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.

Following on from their win in the first round of the FIM world championship cup Mansfield sidecar racers Ben and Tom Birchall travelled the relatively short distance to Oulton Park in Cheshire where they took a decisive victory in the opening round of the British Sidecar cup.


The series takes place within the F1 championship grid and the F2 cup riders race alongside the more powerful F1 machines but are separated on the result sheets to their own respective championships. The team have a 600cc Honda engine housed in their long LCR chassis especially built to contest the world and British F2 cup championships.

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.

After what seems an eternity, the long winter break is finally over and battle will commence for the 2016 British Sidecar Championship next bank holiday weekend at Oulton Park.

I am posting this to see who might possibly be interested in riding with me in the 2016 BSB/RKB-F1 Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship?

Unfortunately, my recent Co-Riders, the brilliant Ken Edwards is still broken from his 'non racing' related injury, and the Equally brilliant Evo has other goals he wants to achieve this year. And I am a bit of a fussy ****, so I am just asking that if any body interested, they look at points below :)
