For The Britcar 24
With one Adam Sharpe Motorsport Falcon confirmed for next week’s
Britcar 24 Hours, we can now add that Mike Newton’s similar
(at least similarly named - Newton's car is rather older) machine
will also be in the line-up – to be driven by Newton himself,
Tommy Erdos, Adam Wiseberg and TBA.
tested the big machine at Croft on Wednesday of this week and “the
car ran very well, but we’ve still got a few things to do
to it before the race”.
promises that the approach to this event will be a very relaxed
one: “We’re out to have some fun: we’re not going
to be competitive with the Moslers.”
The noise level
of the Falcon was tested at Croft, and although it was very slightly
higher than the Britcar 24 maximum of 102 dB, that will be sorted
out before the track opens next Friday.
Plenty of preview
material to come next week. There are 63 entries on the latest list
- and they include at least 23 drivers who have raced at Le Mans
(including four of this year's class winners: Tommy Erdos, Mike
Newton, Lawrence Tomlinson and Richard Dean - and one overall winner).
