Brands Hatch was blessed with blue skies and warm sunshine for the duration of N.G.R.R.C.’s three day opening event of the 2021 season, hosting the first round of this year’s A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship.
The majority of teams took advantage of two optional test sessions on Friday afternoon, and whilst untimed, it was evident that Team A.R.C.’s Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie (LCR Suzuki) were on front running pace, this crew having taken the longer Brands Hatch G.P. lap record last October. However, most impressively, series debutant Harry Payne – with the experienced Mark Wilkes alongside him (GP Yamaha) were matching the fastest times.
