24h-Race Nürburgring - Race Report
After the shortest race in the history of the 24h Nürburgring, the results of the three BLACK FALCON cars turned out to be highly varied: In the Mercedes-AMG GT4 (#36) of the BLACK FALCON Team TEXTAR, Mustafa Mehmet Kaya, Gabriele Piana, Mike Stursberg and Ersin Yücesan won the SP8T class after a thrilling battle. In the strong CUP3 class, the TEXTAR Porsche Cayman GT4 (#308) crossed the finish line in sixth place. The Porsche 911 GT3 Cup MR SP PRO (#350) of the BLACK FALCON Team IDENTICA did not finish the race after an accident.
The 49th edition of the endurance classic started on Saturday afternoon in difficult track conditions. After a tough choice of tyres due to drizzle in the early stages, heavy rain from the 3rd lap onwards caused extreme aquaplaning and chaotic conditions on the track. After six hours, the race had to be interrupted at 9.30 pm due to dense fog. Only after more than 14 hours the race was re-started on Sunday morning, which was followed by a sprint race over roughly four hours.
