Michelin Le Mans Cup - Preview Season 2021
BLACK FALCON is expanding its extensive customer sports programme for the 2021 racing season with a new flagship project and is entering the Michelin Le Mans Cup with LMP 3 prototypes from the French sports car manufacturer Ligier. After ten successful years in GT3 racing, the team from Meuspath is thus entering the prestigious stage of international sports car races, which are organised by the French Le Mans organiser Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO), for the first time. Throughout the debut season, Maik Rosenberg and Donar Munding will take turns at the wheel of the first Ligier JS P320 entered by BLACK FALCON. From the second half of the year onwards, two further JS-P320s will be running both in guest starts in the Le Mans Cup and as part of an extensive test programme.
BLACK FALCON has been able to acquire professional racing driver and TV presenter Lance David Arnold as project manager for the LMP programme. The 34-year-old has already gained experience as a team manager in his own team and is now also available to BLACK FALCON as a brand ambassador and driver coach.
Nürburgring Endurance Series - Race 1
The season opener of the Nürburgring Endurance Series did not go ahead as planned. Only a few minutes after the qualifying session had started it was interrupted by a red flag due to snowfall. Unfortunately, a resumption was not possible.
This means that the second round becomes the NLS season opener on the third weekend in April: The 45th DMV 4-Hour Race is scheduled for April 17th.

Porsche Carrera Cup Germany- Preview 2021
BLACK FALCON will be competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland for the fifth year in a row in 2021. The team from Meuspath is planning to field three brand new Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars. Two of the coveted cockpits have already been allocated: Carlos Rivas and Loek Hartog will contest the season for BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR. The 18-year-old Dutchman Hartog is the reigning champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup BeNeLux and drew attention to himself last year with consistently strong performances. The joint goals for the 2021 season are the championship title in the rookie classification and as many visits to the overall podium as possible. With Carlos Rivas, BLACK FALCON is once again setting sight on the championship title in the ProAm classification. The 44-year-old from Luxembourg has been a BLACK FALCON regular in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland since 2017. Together, Rivas and BLACK FALCON have already scored 28 race wins in the ProAm standings. After two ProAm championship titles in 2019 and 2020, the aim is now to achieve a title hat trick with the new car. By the start of the season in April, the remaining third cockpit, which is currently available, is also supposed to be filled by a promising driver.
