The UK’s top sidecarcross teams will descend on Wakes Colne for round seven of the Maxxis British Sidecarcross Championship on Sunday.

Topping the entries at the Halstead and District Motorcycle Club’s finale to the season at Little Loveney Hall will be 11-times British champion Stuart Brown, with Josh Chamberlain in the chair.

They will be riding a WSP Wasp Zabel 700cc machine, sponsored by Cradley Kawasaki.

Leading the challengers will be brothers Daniel and Joe Millard brothers, on a KTM 610cc machine, who are currently second in the 
series standings, 59 points adrift of Brown with two rounds to go.

In third place are Richard Jenkins and Dan Chamberlain (700cc Zabel WSP), with 
Brett Wilkinson and Steve Kirwin, Simon Bradford and Luke Peters as well as Nick Jarvis and Ryan Humphrey making up the top six respectively.

Supporting solos will include many of the Eastern Centre expert and junior riders.

The winner of the competition, organised by Free Press, to receive VIP family tickets to the event went to Mr W Wilson, from Great Yeldham.

The action begins with practice at 10am, with the first of three legs of the sidecarcross getting things under way at 11.30am.

Admission on the day is 
£10 for adults, under-12s free and 12-18-year-olds and seniors £5.

n Halstead’s top expert rider, Lewis Tombs, retained his fifth place in the National Motocross Series standings after six of eight rounds, held at Culham.

Tombs finished sixth overall on the day in the MX2 Class with 46 points, following a brilliant fifth-place finish in race one and two sixth-place finishes in race two and three.

In the Ken Hall MX Trophy, held at Manor Farm, Petersfield (Langrish MCC), on the Sunday of the bank holiday weekend, three good race results were enough to give Daryl Hall second place overall in the super evo class.
