From the TT press office

Ryan and Callum Crowe claimed their first win at the Isle of Man TT Races with victory in Sidecar TT Race 1, the Manx brothers coming home 26.894 seconds ahead of Pete Founds/Jevan Walmsley with Alan Founds/Rhys Gibbons taking third.

The Crowes set the fastest lap of the race on their Kelproperties Honda at 119.800mph to be the first Manx Sidecar winners since 2014 and emulate the feat of their five-time winner dad Nick Crowe.

With perfect conditions, the three-lap race got underway at 5.45pm and the Crowes led through Glen Helen on the opening lap, their advantage over Founds/Walmsley (FHO Racing Honda) already 6.3 seconds. Crawford/Hardie (ARC Newton Aycliffe/SJH Bodyworks Kawasaki) slotted into third a further 4.4 seconds adrift with Blackstock/Rosney (Dave Holden Racing Yamaha), Founds/Gibbons (Founds Racing Yamaha) and Reeves/Wilkes (Bonovo Action/Carl Cox Motorsport Honda) rounding out the early top six.

From Chris
I’m sure you have all heard by now that we had an issue incident in tonight’s qualifying. It happened just after bishops court. Sorry your practice got cut short gus.

We will be ok tho. Tom has suffered with cuts and bruises, soft tissue damage and is walking wounded. And he has been discharged.

I have 2 punctured lungs (only small) a laceration of my liver, concussion. Soft tissue damage and cuts and bruises and they are keeping me in for observation, hopefully they will let me out tomorrow but we will see.

I have my thoughts on what happened but we will know more when the lads have had a good look at what used to be a bike.

Thanks for everyone’s kind words and support, it means a lot. Thank you and I’ll see you all real soon back in the paddock.

Mallory Park
May 6th & October 13th

Get your teeth into this one! It’s back!!!! The much loved Dongo trophy returns to Mallory Park this year.

Jonny Leubke of Dirty Weekender Campervans has been in talks with Natalie at Mallory and EMRA, with a view to holding a meeting at the beginning of May. It would be an excellent opportunity to gain TT signatures, although it will be open to everyone  and will be an absolute winner to have sidecars back on this prestigious circuit!

The entry fee will be £200 with a £10 day membership for EMRA, with practice, qualifying and the race/races….. yet to be finalised.

Obviously numbers count, there must be a minimum of 16 outfits but a full grid of 24 with the possibility of reserves is what we’re aiming for! It’ll be worth it…… a prize fund is up for grabs……

Johnny has just messaged to update the prize fund currently is at £8k split between the two meetings! The only stipulation is that you must enter and complete the May and October round to qualify for a chance of the winnings!

So what you waiting for?!!! Get the dates in your diary and get sidecars back to Mallory!
