The seventh GP of the 2029 World Sidecarcross Championship was held this weekend at the brilliant track at Kiviõli in Estonia.

The weather was cooler on race day with rain overnight and a strong breeze during the day. It kept the dust under control and was a better temperature for the riders.

In Race 1, Hermans/Musset took the holeshot and held on for a fantastic win. Behind Sanders/Kunnas held second from Dierckens/Bax, with Bax/Stupelis in fourth.

Dierckens/Bax were on top form and blasted past their rivals to take second and then were soon challenged themselves with Bax/Stupelis fighting hard to move into second, but couldn’t catch the leading team.

Dierckens/Bax held third but there were strong challenges from behind. Vanluchene/Van Den Bogaart fought through and pushed hard to blast ahead leaving Dierckens/Bax in fourth with Sanders/Kunnas close behind. Varik/Daiders had a safe race in sixth staying a safe distance ahead of Brown/Chamberlain.

Unfortunately #4 Giraud/Haller had mechanical problems and struggled off the gate. They immediately pulled into the pit box for repairs and were back out before the rest of the pack had completed the first lap, but the problems continued and they retired before the end of the race.

J Brown/Millard had a midfield start and a steady race to take 14th.

Kinge/Gray were behind Giraud/Haller on the start so had a slow getaway but fought through to take three great points.

In Race 2, Dierckens/Bax took the holeshot, there were many teams fighting hard to get past. Vanluchene/Van Den Bogaart tucked into second with Hermans/Musset behind and there was a three-way battle with Hermans/Musset blasting past both teams to grab a second victory.
