Sleaford sidecar racer Gary Horspole with Scottish passenger Jimmy Connell rode to a fine sixth place in the first round of the British F1 Sidecar championship at Oulton Park over the Bank Holiday weekend.

This year the championship is split into two different categories both run within the same race. The F1 outfits are joined on the grid by the lesser powered 600cc F2 machines and the series runs in the same format as the world championship. The main F1 riders ride in the F1 British championship and the F2 machines take part in the F2 British Cup.

Unpredictable weather over the bank holiday weekend would always be a factor in this important first event in the new season. As it happened, a dry sunny free practice allowed new boy Chris Walker to find his way around in a respectable exploratory style to finish seventh in the standings, just five seconds adrift of the masters Tim Reeves/Greg Cluze and just four seconds off the reigning champions Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charlwood.

Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze got their challenge for the 2016 British Sidecar Championship underway in fine style on Bank Holiday Monday with the duo taking a dominant win at Oulton Park. The Team E-Aide Motorsport pairing took an early lead and went on take a near seven second win to ensure they currently lead both the World and British Championships.

Conditions at the Cheshire venue were mixed throughout but Tim and Gregory signalled their intentions from the outset, topping the timesheets in Saturday's free practice session. The solitary qualifying session was held in damp, but drying, conditions and a time of 1m45.155s looked like it would give them pole position. However, in the closing stages, Andy Peach/Charlie Richardson pipped them and they duly lined up for Monday's race in second spot.
