Backing up their record breaking pace from qualifying, Team A.R.C’s Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie made the perfect start to the 2021 British F2 Sidecar Championship, dominating the opening 15 lap encounter at Brands Hatch.

Crawford/Hardie who between them have amassed over 20 victories at Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough, claimed opening three wheeling spoils this afternoon by the impressive margin of 10.6 seconds over nearest challengers Sean Hegarty/James Neave.

Third place went to the father & son duo of Steve Ramsden/Matty Ramsden whilst fourth place finishers were nine times top 10 TT finisher’s combined Gary Horspole/Kenny Cole.

In total 12 crews completed the 15 lap race stint with highest profile retirees been lead pursuers throughout to Crawford/Hardie, the Cloud Vapers supported duo of Alan Founds/Jake Lowther.

Post race, driver Founds stated via Facebook:

“Chain slip ended our race but bike felt good not the best of starts but was making up time was running P2 until she gave way. Tomorrow is a new day!”
