The two-day test session organised by Roger Body and RKB-F1 Motorsport at the Snetterton 300 circuit attracted a good following from the Molson Group F1 Championship with fifteen outfits signing on Saturday morning.
There was also a fair gathering of club and classic machinery, whilst the F2 outfits were conspicuously absent.

The 2021 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship Incorporating The F2 Cup

Preview Round One – Brands Hatch Indy – N.G.R.R.C. Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th April

This is the first visit to Brands Hatch by the F.S.R.A. for seven years, last playing host to the season opening meeting in 2014. On that occasion the Super F2 wins were shared by Conrad Harrison / Lee Patterson, and the late, great Ian Bell and his son, Carl. The F2 Cup spoils were taken respectively by Dean Lindley / Rob Bell, and Alan Founds / Tom Peters. The latter crew went on to dominate the Cup in spectacular fashion, finishing every one of their eight races, scoring four wins and four runners-up placings. In 2015, the same combination went on to win the overall Super F2 category, before moving to the F1 series. However, it gives the F.S.R.A. great pleasure to welcome Alan back for the 2021 season, with his regular passenger Jake Lowther (LCR Yamaha).
