Team A.R.C’s Lee Crawford/Scott Hardie added the 2021 FSRA (Formula Sidecar Racing Association) British F2 Sidecars title to their decorated racing CV’s, following a textbook display in the opening ten lap three wheeling contest at Croft.
Going into Croft with a 74 point Championship lead, Oliver’s Mount Scarborough ‘King Pins’ Crawford/Hardie knew that to clinch the aforementioned British F2 title, they had to finish ahead of nearest Championship pursuers, Harry Payne/Mark Wilkes.
In scintillating form during qualifying, the following 10 lap race saw the English/Scottish pairing dominate taking race honours by over ten seconds.
With Payne/Wilkes placing second, this gave Crawford/Hardie an unassailable Championship lead of nigh on 80 points.
It’s been a truly faultless season for the Suzuki powered duo, who prior to unforeseen circumstances were due to tackle this year the TT Races.
Joining Crawford/Hardie, Payne/Wilkes on the rostrum from the F2 Sidecars Croft opener were John Lowther/Matty Rostron whilst fourth place was secured by Mountain Course specialists Conrad Harrison/Jake Lowther.
