BSB Supports – Snetterton: Reeves and Rousseau sweep Sidecars with last-lap thriller

In BSB Support, News, Sidecars

TIM Reeves and Kevin Rousseau made a clean sweep of the Molson Group British F1 Sidecars at Snetterton after taking the race two win in a last-lap battle.

The Bonovo Action duo controlled the action in a late scuffle with Todd Ellis and Charlie Richardson as they took a perfect 50 points from Snetterton after victory yesterday.

While Phil Bell and James Connell took the lead off their pole position start, they were soon overtaken by John Holden and Jake Lowther as Sam and Adam Christie slotted into second while Reeves and Rousseau knocked the Bell Racing LCR back to fourth.

But by lap two, the Christie had moved to the front while Reeves and Rousseau levered their way into second ahead of reigning champs Todd Ellis and Charlie Richardson while Holden and Lowther dropped back to fifth.

The leading three outfits quickly stretched a gap to fourth-placed Lewis Blackstock and Paddy Rosney and as Reeves saw a gap, he stuck the Adolf RS outfit up the inside of the Christies at Murray’s to hit the front as Ellis and Richardson followed the world champ through to take second.

As the laps wound down and the gap to third increased, it became a two-horse race as Reeves led Ellis by just 0.146sec with less than four laps to go, but heading onto the Senna Straight it was the Santander Salt LCR of Ellis and Richardson which moved into the lead.

The dice rolled on to the final lap and while the 2019 title holders looked for a way through, they couldn’t get past the six-time British champ, who retook the lead with just a few corners to go en route to his second win of the weekend by just 0.163sec.

Ricky Stevens and Jonny Allum scooped third for Massingberd Mundy Kawasaki while the Christies and Silicone Engineering/Barnes Racing’s Holden and Lowther rounded out the top five.
