Among the amazing field of refined European sports cars at the Nürburgring, there’s this big ol’ slab of American iron towing race cars around... because Falken Motorsport obviously knows how to build a bad ass support truck.

There are plenty of great race cars out there wearing Falken’s colors, and the Nürburgring 24 seems to have them all. One of their Porsches is definitely in the paddocks somewhere, and I also met two of the Falken BMWs, the E30 and the E39 M5 drift cars.
