PINEWOOD RACEWAY PRO FALCON SPORTS 1/32
PRO FALCON 1/32 Sports
All the racing during the day provided some very close finishes and as you can see from the results table the top qualifiers were quite close as well.
Technology in this class was intersting with new chassis being tried for the first time incopetition from Richard Mack and AB Slotsport.
Richard Top qualified by just one part of a lap from Paul Harwood. In the top heat, this trend continued with Paul and Richard finishing with just 8 parts between them. Special mentions should also be made of Martin Ellis, who ran a standard JK 3 piece Laser into 8th Position overall and also Nigel Barrow who ran one of the New Hypersport production chassis into 6th position overall (and it was his first 1/32 scale race for “some time”!
