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.
