Falken Motorsports added two new drives to its 2021 line-up. 

The company said the new joiners, Lance David Arnold and Alessio Picariello, will bring a strong mix of Nordschleife and Porsche experience for the current year.

Arnold is a 34-year-old German TV show presenter and a Nordschleife specialist with experience driving the Porsche 911 GT3 R at the Green Hell. He will join Falken’s long-standing driver Martin Ragginger and his fellow compatriot Klaus Bachler. Ragginger and Bachler led Falken to its first overall victory at the Nurburgring in 2018.

On the other hand, Picariello is a Porsche Motorsport Asia Pacific driver and the winner of the LMGTE Drivers’ Championship in the 2020 European Le Mans Series. He will join Former DTM driver and Bathurst 12h winner Dirk Werner and 2018 Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland champion Thomas Preining in the second car. Werner and Preining are returning to the team for 2021 after finishing service with the works team.

The team is also welcoming Sven Muller’s return, who is an experienced Porsche driver with the works team. Muller will support the team with international GT race outings along with the Nürburgring event.

The team will race two Porsche 911 GT3 R cars and take part in seven rounds of the Nurburgring Endurance Series (NLS) and the legendary ADAC 24h Race at the Nurburgring. The season opener is scheduled for the ADAC Westfalenfahrt on March 27th.
