Black Falcon has confirmed the lineup of the sole Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3 it will enter in the Pro Cup of the Blancpain Endurance Series.

Dubai 24 winners Yelmer Buurman, Hubert Haupt and Abdulaziz Bin Turki Al Faisal will continue their successful collaboration on European soil this season.

Haupt and Al Faisal already have a podium finish under their belt in the series with a third place in last year’s season ending Nürburgring 1000, with Buurman replacing Andreas Simonsen in the lineup this year.

The Dutchman already competed with the German team in several VLN races and the Nürburgring 24h in 2014.

Despite its initial aim to field two cars in the Pro Cup, Black Falcon will enter their second Mercedes in the Pro Am Cup, with the lineup to be announced shortly.
