As usual, David Kolkmann (#5), Carlos Rivas (#6) and Tim Zimmermann (#50) will compete for BLACK FALCON in the fifth and sixth rounds of the season. Out of the grid is Sören Spreng, who cancelled his participation in the Carrera Cup for personal reasons. This weekend Philipp Sager will take over the cockpit duties from him in the 485 hp Porsche 911 GT3 Cup with starting number 4. The Austrian competes in the Porsche Supercup this season and intends to use the weekend to prepare for the Supercup race at the Red Bull Ring in three weeks' time.
Carlos Rivas travels to Styria as the Gentlemen's Championship Leader after two victories in the B classification in the third and fourth races of the season at Most in the Czech Republic. The Luxembourger wants to extend his lead with two good results. For Tim Zimmermann and David Kolkmann, the Red Bull Ring race is all about catching up with the top of the standings. After two weekends that didn't go perfectly, they both want to attack fully on the roller coaster track.
