F2 SIDECARS dominated the race action as Bemsee’s RKB-F1 and F2 Sidecar series roared into life at Brands Hatch.
While it was the F1 machine of Andy Peach and Ken Edwards which claimed pole last Saturday morning, when it came to the racing, it was all about the F2s.
It was a case of father and son at the top of both result sheets in race one, as John Holden and Lee Cain took the overall win in their Silicone Barnes Racing F2, and son George, along with passenger Oscar Lawrence took the F1 win.
The race had been a battle between Holden/Cain and Peach/Edwards with the lead changing several times, but when the polesitters retired two laps from the flag, Holden and Cain were able to coast home to a win of almost 15 seconds.
Second over the line was UK Clubsport columnist Harry Payne and passenger Olly Lace, while Reeves and James were third. George Holden and Oscar Lawrence were sixth, but took the F1 win.
Holden and Cain doubled-up in race two, as Peach and Edwards took second and the F1 win, ahead of Payne and Lace.
In Sunday’s wet first race, it was Reeves and James who took the spoils, almost four seconds ahead of Peach and Edwards, with Holden and Cain third.
The final race of the weekend had a much closer finish. With a few teams missing from the grid – such as Holden/Cain and Payne/Lace – Reeves and James looked to have it all tied up after getting an early lead.
However, with Alan Schofield and Matthew Rostrom creeping up and eating away at their lead, they made a mistake and dropped to third and the then fifth.
Schofield and Rostrom took the spoils ahead of Matthew Dix and Shaun Parker as Peach and Edwards celebrated third and another F1 win.
