Falken Motorsports announced the first details on its upgraded Porsche 997 GT3 R that will be raced in this year’s VLN and Nürburgring 24 Hours events. The driver lineup will remain unchanged and will include: Sebastian Asch, Peter Dumbreck, Wolf Henzler and Martin Ragginger.
The 2013 GT3 R has been upgraded with a new aerodynamic package that includes wider wings, new splitter and double canards, plus a larger rear wing that helps increase downforce. Falken Motorsports also installed enlarged cooling vents around the front, while the wheel arches have also been enlarged to allow the car to ride on larger wheels and tires when compared to last year.
Under the hood, the car will keep the usual 4-liter, flat-six-cylinder engine that delivers a total of 500 horsepower.
First tests of the car will be made at the March, 16th at the annual VLN setup day.
