Falcon Race Course Videos

Looking for any downloadable video of any recent falcon(EA+. Prefur BA) flying around a track. Either a interior or exterior shot would be good. I used to have a interior video of a XR8 or GT flying around a track, drifting around corners e.t.c. but have lost it and have got no idea when i originally got it from. The most recent GT ad would be good too. The prob is you can't download it off the FPV site unfortunetely. I need it for a school assignment so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Theres a clip in aufalcon.com of Grunter going around on a one lap dash. It's an interior shot over his shoulder. May be of help.

Re: Falcon Race Course Videos

Do u know anyone who watches Speedweek? On Saturday there was a quick race at Willowbank (I think) which had a heap of fords & commodores. A WRX STI crossed the line first, but there were all sorts of different fords, the oldest being an XD (newest was an AUI or AUII TS50), and commodores from VB to VYGTS.

Maybe someone could lend you a recording of this episode? It's a long shot, but it had lots of great shots of the Fords, in particular an EA (6 cyl) keeping up with a VX SS on the main straight!

Re: Falcon Race Course Videos

LOL nah the SS was going flat out. These aren't ordinary cars either, the AU TS50 looked like a V8 supercar on the inside. None of the cars had "normal" paint jobs, but I saw a few P plates on the VN & VP commodores

The commentators were going on & on about the EA being "just a six cylinder" when it kept pace with the SS. On one large corner the EA dived in front of the SS, but the SS regained its lead again & the EA ended up tailing it for the rest of the race. This EA had a red & white paintjob, red over the guards & the sides of the bonnet, and white over the raised part of the bonnet.

The Speedweek race was on SBS around 4.45pm, the race was a 10 lap sprint I think. There was a gung-ho driver in a VK who almost lost it a few times around some corners, but he held on to it & the camera angle of his slides made it look awesome :)
