Opie Oils Sponsored Team Shand Racing report of ACU/FSRA F2 Sidecar Championship at Silverstone

This is a write up from Opie Oils Sponsored Team Shand Racing report of ACU/FSRA F2 Sidecar Championship at Silverstone;

Gordon Shand and Phil Hyde “Team Shand Racing” travelled to the second round of the “ACU/FSRA British F2 Sidecar Championship” at Silverstone which was running alongside the “BMCRC-MRO Championship. It was a trying weekend for the team. After years running Suzuki 600 engines, the team decided to change to Honda power. Driver Gordon worked throughout the winter getting the Honda units fitted into the “Shand Chassis”. However due to work commitments the team did not have much time testing and development with the machine.

Hi Folk’s

This is a write up from Chris Brown who is an Opie Oils sponsored Driver.

For once in my life I was pretty organised for this race event which made a lovely change being a lot more relaxed the day before the event rather than running around like a headless chicken. Friday saw me going to pick up the race car mid-afternoon to bring it home for the last tiny bit of prepping before the race the following day. The car had already been checked over and was ready to go mechanically.
