    I'm going to be interested to see how the Falken bricks, errrr...tires perform at the Sebring winter tests next month with Henzler behind the wheel. Porsche wouldn't place a factory driver in a slug so perhaps Falken developed some decent rubber.

    A friend of mine flew over to Porsche in Germany for testing, I want to say on the 19th. Would this mean he's a candidate for the 2011 season?
