Vimeo Description: At the 61st Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring fueled by Fresh from Florida, Team Falken Tire raced from a 12th place starting position to be a top contender for a majority of the race before earning the final step on the victory podium. With varying track temperatures, different track surfaces and twelve hours of intense competition, Sebring International Raceway demanded the best from drivers, teams and tires. All race long, the 2012 Porsche 911 GT3 RSR pushed forward, fighting through one of the most competitive GT classes the American Le Mans Series has seen.
Wolf Henzler started the endurance event in twelfth and in the first lap, the Falken Tire Porsche had gained six positions. Henzler and co drivers Bryan Sellers and Nick Tandy each completed single stints for the first driver rotation, fighting their way up the GT class, and holding on to their positions. With the right tires, the proper strategy and quick pit stops, Team Falken Tire was able to make consistent lap times, race clean and stay in the top five for a majority of the twelve hour race. With perfectly executed pit stops, the team not only held and gained ground, but spent twenty seconds less of cumulative time in the pit box than any of the other GT class cars. Finishing in third place in the final American Le Mans Series 12 Hours of Sebring puts the team in the third place in the championship heading into Round Two.
