VLN Endurance Championship
The VLN Endurance Championship Nürburgring is a popular sports car series and has been held at the Nürburgring Nordschleife since 1977. Drivers of various vehicles – from standard cars to thoroughbred racing cars – compete against each other in various classes. The races take four to six hours and are carried out on the Nordschleife in conjunction with the sprint course (short loop) of the Grand Prix circuit. On average, more than 175 vehicles take part in the races, which are usually driven by several drivers taking turns at the wheel.
ADAC 24h race and qualifying at the Nürburgring
The ADAC Zurich 24h race at the Nürburgring is one of the most traditional events in international motorsports. Teams and drivers come to the Nürburgring from around the world every year to fulfil their dream of participating in this event.
Since 2013, a 6h qualifying race is also held prior to the event to enable teams and drivers to get used to the changed track layout and the working conditions in the dark.
The 24h race at the Nürburgring is a must for any racing driver, a "once-in-a-lifetime" event, although most of them will not only compete once in a lifetime.
For Black Falcon this event is quite simply the highlight of each racing season, where numerous classes and categories could be won in the last 10 years. The overall victories with the SLS AMG GT3 and the AMG GT3 are the greatest successes in Black Falcon history to this day.
Porsche Carrera Cup
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.
ADAC GT4 Germany
The ADAC GT4 Germany is aimed at aspiring young talents and ambitious racing amateurs. Drivers who have been classified in the Silver or Bronze category by the FIA, the world governing body for motorsport, are eligible to start. All races will take place as part of the supporting programme of the ADAC GT Masters. There will be two races over the distance of one hour per weekend. Two drivers share the cockpit and swap over during a mandatory pit stop around the middle of the race. A system of vehicle classification (Balance of Performance) ensures equal opportunities between the different vehicle concepts. Before the start of the season, a basic classification is determined, which is continuously checked during the season and adjusted if necessary.
