After starting the year with a win in the 24 Hours of Dubai, Black Falcon will once again focus on the Blancpain Endurance Series and the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring this year. (En Français)

Team manager Sean Breslin told Endurance-Info the goal is to enter two Mercedes SLS AMG GT3s in the Pro Cup, even though the deal isn’t completely been reached.

Additionally, two Black Falcon SLS AMG GT3s will be participating in the VLN Series and the 24 Hours of Nürbugring.

Driver lineups should be confirmed in the course of next week.

Breslin also expressed his desire to stay with Mercedes, as the SLS AMG GT3 is set to be replaced by the all-new AMG GT3 in 2016.

Black Falcon was considering a move to the GTE-Am class of the FIA World Endurance Championship for the coming season, but the change of brand and costs involved eventually meant the team didn’t went through with it.
