Ricky and Ryan will be racing for the first time at Cadwell Park for round eight of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship this weekend.
They have tested at the Lincolnshire circuit before but have never raced there.
It’s a very different track to Thruxton. Where Thruxton is fast, Cadwell is very twisty so the challenges are completely different. It will be nice for the guys to finally race there.
In the past two rounds, Ricky and Ryan finally put the technical issues that had been slowing them down in the first half of the championship behind them. With just three rounds to go, they are aiming to secure more podium finishes and ideally a few wins to end the season on a high.
Thruxton proved to be very challenging for the pair. They had to race in the wet, which isn’t their strongest suit, and witnessing a rather spectacular sidecar crash in the last race had quite an effect on everyone.
But it’s onwards and upwards as they say. Ricky and Ryan’s attention is now fully on Cadwell Park and getting a win (or two) under their belt.
Now that they know what the problem was with the outfit, they can focus on fine-tuning the settings and show everyone what they’re made off. As you can imagine, they’re really hungry for a win now!
Cadwell Park is a two-race event for the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship, with the first race taking place on Saturday and the second race on Sunday.
