After many years as a successful sidecar passenger at the highest level, Long Sutton’s Scott Parnell has now turned his hand to driving a Formula 2 600 cc sidecar.

The former British champion and Isle of Man TT passenger has recruited 24-year-old passenger Mark Wilks from Brookland in Kent. Last year they competed at club level, winning the Formula Sidecar Racing Association’s newcomers’ award.

This season SMP racing have entered the Formula 2 British Championship and also the British Motorcycle Racing Club sidecar championship.

The team recently made the trip to Brands Hatch for the British round, finishing 16th in the first race and 19th in the second.
