Oliver’s Mount Gold Cup: Lowther and Christie win red-flagged Sidecar opener

In News, Oliver's Mount, Roads, Sidecars

JOHN Lowther and Tom Christie drew first blood this afternoon as they powered to the first Sidecar race win of the weekend at Oliver’s Mount after multiple red flags delayed action.

Just two laps into the original start, Sheene Classic winners Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie were forced to bow out as their bike lost its chain after sitting in second, forcing red flags as they got the Team ARC machine out of harm’s way.

On the four-lap restart, Lowther and Christie immediately dropped the hammer and stretched an insurmountable gap on their LCR Honda with Conrad Harrison and Andy Winkle holding off the reunited Greg Lambert and Julie Canipa in the race for second.

But action was brought to a halt towards the end of lap four as Kev Thornton and David Hainsworth crashed.

While a result was declared, organisers reported that the Thornton Racing duo’s injuries were non-life-threatening as they were taken to hospital.
