Round Six - Brands Hatch - July 21-23, 2017

The mid-summer round on the Brands GP circuit was, as expected, drama packed and fiercely contested.

Practice and qualifying were both sun-kissed, with the track in perfect condition. Tim and Tristan Reeves, the former nursing severe bruising after the well-documented Southern 100 crash the previous weekend, were again in brilliant form on their local circuit. From the word go, at near-lap record pace, they laid down a marker on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki and then sat back.

The JG Speedfit/Cool Milk all-female sidecar team of Maria Costello and Kirsty Hauxwell, made their Mallory Park debut in Round 5 of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship.

With over 20 years of road racing experience, Maria Costello is well known to motorsport aficionados for her many achievements, including her MBE for services to motorcycling and achieving the first female podium in a race around the Isle of Man TT.

Given that she typically rides up to 12 different solo race bikes in one season, buying and racing an LCR F2 sidecar in the 600cc ‘Cup’ class is something of a departure for Maria.

“Sidecar racing is so fantastic,” Maria explained... Click read more!!

Gloriously sunny weather prevailed for Saturday qualifying with Tim and Tristan Reeves once again claiming pole.
It was far from a runaway result this time though, as Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clark came to within two-tenths of denying them the place. Anxious to make up for a disappointing Snetterton, Kershaw had the Express Tyres/Blinkbonny Kawasaki on the stop as he completed more laps than anyone else in his efforts to claim the pole.
Sensationally, the Birchall brothers, Ben and Tom used the 600 Yamaha to great effect just a further one-tenth back in third.
Andy Peach/Ken Edwards also pulled off a great result winning the “Battle of the Suzukis” with a stunning fourth ahead of the Stalker Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes (Santander Salt Kawasaki).

The Mitchells of Mansfield supported brothers secured third place in qualifying in a mixed grid of F1 and 600cc outfits and were fastest in their class and as the first of two races got underway the six times TT winners slotted into fourth place overall before moving up to third at the half way stage of the 12 lap affair. They maintained third place throughout the remainder of the race to take the chequered flag as comfortable winners in the 600 class with Ellis/Richardson finishing in second place some distance behind.
