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.
BLACK FALCON will compete in all rounds of the Nürburgring Endurance Series (NLS) in the 2022 season with at least four Porsche brand cars. Three Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars will be entered in the Porsche Endurance Trophy Nürburgring (CUP2 class), a newly created Porsche one-make cup consisting of two classes on the Nordschleife. In the SP10 class for vehicles according to SRO GT4 regulations, the team from Meuspath will bring a brand new Porsche Cayman GT4 RS onto the grid.
