Tim Reeves lap record was looking threatened by the man himself as he and Greg Cluze (E-Aide Motorsport/Remse Racing Yamaha) blistered round in qualifying to claim pole position. Series leaders Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood were the only crew looking likely, just half a second adrift for second on the grid. When it came to race time however, a wet track made for something of a lottery.

Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood (Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki) left Knockhill on top of the standings and a twenty-five point margin over Reeves who was in Hungary.

2015 British F1 Sidecar champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood were aiming for a triple victory this weekend but their hopes were dashed when Ryan dislocated his shoulder during practice on Friday.

Round 3 of the 2016 Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship took place in Knockhill, Scotland, at the weekend. This was a three-race round and the pair's main rivals were absent owing to a date clash with the world championship, so the stakes were high for Ricky and Ryan.

The weekend got off to a bad start with Ryan falling off the outfit during the first practice session. He dislocated his shoulder in the process and was unable to take part in the rest of the weekend's racing action.

Round 3 of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship was held on the 24-26th June at the Knockhill circuit in Scotland.

After the disappointment of a blown engine at the previous round at Brands Hatch, MKRacing's driver, Martin Kirk and passenger, Ben Hughes were keen to get some good results and put some more points on the board. A new engine had been given the Keith Whiting treatment and fitted to the outfit.

Despite a smaller than normal grid at Knockhill's round three of the championship, the racing was frantic with the door of opportunity 'shoved wide open for some new names to score big points. Drama was evident from the word go, as the Quattro Plant Cool Kawasaki passenger Ryan Charlwood was side-lined with a dislocated shoulder.

In a show of camaraderie typically to be found in the sidecar paddock, L&W Team Principle Dave Walton loaned passenger Charlie Richardson to his intense rivals as stand-in for Charlwood. Richardson's regular driver, championship challenger Andy Peach was unable to compete at Knockhill due to a short-term illness.

Round three of the British Sidecar Championship goes north of the border over the weekend of 24/25th June at a crucial time for the front runners. Leaders Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze have a dilemma in that there is a date clash with the Hungarian round of the World Championship which they also lead.

Their problem is exacerbated by the fact there are three races in Scotland, so potentially seventy-five points are there to be won or lost. Reigning Champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood are in no doubt as to where their priorities lie, and that is to maximise the trip north and claim the title lead. The Quattro Pant Cool Kawasaki duo chased Reeves to within a fraction of a second at Brands, so it is fair to say they are on his case.

Round 2 of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship was held on the 20-22nd May at the Brands Hatch Indy Circuit.
