F1 SIDECAR duo Ben Bygrave and Sam Ryder, from Long Stratton, have moved up to seventh place in the British F1 Championship.

This is their first season in the British Championship and they are beginning to create quite an impression, having gained points in all three rounds so far this season and are certainly putting Norfolk on the map in the world of sidecar racing.

F1 SIDECAR duo Ben Bygrave and Sam Ryder, from Long Stratton, have moved up to seventh place in the British F1 Championship.

This is their first season in the British Championship and they are beginning to create quite an impression, having gained points in all three rounds so far this season and are certainly putting Norfolk on the map in the world of sidecar racing.

Their results at Cadwell two weeks ago where they gained a further 24 points also saw them receive the best performance of the day salver.

In the FSRA Championship, for newcomers to the British series, Bygrave and Ryder currently stand in second place only 27 points behind the first place team.

Having gained 46 points with a first and two third-place finishes at Cadwell, B and S Racing will be looking for another successful weekend at Snetterton, their local track, next weekend which could see them as serious contenders to take the pole position.
