Mixed start for Team Lick Racing
11:22am Tuesday 22nd April 2014 in Sport
HIGHBRIDGE-based F2 sidecar pair of Dean Nicholls and Paul Skinner made a mixed start to the 2014 season at Brands Hatch on April 5 and 6.
The pair started seventh row on the grid for the first race on Saturday and with a tough battle though out the race managing to finish fourth across the line.
On Sunday morning, starting sixth row of the grid with a great wet set up for this race, the team left the lights with a good start and within the first corner it was obvious the pair were not only going for the win but for an outright win over the bigger F1 bikes with 1000cc engines.
Within the first four laps the pair had battled to the front of both F2’s and F1’s and coasted round, finishing first with the fastest lap and a 12 second gap between the next bike.
