F1 Sidecar driver Gary Horspole with passenger Jimmy Connell recorded an eighth and then a seventh place in the eighth round of the British F1 Sidecar championship at Assen in the Netherlands at the weekend taking the pair to seventh in the rider standings on points.

Horspole from Sleaford and Connell from Scotland qualified the LCR Suzuki in seventh place to start the first 10 lap affair from a fifth row grid position and when the lights went out they got away to a cracking start racing within the mixed grid of British and Dutch championship challengers with each set of riders racing for points in their own championship

Tim Reeves and Patrick Farrance enjoyed a superb two days of racing at Oliver's Mount, Scarborough at the weekend with the AOS/Team E-Aide Motorsport pairing winning all four Formula Two Sidecar races.

Saturday's opening six lap race was held in wet conditions but a superb start by the duo saw them grab the lead at the first corner and, aided by the fastest lap of the race, they were able to steadily increase their lead over Ian and Carl Bell to eventually take the win by almost five seconds.

After a long summer break, the British F1 Sidecar Championship returns to The Netherlands and the world famous Assen circuit, to resume battle in the 2015 series over the weekend of 18-20th September. It will be a particularly crowded grid, as once again the ranks will be swelled by a strong national contingent of Dutch Championship regulars.

The AOS Be Wiser Kawasaki duo of Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood are on course to lift their first British title, and will be looking to continue the rich vein of form which has seen them take victory in eight of the thirteen races so far. Second in the title chase are Andy Peach and Charlie Richardson (L&W Kawasaki) with a seventy-two point deficit, and just two victories to their names. Next up, comes the Express Tyres pairing of Steve Kershaw and Rob Wilson, ahead of an in-form Ben Holland/Lee Watson (Finning Cat Kawasaki) and former champion Roger Lovelock/Aki Alto who was forced to sit out three races at Thruxton.

As usual, Cadwell Park served up a fascinating weekend's racing. Good weather, two more-than-interesting races, especially Saturday's and two new race winners. Neither championship was clinched leaving all to play for at Croft in three weeks time.


Yet again, passengers featured in the news with new pairings as a result of previous incidents with a couple more to add to the list this weekend. Pete Founds paired up with Jevan Walmsley, Jevan gelling immediately and they gained second place after qualifying. Sean Reeves/Mark Wilkes took pole, John Holden/James Neave were third, Alan Founds/Tom Peters fourth and Lee Crawford was fifth, Lee having secured the services of one Patrick Farrance in the chair.
