RACE REPORT
ROUND ONE
PINEWOOD RACEWAY
The first round of Falcon Pro 2011 kicked of at Pinewood Raceway on the  23rd of January with 20 keen racers.

Pinewood is the first 6 lane track of the season and racers adjusted gear ratios and set-ups to suit.

It was nice to see some new faces and  competition was close in many races. We even had a Brasilian entrant in the shape of Andre Acker, over in the UK for a couple of weeks.

Lunchtime saw hot food arrive from the Social club across the way which proved very tasty  and much needed, even if the race series organiser ended up wearing most of the apple sauce from his Pork Bap!

Many thanks go to Nigel Barrow and the guys at Pinewood for some smooth organisation, a great venue and a timely finish.

Falcon Pro Race Format is a little different to most, with the two 1/32 classes being qualified from the previous championship results in round one and then the cumulative “Year championship” results from round 2 on.  This saves a huge amount of time and focuses the series on the racing. New drivers join in the lower heats and climb through the heats as the series progresses (Hopefully!)
One guy who managed this with great effect was Ant Hawkes who won production on his first series visit!
Concours Winner in 1/32 Sports was Cliff Bicknell
