After a disappointing race meeting at Snetterton, the three Falcon drivers, James Nutbrown, Ash Robinson and Patryk Szczerbinski all made significant gains at Rockingham today. The team have been busy behind the scenes, working hard to close the gap and Qualifying saw the fruits of that hard work with two fourth place grid positions for Patryk and Ash and James not far behind. Race one today saw a closely fought battle between six drivers with all three Falcon drivers involved. Patryk made the early running in second place, but it was Ash who emerged as the best place team driver in Fourth place after a race that could easily have seen one or two Falcon drivers on the podium. It’s not the result we wanted but I’m encouraged by the pace that we’ve found and we’ll be pushing for better in tomorrow’s races commented team manager Nick Streatfield.
Team drivers, James Nutbrown, Ash Robinson and Patryk Szczerbinski resume testing this Friday for the 6th, 7th and 8th rounds of the Intersteps Championship at Rockingham near Corby. As usual team driver coach, Craig Dolby will be on hand as Falcon look to challenge for race wins this weekend.
