    Round Two Oulton Park

    Conditions for qualifying were cold and damp, but the Reeves Brothers banged in five quick laps on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki and then sat back. Chris Walker/Ashley Hawes and the Kershaw/Clark pairing ran at the front until the closing stages, when the reigning champions Stevens/Charlwood put the JG Speedfit Kawasaki into second. Amazingly, in fourth place were the Birchall Brothers with a very rapid 600cc Yamaha LCR just one second off the pole position time.

    The Race

    Late in the day, in gloriously sunny conditions the pack charged into Old Hall Corner with the pole men just edging it ahead of Stevens/Charlwood and a tooth and nail scrap between Walker/Hawes and Kershaw/Clark. The Birchall Brothers were less fortunate and did not make the most of their third row start on their Mitchells of Mansfield Yamaha. They were down in around eight place at the end of lap one with it all to do.

    After a fiercely contested opening round on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit in front of a packed grandstand, the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship arrives at historic Oulton Park for the second encounter and an equally enthusiastic Cheshire crowd. These picturesque surroundings have played host to the greatest sidecar racers in the world over many decades, and the May Bank Holiday Weekend promises to uphold that tradition.

    Five times World Champion Tim Reeves, now back with younger brother Tristan, heads the charge as prime challenger for the 2017 crown, and leads the title chase after the opener at Brands Hatch where they landed an emphatic double. British Champions together in 2012, they want it back on their Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki.

  • Team Founds Racing #44 - A Fairy tale year.

    After the success of the 2014 season, it's fair to say that we had some pretty big boots to fill if we wanted to continue in those giant footsteps. The 2015 season saw our return to the Isle of Man TT Races, where we finished 11th and 6th in 2014, lapping at over 107mph and our return to the British F2 sidecar championships,although after winning the F2 cup championship last year, we were now in the elite Super F2 Championship in which we finished a close 2nd in 2014.
