The Falken Tire 911 is the only Car in it’s class to be on anything other than Michelin tires. That means it is extra tough to gather tire data with one car when the rest of the field has massive experience and data streaming in to make the tires better. The Falken Tire team has come on strong at the end of the year almost winning at VIR only to be passed on the last couple of corners on the last lap. Petit LeMans was the Falken Tire teams redemption, winning for the second time in a row. Bryan Sellers and Wolfe Henzler who have been team mates for years had the help of Porsche factory driver Marco Holzer for the ten hour endurance race. Falken tire plans to run a full two car team in 2015 to be more competitive against all the factory teams and Bryan and Wolfe will be with the team again.
Dane Cameron and the Turner Motorsport BMW Z4 came out on top to win the TUDOR SCC in the GT Daytona class. Dane is the only winner of the championship because he had different co-drivers throughout the season. Paul Dalla Lana who’s company NorthWest sponsors the number 94 machine had other commitments at the beginning of the season and had to step out. Replacing him was a very talented driver by the name of Markus Palltala, together they went on a tear with back to back podiums and victories. Going into the season finale at the Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta they had a slight 2 point lead over a very competitive and tight field. In the end a 4th place was enough to secure them the championship.
The Turner Motorsport BMW Z4 driven by Dane and Markus are on a hot streak, they have won two races in a row and four on the season to tie for the championship lead with two rounds remaining. Dane would be leading the championship had it not been for a penalty at Daytona that stripped them of their sixth place finish at the season opener at the 24 Hours of Daytona. Dane and Markus have worked hard and built off of their maiden victory at Laguna Seca to pull themselves out of their points deficit. Can Dane and the Turner crew carry this momentum into COTA and Petit Le Mans to capture the GTD championship? only time will tell but it will be fun to watch!
