BLACK FALCON will be competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany for the sixth year in a row in 2022. After an almost perfect season in 2021, which culminated in winning the Rookie and ProAm championships, the team from Meuspath has great ambitions for this year as well. In the fight for the podium places in the overall standings, BLACK FALCON will send reigning rookie champion Loek Hartog into contention. The 19-year-old Dutchman will once again receive special support as part of the "Talent Pool" programme of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany. Hartog will compete in the number 4 Porsche 992 GT3 Cup and, in addition to podium finishes, has his sights set on his first overall victory. In the number 5 car, Sören Spreng returns to the Porsche Carrera Cup after a break of several years. The 35-year-old from Hemer prepared intensively for his comeback in Germany's fastest one-make cup last year and already competed as a guest entrant in the season finale at the Hockenheimring. In preparation for the season, he already participated in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East this winter. Spreng competes in the ProAm classification for drivers without a professional background in motorsport and faces Carlos Rivas, who drives the third BLACK FALCON car with the starting number 6. Rivas crowned himself ProAm champion for the third time in a row last season with eleven race wins. Since 2017, the 45-year-old Luxembourger has celebrated 39 class wins together with BLACK FALCON, making him the most successful ProAm driver in the history of the Porsche Carrera Cup Germany. This year, this statistic shall be extended with further victories and the fourth title.

BLACK FALCON achieved a strong team result at the season opener of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland and laid the foundation for a successful season with a top five result and two wins in the Pro-Am classification. On the same weekend, the team from Meuspath contested the ADAC 24h Nürburgring Qualifiers on the Nordschleife. At the dress rehearsal for the season highlight, the 50th ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring 2022 (May 26-29), the team secured two second places in the SP10 (GT4 cars) and CUP3 (Porsche Cayman GT4) classes in the second race on Sunday.
BLACK FALCON achieved strong results in the first double event of the year. At the third round of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS), the team celebrated class victory in the Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring (PETN) in the CUP2 class (Porsche 992 GT3 Cup class), a double victory in the AM classification of the CUP2 class, as well as second place in the SP10 class (GT4 cars).

After a successful premiere last year, the BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR will again compete in all races of the ADAC GT4 Germany in the 2022 season. For the new season, the team from Meuspath is switching to a Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport, the most spectacular version of the proven Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport to date. The brand-new "RS" model relies on the 4-litre engine from the Porsche 992 GT3 Cup as well as a 7-speed gearbox and is thus significantly more powerful than its predecessor. The GT4 RS will be driven by BLACK FALCON GT4 Germany regulars Axel Sartingen and Daniel Schwerfeld. The experienced duo will again compete in the "Trophy classification", a class for drivers who have reached the age of 35 and have been classified by the FIA in the "Bronze" category. Sartingen and Schwerfeld are entering the new season with great ambitions after a successful debut season. After a number of podium finishes and fourth place in the championship last year, they are aiming for their first class victory this season as well as a place in the top three of the Trophy standings.
BLACK FALCON celebrated a brilliant debut in the new Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring (PETN) at the season opener of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) with three Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars and achieved second place in the PRO classification as well as a double victory in the PRO-AM classification in the two-division CUP2 class (Porsche 992 GT3 Cup one-make cup). In addition, the team from Meuspath celebrated class victory in the SP10 class (GT4 vehicles) at the Nordschleife premiere of the Porsche Cayman GT4 RS Clubsport.
