Ran last weekend alongside BMCRC-MRO Championships competition, the first round of the 2020 British Sidecar Championship at Cadwell Park boasted an entry list which included true three wheeling roads royalty.

The all conquering Birchall brothers Ben & Tom, endured a mixed weekend in terms of results with a top five finish in the opening 14 opening lap, followed by a non finish in the corresponding 12 lap encounter.

Fellow Mountain Course great John Holden joined by Jake Lowther for Saturday, Sunday’s action, showed all his guile, experience, gritty race craft to earn a fourth place finish within the second three wheel race stint.

Team A.R.C’s Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie, who starred and some at the EMRA, Mallory Park meeting, proved once again that they can hold their own with elite Sidecar exponents, sealing very respectable 7th, 8th place finishes.
