Two out of two for Birchall brothers in Sidecar class

Ben and Tom Birchall backed up their victory in the first Sidecar race at this year’s TT with a win in the second.

The Birchall brothers took the lead by Glen Helen and didn’t look back eventually beating John Holden & Lee Cain by 26 seconds. Conrad Harrison and Holden’s former passenger Andy Winkle took the final podium position in third place.

Lewis Blackstock along with passenger Patrick Rosney finished the race in fourth place ahead of Karl Bennett & Maxime Vasseur. Tony Baker & Fiona Baker-Holden finished the race in sixth place with Robert Handcock & Ken Edwards seventh. Gregory Lambert & Julie Canipa were eighth, Wayne Lockey & Mark Sayers ninth, and Gary Knight & Daniel Evanson tenth.

The action was delayed due to weather conditions and there were some damp patches around the circuit. The pace was not quite as fast as the Birchall’s record breaking speeds in the first race, however it was not far off. Dave Molyneux & Dan Sayle, Peter Founds & Jevan Walmsley, and Estelle Leblond & Melanie Farrier were amongst the retirements from the race.
