Highbridge-based Formula 2 sidecar racing team hopes to fulfill
their dream of winning the British Championships in 2012.
a hugely successful debut season in 2011 for Dean Nicholls and
Anne Garnish, when they secured their first wins and a third place
in two rounds of the national championships, the next step is
the Auto Cycle Union (ACU) and Formula Sidecar Racing Association
(FSRA) British Formula 2 Championships.
Lumley Engineering has been working throughout the winter to improve
and prepare their machine.
However, without sponsorship, the team's 2012 season would have
been in jeopardy. Fortunately, a Rugby-based businessman, Peter
Blay of health and safety specialists QEH Systems, has come forward
to give financial support.
Dean and Anne are now looking forward to testing at Mallory Park
in February and then competing in the British Championships at
Snetterton, Norfolk in March.
Dean, 49, of Highbridge Motor Tech is the driver of the 599cc
Formula 2 Lumley Engineering Kawasaki sidecar. He moved to the
discipline after years of racing motorcycles. "It should
be a very exciting season of racing ahead," he told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
