    The final race for the FIM Sidecar World Championship will see Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze on their "Remse Racing/Team Eaide" LCR, Yamaha start from pole position; they set a time of 1:35.492 in Q2. The team were really happy with the time they set. Although the weather conditions were cooler than Q1 they steadily built up their speed in the session and set the time on lap eight of the nine they did. Reeves said, "I found the track slippy but when we got the heat into the tyres all was good, we got some clear track and we went for it. We are looking forward to the race and we hope it will be good for us".

    Gamma Racing day, Assen.

    With near perfect conditions for racing, and a huge crowd, 28 sidecar teams sat on the grid waiting for the lights to go out.

    It was Markus Schlosser and Thomas Hofer on their "Sidecar Racing Team Schlosser" LCR, Suzuki who got the jump from the line and out dragged all the other teams into the first corner, however Tim Reeves and Gregory Cluze on their "Remse Racing/Team Eaide" LCR, Yamaha, had different thoughts on letting Schlosser and Hofer get away, they nipped up the inside for the lead and set the pace into the "Strubben "corner.

    Also Tony baker and Fiona Baker Milligan changed their engine before the race on their "Cumbria Express" Baker, Suzuki, it was all go in their pit box as they are sharing with Holden and Ramsey.

    "Delannoy and Rousseau Start From Pole Position.

    Approximately two hours before the second qualifying session was to start the heavens opened, not only rain but hailstones too, it was to last a good half hour.
    By the time the qualifying was to start the track had dried but with damp patches and not a lot of grip.


    The time that Sebastien Delannoy and Kevin Rousseau set in Q1 on their "Team Sand Seb 72" LCR, Suzuki was to be good enough for pole position. Delannoy and Rousseau did not go out on track in Q2. Delannoy said later "I decided not to go out on track because it would be very slippy and I would not improve on the time I did in Q1, and I was pretty sure nobody would improve with their times. I am very happy with how the bike is going, we don't have any problems. We are looking forward to the race tomorrow, and a win here would just be the icing on the cake for us.
