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.
Timo Frings, Head of Motorsport BLACK FALCON:
"After an extremely successful season, we have set ourselves ambitious goals for this year as well. With Loek, we want to finish as many races as possible on the overall podium, even though the competition at the front is stronger than ever before. Having already clinched a second place in his rookie season, we have also set ourselves the goal of celebrating the first Carrera Cup overall victory of his career this year. With Carlos, we are certainly the undisputed favourites for the ProAm title after three championships in a row, which we would like to bring to Meuspath for the fourth time. This year, however, Carlos will have competition from our own ranks in the form of Sören. Sören has left nothing to chance for his comeback and has trained a lot in the last few months. We are very excited about the new season and are now looking forward to the start of the season at the beginning of May."
The Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland races will be broadcast live and free of charge on YouTube as well as on German television (RTL Nitro). Specific broadcast details will follow in the run-up to the race weekends on BLACK FALCON's social media channels.
