Motorcycle News (UK) - - Sport -

Five-time Bri­tish side­car cham­pion Tim Reeves has con­firmed he’ll re­turn to the Hyundai Heavy In­dus­tries Bri­tish F1 Side­car se­ries this year and has re­cruited his brother, Tris­tan, to jump in the chair.

The Reeves broth­ers last raced to­gether in 2013, when they won the Bri­tish ti­tle, be­fore Tris­tan opted to take a sab­bat­i­cal due to work com­mit­ments. The duo will race un­der the Carl Cox Mo­tor­sport ban­ner in Cox’s ZX-10R pow­ered LCR F1 out­fit at the Bri­tish rounds and are fully com­mit- ted to re­claim­ing the do­mes­tic crown.

“There’s loads of top com­pe­ti­tion and we’re so fired up for this year. It’s great to be back with Tris­tan,” said Reeves.

“We’ve just got back from test­ing in France and were well un­der the cir­cuit record and I’ve got to say this is the best out­fit I’ve ever had so it’s mega to be re-united with it!”

The Bri­tish Side­car se­ries gets un­der­way at Brands Hatch this week­end with a packed en­try join­ing the Reeves broth­ers in­clud­ing twice-cham­pi­ons Ricky Stevens and Ryan Charl­wood and for­mer BSB star Chris Walker, who is once again joined by Ashley Hawes. They have their eyes set on their first vic­tory in the class this year.

‘We’re so fired up to be back to­gether this year. Our out­fit’s mega!’
