Sidecars to storm Anglesey this weekend

In FSRA, News, Sidecars

SIDECARS are back on track with the FSRA this weekend as the series joins the Wirral 100 Motor Club for Round Four at Anglesey.

Following an 11-week break from competition, the F2 British Championship returns to the coastal Welsh circuit for the tenth consecutive year, and will hit the tarmac alongside its sister championship – the F350/Post-Classic/Pre-Injections.

While the latter series resumes after just a fortnight’s break from its last round, run in conjunction with the Aintree Motorcycle Racing Club, the nearly three-month gap in racing for the F2s has made all the outfits even more eager to pursue defending champs and points leaders Pete Founds and Jevan Walmsley.

Father-son Oliver’s Mount-winning duo Steve and Matty Ramsden and brothers John and Jake Lowther are currently tied 38 points behind the 2016 title holders, but with the series at the half-way mark this weekend, it’s still anyone’s guess.

Championship newcomers and F2 Cup leaders Brian Ilaria and Jody James sit just 12 points ahead of Manxmen Michael Jackson and Callum Crowe, with Ralph Remnant and Samantha Tilley five points further behind in third.

In addition to the extended-distance 20-lap races at the Welsh circuit this weekend, there will be a tribute lap for the late Roy Hawkins immediately before the British F2 qualifying at 2pm.

The current FSRA Super F2 lap record for Anglesey, a 1:12.668, belongs to Simon Neary and Dipash Chauhan from their 2010. Both the Ramsdens and Founds/Walmsley set 1:13.1’s in last year’s races and if the weather holds up, the records could be broken.
