Rising Sidecar Stars Founds/Lowther Confirm TT 2018 Campaign

Aiming to build upon an impressive maiden TT campaign working together in 2017, rising Sidecar stars Alan Founds/Jake Lowther are confirmed to join forces again for TT 2018.

Fourth in last years opening Sure Sidecar encounter, outpacing the likes of Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes and Conrad Harrison/Andy Winkle, it’s fair to say the Yamaha powered duo have the makings of becoming a formidable driver/passenger combination.
