Last June saw the Beverley based duo build and some upon their momentous event debut from 2017, banking series of impressive results.
Following a productive practice week, the Locate.im Sidecar races would yield respectively excellent 8th, 10th place finishes, following series of high calibre, accomplished performances.
Outside of the top ten finishes, TT 2018 also saw them lap extremely close to the prestigious 110 mph lap mark, ending the two weeks of Mountain Course competition with a new personal best lap speed of 109.907 mph.
