How does the competition work?

What order will falcons race in?
Saturday 26th | Qualifiers; The race order for both the Flat race and Hunt race will be randomly selected and announced on Friday 4th September.
Sunday 27th | Final; The order of flying at the final will be the same as the race order at the qualifiers, for reasons of appetite. This applies only for the 60 fastest falcons in the flat race, and 30 falcons in the hunt race. Falcons going through to the final will be announced following the last qualifying flight on Saturday!
Is the event invitation only?
The event is open to all. However, you must purchase a ticket to attend.
Do I need to enter a falcon in order to attend?
A falcon isn’t required to attend the weekend event. We welcome falconers, spectators, breeders and trades.
Can a falcon be entered into both races?
Yes, the same falcon can be entered into both the Flat race and Hunt race.
What falcons can enter the competition?
The races are open to all falcons of any species, sex or age.
While the UK falcon racing scene is in its infancy, the races are open class, meaning falcons of different species compete head to head in the same category.
Do I need to bring my own Wingbeat Roprey model to participate in the Hunt race?
Yes, you are required to bring any of the Wingbeat Roprey models to take part in the Hunt race. The wings and fuselage must be factory finished, however the internal components may be modified if desired.
Does my team need its own pilot?
Yes, each pilot may only fly for one team. This is to ensure a fair competition without a pilot flying favourably for one team over another.
If you do not have your own pilot, you can either pilot for yourself and have a friend slip the falcon for you, or join a friends team allowing the teams’ pilot to fly for you.
What if the event is cancelled due to COVID-19
In the occurrence that the event is cancelled due to Covid-19, you will be fully refunded.
