FALCON PRO 2013

Now in it’s 6th Year Falcon Pro

provides a Race Series for Fun, Competitive, Low cost, Segmental racing in 3 Classes for

all levels of racer from Novice to Pro in a One Day format with Quality, Nationwide venues.

Welcome to Falcon Pro 2013!

This coming season gives a range of 6 tracks, 3 with 4 lanes, 3 with 6 lanes and a great mix of both club and raceway venues with good facilities and race control.  Additionally 2013 sees Falcon Pro affiliated to BSCRA and racers will receive points towards their BSCRA ranking from their results in the  Falcon Pro Formula One Class.


The series has been created and modified over the years with the help of racer feedback to provide great, fun, competitive and low cost racing, encouraging novices to race alongside the Pro’s and sharpen their racing skills whilst also experiencing the disciplines of segmental racing in  great venues with good organisational skills and facilities.

Throughout the year results and race reports are published generally within 3 days of the last event to keep you updated with results and championship standings, including download files for results.


Although the series has 6 rounds, you only need to race 3 of the first 5 to qualify for double points at the final, so you should find at least 2 of the venues within fairly easy reach + our Midlands round at Rockingham.


Below you will find dates and details for all the venues involved in the series. The dates are fixed for the season to enable you to pre-book cheap accommodation and plan your racing year in advance.We look forward to seeing you in 2013 - Let’s Race  !!

Bodies must be commercially available, mass manufactured and cover the entire chassis with the exception of front wheel stub axles. Dimensional criteria as per BSCRA F1 class (except chassis dimensions in regard to the Devil and JK F1 chassis where the chassis dictates front axle detail.)

Maximum Wing height 38mm. Bodies should be cut to the cut line where available and have a minimum or 1mm vertical edge at the front of the body.
Chassis;- Any U.S.R.A. Approved, unmodified pressed steel production chassis (2 or 3 piece) from the following manufacturers - Parma, Champion, Slot Works, JK Products, Mossetti, Proslot.

Pin tubes must be in the original locations and may be floating or solid.  Pin tubes must be Straight and be located at 90 degrees to the centerline of the chassis. They may not be located or bent to minimise or modify chassis movement in any way. . No pin tube or attachment is allowed to any other part of  the chassis to either brace the pans or centre  section or  modify pan Movement

Front wheels;- Minimum 12.7mm diameter. 0.8mm wide. Wheels must be vertical, they may be entirely made of rubber or must have the outer portion of the tyre made from rubber.

Front Wheels / axle / stub axles must be located in the original axle holes.  There is no requirement for the front wheels to be mounted on a one piece front axle, wheels may be mounted on pins if desired, but must locate through the original axle holes. Wheels must be located on the outer face of the front wheel pillar blocks/mountings within 6mm of outer edge of chassis.

A small amount of material may be removed from the inside of the vertical motor bracket to correctly locate motor but the outer profile of the vertical motor bracket (if intrinsic in the design) must remain unaltered.

Motor & or rear pillar block bracing is allowed. However all must be located BEHIND the leading edge of the motorcan and strictly within the confines of the chassis.
The Minimum rear axle height (when measured from the underside of the chassis to the top surface of the rear axle) is 8.5mm.
Soldering or gluing of additional fittings of any kind may not be attached in any way to the standard chassis to facilitate Lead wire attachment. However a piece of lexan or tape across the opening in the centre section to prevent lead wires dropping is acceptable providing it does not modify chassis movement.
Lead may be attached to the top of the chassis to adjust balance and weight distribution but in no way must this adjust or be seen to modify chassis movement.

The scrutineers decision on all above matters is final.
