XERO Competition's British GT driver Alan Bonner took to Brands Hatch last weekend to join another regular British GT racer Adam Sharpe to race in the newly arrived Ford Falcon.

The Aussie V8 muscle car was shipped from Australia and arrived in time for the 2 hour Britcar race on the Indy Circuit at Brands Hatch.

Electrical problems and a puncture hampered the qualifying session and the Falcon was placed 13th on the grid.

It was Alan Bonner who started the race and fought his way through the field bringing the car into the pits in a magnificent 2nd position overall, handing over to Adam Sharpe. Adam drove extremely well and took advantage of a second safety car period to make to the pits for a splash and dash, finally bringing the car safely home and a 2nd placed podium on the cars first ever outing in Europe.

Expect to see the Ford Falcon making an appearance in the British GT Championship later in the season.
