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.
Michelin Le Mans Cup
The Michelin Le Mans Cup is an international endurance racing series for vehicles running under LMP3 and GT3 regulations. This season, the Le Mans Cup holds six events on the most beautiful race tracks in Europe. On all race weekends, a two-hour race with driver change takes place. An exception is the so-called "Road to Le Mans" event as part of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans. In the pre-programme of the 24-hour classic, the Le Mans Cup completes two 55-minute races.
Porsche Carrera Cup
BLACK FALCON competes in the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland for the fifth year in a row in 2021. The team from Meuspath fields two brand new Porsche 992 GT3 Cup cars. Carlos Rivas and Loek Hartog 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 attracted attention last year with consistently strong performances. The common 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 again setting its sights on the championship title in the ProAm classification. The 44-year-old Luxembourg native 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 new car is now set to score a hat-trick of titles.
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.
Creventic 24h Series
The 24h Series of the promoter Creventic consists of 6 long-distance races. In addition to 12 hour races, several 24 hour races are also held. The most famous race of this series is the 24 Hours of Dubai, which traditionally rings in the new season.
The familiar atmosphere during the race events is a particularly distinguishing feature of the racing series. Furthermore, the events are very well planned and prepared by the organizer. In addition to amateurs, semi-professionals and professionals, gentleman drivers also take part, thus providing a colourful field of starters. The different classes are also particularly colourful: along with the latest GT3 cars, a variety of GT and touring cars are also included.
All in all, the 24h series is a very attractive race series for drivers who want to expand their 24 hours and endurance experience further. In addition, the individual races take place at well-known, but also demanding racetracks.
