Road Racer’s Adventures: British F2 Sidecar Championship, Brands Hatch Day 2

Team A.R.C’s Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie have made it back to back victories at the British F2 Sidecars season opener at Brands Hatch, following another top quality performance.

In command throughout this afternoon’s 15 lap battle, Crawford/Hardie by mid race distance had pulled out an advantage of plus six seconds.

Although dropping their pace slightly in the closing stages, they still emerged victorious by the impressive margin of 8.412 seconds, making it four wins from four race starts during 2021.

Behind the dominant duo of Crawford/Hardie, Sean Hegarty/James Neave secured a second successive 2nd place finish whilst banking the final spot on the podium, were the Ramsden’s Steve & Matty.

Worth noting as well the excellent display from Mountain Course stalwarts Gary Horspole/Kenny Cole, finishing a very creditable fourth.

The British F2 Sidecar Championship scene next moves onto the Donington Park national circuit, with round 2 taking place next month from the 15th-16th May.
