short time, spectacular slipstream duels and close fights developed. Several safety car phases caused the field to close up again and again after a few laps at race speed. Rivas focused on his race and brought his 485 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, which is wrapped in an "art car" design this season, to the finish line as an outstanding overall 26 and as winner in the Pro-Am-Class of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany.
