It was another clean sweep for Simon Horton in the penultimate round of the Wintec/FSRA Pre-Injection F1 sidecar championship.

Newark sidecar driver Horton, with passenger Jordan Forrest, of Misterton, won all four races at the East Fortune race circuit in Scotland to extend their championship lead.

Horton said: “We had a fantastic weekend but in the last race we were down on power due to an exhaust pipe coming loose so we had to nurse the outfit home, although we still managed to lap our closest rivals for the title.

Passenger Forrest said: “It was another new track for me to learn and I did have a few moments but I loved the racing as usual.

“I want to thank all who follow and support us and also our sponsors.”

The first two races were run on Saturday with Horton/Forrest taking a resounding win in the opener with a 24.2s advantage over Burns/Winfrow, with nearest rivals for the championship Tibbles/Greenwood coming home in third place.

The second race was run over six laps and resulted in an identical result for the top three outfits.

Horton/Forrest secured their third win of the weekend in Sunday’s first race while in the final race they made it four out of four with Burns/Winfrow in second place and Tibbles/Greenwood taking third place after being lapped by the Newark team.

With the points accrued at East Fortune, WINTEC Racing now have 240 points going into the final round at Anglesey this Saturday (racing over two days).

Tibbles/Greenwood sit second, 42 points behind the Newark pairing.
