Hannafin Formula 1 Sidecar Racing Team –
Rupert Archer – Driver and Steve Thomas – Passenger
Good start to the year.
First round of the season was at Oulton Park where Rupert and Steve finished in the top five.
They then went on to compete in rounds at Snetterton, Thruxton and Mallory Park – again all good with top five finishes.
Rupert and Steve competed at Donnington Park in September 2016.
Having got of to a great start on the Saturday finishing fourth, they were good and ready to go out again on the Sunday morning.
On completing two laps of the first race they were then in a collision with another sidecar competitor, ending in Rupert sustaining injuries which cost him a couple of days stay at hospital.
Steve escaped with only bruising.
Due to the injuries sustained by Rupert Archer at Donnington Park it then meant he was unable to compete in the next round at Assen.
Rupert is now on the mend and hoping to be fit and well enough to take part in the last race of the season at Brands Hatch in October
Rupert and Steve finished 6th overall in the F1 British Sidecar Chamionship 2016.
