The final round of the British Formula Two Sidecar Championship took place at the 2.2-mile Cadwell Park circuit in north Lincolnshire.

Long Sutton driver Scott Parnell and his passenger Dean Kilkenny made the trip with their 600cc Suzuki powered sidecar looking to continue their good progress in this championship.

With a strong grid and the main championship still to be decided the action would be fast and furious over the two races.

The weather played a part with torrential rain as the pair qualified in a disappointing 22nd place.

The 14-lap race was a much better affair in tricky conditions with the team producing a good 14th place finish in the main championship and a fifth place in the cup competition, which is for the new teams in the series.

The second race was held in near perfect conditions so the pace was much faster.

Settling into good lap times they averaged 74mph, finishing in 16th place.

Parnell was happy with their progress especially after the early season bike problems.

They finished in 20th place in the main championship and seventh in the cup competition, something which Parnell will build on next year. He is now looking forward to the 2015 season where he hopes to continue their end-of-season form.
