Porsche Carrera Cup Germany - Rounds 1 & 2 in Spa
BLACK FALCON is eagerly awaiting the season opener of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. Rounds 1 and 2 will be held in Spa-Francorchamps as support races of the Sports Car World Championship (WEC). After numerous days of testing, the team from Meuspath now looks forward to its first race with the new Porsche 911 GT3 Cup (Type 992). At the wheel of the number 4 car, Loek Hartog will make his racing debut for the BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR. The 18-year-old Dutchman is on the hunt for points in the overall and rookie classifications this year. The sister car that features a unique comic design - driven by 44-year-old Luxembourger Carlos Rivas - will be competing in the ProAm classification. After two ProAm championship titles with BLACK FALCON in 2019 and 2020, the goal is now to follow up with the title hat trick with the new car.
