    Mansfield brothers Ben and Tom Birchall contested the two races in the Isle of Man Southern 100 F2 Sidecar class last week resulting in a resounding win in the first race and a DNF in the Championship race on Thursday.

    Starting the first race on Wednesday from a second row grid position the Mitchells of Mansfield supported riders got a good start to the six lap Ace Hire and Sales F2 Sidecar event to nip through into second place. As they crossed the line to start lap two there was less than a second separating the first four outfits with all four running inside the existing lap record.
