NORTHWICH rider Pete Founds and his passenger Jevan Walmsley are on course to successfully defend their British F2 Sidecar Championship title.

This follows two great wins, in contrasting circumstances, on the coastal circuit of Trac Mon in Anglesey at the weekend.

In qualifying they secured pole position for race one but Founds did not get off to a great start.

Their title rivals took the lead in the first corner and things stayed that way for around eight laps.

On lap 10, Founds went for a pass on the brakes in Rocket but lost his brakes and ended up pushing himself and the rival Ramsdens wide.

This allowed the third place bike of George Holden and Oscar Lawrence to take the lead.

An angry Founds is always fast and within three laps had reclaimed second, and the lap later he hit the front and pulled away the overtaking being brilliant to watch.

The lads crossed the line to win by two seconds and keep a healthy lead in the championship.

Race 2 on the Sunday saw Founds start in sixth position but he got off to a flyer and was second before the second corner, with Ramsdens in first.

Founds was not hanging around and by the second lap had taken the lead and then streaked away for the weekend's second win.

The lads have a busy August with two rounds to come at Cadwell and the possibility of a Thruxton entry for the British Superbike round.
