Qualifying Report: Sidecarcross GP 9 Strassbessenbach – Germany

Two exciting qualifying races on the brilliant natural GP track in Germany, and this week the weather that was variable all day from rain showers to hot sun.

In group A Keuben/Roes took the holey, with Varik/Daiders second from Cuche/Anthony.

From behind Bax/Stupelis quickly blasted ahead and within a few laps had taken the lead, holding on for a good win and first pick of the start line for the GP races.

Keuben/Roes were determined and worked hard to stay in second but Varik/Daiders fought for the whole race and finally got their reward as they got ahead in the last two laps.

Hermans/Musset were fourth but pulled out with mechanical problems and had to qualify in the last chance, so a second row start for race day.

Cuche/Anthony had a great start and qualified easily just behind the new pairing of Willemsen/Badaire.

None of the British teams had a good start but J Brown/Millard worked hard to take 10th.

Foden/Bijenhof have taken a reserve place in the last chance race, but Osbaldiston/Cooper just missed out.

In group B Dierckens/Bax bagged the holey and there was no stopping them as they blasted through to a great win.

Vanluchene/Van Den Bogaart quickly settled into a safe second place with Brown/Chamberlain third and a front row start in the GP races.

Compalati/Chopin were in good form holding fourth place but they were eventually passed by Veldman/Janssens.

Both Kinge/Gray and Wilkinson/Humphrey had to fight back from a bad start but they did it in style, gradually passing their rivals to take ninth and 10th.

So five British teams qualified for the GP races and only one on the front row it will be interesting racing.

Bax/Stupelis will work hard to hold the championship lead and the red plate – expect to see some good battles.
