Falken Motorsports has said it is satisfied that it can implement a range of procedures for its drivers and team members to resume its 2020 testing.
The next NLS test is scheduled to take place at the Nürburgring on June 15, before racing in NLS2 and 3 a month later.
Both of Falken’s Porsche will be in action at the NLS test with Klaus Bachler and Martin Ragginger sharing one of the 2020 spec 991.2 GT3 R, whilst Sven Müller and Dirk Werner will pilot the other.
Falken stated that the team will respect all the guidance provided by government and race officials and will mandate other measures including separate driver changing areas, individual driver briefings with the pit garage and truck closed to all non Falken staff.
“I think I speak for all the drivers in feeling confident and comfortable that Falken and the organisers have done all they can to provide a safe environment for us to return,” said Martin Ragginger. “We understand fans will be sad not to be able to be there but we all have a role to play in keeping to the guidelines at this time. The NLS organisation fought hard to get us back on track and by staying at home and following us online, that’s the best way to show your support for us, the teams, drivers and of course the NLS and the Nürburgring and all the other businesses that rely on it.”
