    Reeves takes win but no championship!

    With dry conditions, but overcast, the lights went out for the last race of the season for the FIM Sidecar World Championship and the FIM Sidecar F2 World Trophy.

    Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze got the perfect start from pole position with their "Remse Racing/Team Eaide" LCR, Yamaha, they set off down "Craner Curves" letting the rest of the field know what their intensions were, a race win would only do for them.

    Championship leaders Pekka Paivarinta and Kirsi Kainulainen with their "44-Racing" LCR, BMW slotted in behind Reeves and Cluze, they had to stay out of trouble throughout the race, and hope that their machine would last the race distance to take the championship title.
