Multiple times race winners at Oliver’s Mount, next gen three wheeling duo Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie are the latest notable driver/passenger combination planning to compete at this years Southern 100.
Driver Crawford who’s S100 exploration next month will be his first time tackling the famous Colas Billown course, has in recent years established himself amongst Sidecar racing’s quickest young drivers.
Alongside passenger Hardie at Scarborough, the Bishop Auckland at last years Gold Cup held off challenges from the likes of Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes, Conrad Harrison/Andy Winkle and the Lowthers John & Jake to seal in fine style victories in the opening Sidecar races.
