However, properly prepared, the Falcon Sprint was a very effective competition car and became a proven race winner in the US. British racegoers were denied a close look at the Falcon, however, until a couple of years later in 1967when the British Saloon Car Championship changed to less restrictive, Group 5 regulations.Offered here is a Terry Drury Racing FIA Ford Falcon Sprint built as a replacement for their first very successful Falcon Historic Touring Car build. It incorporates all the know-how gained in campaigning the previous car at the top level of historic motorsport during and achievingseveral outrights wins in 2017 in Masters events.
