VIDEO: 900+HP XF Falcon 440ci Windsor Barn Find at the Radial Prepped Track Hire! | Test Day

Published: Thursday August 3 2023
When we say Barn Find, it's not technically accurate... The car has been owned by Paul for the whole time but he hasn't had it out in 20 years.... So technically it is a Barn Find, but he found it in his own shed himself.... Still counts right? Either way, it's awesome to see it out again for a bit of fun! For something that hasn't been raced in that long either it did remarkibly well considering, definitely a few more laps and some fine tuning and the car should be pretty dialled! The boys brought it down and chucked a radial under the back, which is always a fair challenge if the car has previously been setup for gum boots... This resulted in some pretty decent powerskids; with Paul blowing the tyres off in every gear down the track (which isn't great for any half decent ET), but it was pretty entertaining to watch! We suspect it will end up back on Slicks again the next time we see it out... But we do hope to see this old school gem again soon and watching the progression on it now that Paul has blown that barn dust off it and having it back on the channel very soon! If you haven't seen the behind the scenes documentary on what went into the track for the upcoming days prior to this event go and have a look! The prep video has been months in the making - with alot of thought, effort and preparation behind the scenes (and we mean ALOT) to make this a truly unique and educational watch for anyone interested in learning just what it takes to turn a track from 'ok' to 'elite'! Seeing some of the W.A Radial Cars finally get the track they've been dreaming of here at the Perth Motorplex in Western Australia was a huge deal, and it's definitely only just the beginning now that we've seen what is actually capable. Check out the interviews with the experts - Justin, Lorenzo and Brendan to get the ins and outs of the weekend and what it took to put this educational documentary together.
