    Team SaS F2 Sidecar racing husband and wife duo of Jen and Giles Stainton recorded a brace of second places in round five of the EMRA sidecar championship at Mallory Park on Sunday.

    After taking a much needed weekend off to recharge their batteries and get the handlebars that were broken at Cadwell repaired, the pair from Upton was raring to go and headed out for some practice laps to bed in some new brake pads and Giles to get used to the new handlebars.

    Husband and wife Sidecar racing team Giles and Jen Stainton from Upton made a late decision to travel north to East Fortune for a change of venue and opponents at the weekend resulting in three top 10 finishes to their races.

    Jen said: “We made a quite late decision to travel to East Fortune last weekend and the long journey along with a week of engine swapping meant that we were pretty tired when we got there!"

    Jen and Giles Stainton travelled to Anglesey for a round of the Wirral club championship where they rode to a clutch of fourth places in the F2 Sidecar races recently.

    Saturday morning was spent familiarising themselves with the circuit layout as they had only been there once before and that was a year ago.

    Qualifying saw the husband and wife team from Upton finish the session in seventh place and Jen commented: “Our competition for the weekend was really strong, and surrounded by class teams we were keen to get out and learn as much as we could on the Coastal circuit. We achieved a 1m 24s in qualifying but knew that our gearing wasn't quite right and also felt that we should make some adjustments to tyre pressure and suspension.”

    F2 Sidecar racing team SaS, Giles and Jen Stainton took a well deserved win and third place at Cadwell Park last weekend in the Auto66 Cub race plus third place in the second round of the British F2 Sidecar cup.

    Going out for timed practice on new tyres it took a few laps to bed them in and the husband and wife team felt they had hit their stride and were keen to return to the track for qualifying. They were delighted to find they had qualified in 16th place overall for the British championship race and recorded a best lap of 1m 50s which is four seconds faster that their previous personal best time.

    Husband and wife sidecar racing team Giles and Jen Stainton were at Darley Moor for the final race of the 2016 Darley Moor club Sidecar championship and they were pleasantly surprised to find that after recording a sixth place in the race they had secured third position in the final standings.

    The Lincolnshire duo were looking forward to Saturday as the track time allocated for testing is very generous and usually seems to run smoothly for them.
