Then the founds brothers on four and five, so Alan Founds and Jake Lowther on four, then Peter Founds and Jevan Walmsley. Tim Reeves and Mark Wilkers were six.

In the opening rounds the Brichalls managed to reach 115,965 mph and drove a lead of 12 seconds to Holden / Cain. Molyneux / Syle were on three, Founds / Lowther only 1.6 seconds behind. Reeves / Wilkers could point Founds / Walmsley to six.

Even on the second round, the Birchalls did not let go. At each measuring point, they were able to further expand their leadership. After the round, it was clear, new round record with 117.119 mph. That was the first 117 mph round for the sidecar at all.

Holden / Cain were 25 seconds behind, but also had an advantage of 7.6 seconds on Molyneux / Sayle.

Between Molyneux / Sayle and Founds / Lowther it was once again scarce. Especially since Sayle was injured on the ribs during the race, but they could save themselves on the podium.

Reeves / Wilkes were fifth ahead of Founds / Walmsley and Harrison / Winkle

In the third round there was still an incident at Ramsey Hairpin because of drizzle. A side car came too close to the spectators. No one was injured. The restricted area is now expanded there.
