Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie underlined their status as firm favourites for three wheeling success at the Oliver’s Mount Spring Cup, via a storming display within the opening six lap Sidecar race.
Never headed over the six lap encounter, Team A.R.C’s Crawford/Hardie who’s respective Scarborough wins totals now stand at 14 and 10, looked in a class of their own as they sealed race victory by the impressive margin of 26.660 seconds.
Lead pursuers to the British F2 Championship leaders were the Ramsden’s Steve & Matty, following a gritty, tenacious performance.
John Lowther/Matty Rostron captured third whilst fourth place went to White Rose Racing’s Shaun Chandler/Ben Chandler.
Remaining racers to complete Saturday’s sole Sidecar race at England’s only active real roads circuit were Bruce Moore/Ashley Moore, Paul Riley/Jody James, Chris Schofield/Shaun Parker, Lee Eastell/Andy Haynes and solo, three wheeling Mountain Course exponent Alun Thomas/Adam Nix.
We must mention as well that non finishers Conrad Harrison/Andy Winkle, early lead challengers to Crawford/Hardie, Michael Russell/Tom Bryant race proceedings both ended on lap two.
