Porsche Carrera Cup Germany- Preview 2021
BLACK FALCON will be competing in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland for the fifth year in a row in 2021. The team from Meuspath is planning to field three brand new Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars. Two of the coveted cockpits have already been allocated: Carlos Rivas and Loek Hartog will contest the season for BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR. The 18-year-old Dutchman Hartog is the reigning champion of the Porsche Carrera Cup BeNeLux and drew attention to himself last year with consistently strong performances. The joint goals for the 2021 season are the championship title in the rookie classification and as many visits to the overall podium as possible. With Carlos Rivas, BLACK FALCON is once again setting sight on the championship title in the ProAm classification. The 44-year-old from Luxembourg has been a BLACK FALCON regular in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland since 2017. Together, Rivas and BLACK FALCON have already scored 28 race wins in the ProAm standings. After two ProAm championship titles in 2019 and 2020, the aim is now to achieve a title hat trick with the new car. By the start of the season in April, the remaining third cockpit, which is currently available, is also supposed to be filled by a promising driver.
