SIDECAR titles were wrapped up early at Bemsee’s Pembrey round this weekend as Sean Reeves and Paul Thomas clinched the F2 crown while the Clarkes secured the F1 trophy.
Stamping their authority on the RKB F1 and F2 classes, Reeves and Thomas took a hat-trick of wins, only missing out on victory in Sunday’s first race, while Craig and Craig Andrew Clarke settled for mid-pack finishes to wrap up the big bike championship.
The Velocity V1 duo took two overall wins on Saturday, the first coming ahead of Dean Nicholls and Kenny Cole, who also took the F1 win. Third went to Sean Hegarty and Jake Lowther as second F2 outfit home.
Reeves and Thomas’ second win on their LCR Honda outfit came as they crossed the line nearly four seconds in front of the pack, while Hegarty/Lowther and Nicholls/Cole switched positions on the podium, as Nicholls and Cole again took the F1 win.
It was another F2 overall win and all-F2 podium in Sunday’s opening race, this time with Hegarty and Lowther on the top step. Mike Cookson and William Moralee were second, with third going to Andy King and Andrew Sigsworth after Reeves and Thomas dropped out of podium contention on the final lap.
They returned to winning ways in the final race, however, taking the overall victory and F2-class win number three. The Clarkes took the F1 win on their City Lifting/CYB Fibreglass Windle outfit and were awarded second overall after Cookson and Moralee, who finished as runners up, were handed a 10-second jump start penalty.
