Repoer and pictures by Tracy Thacker.
Last weekend was the final GP of the 2019 season, at the Rudersberg track in Germany.
Etienne Bax and Kaspars Stupelis had already secured the championship title, but there were 50 points up for grabs and the rest of top 5 places to be finalised.
Unfortunately, Brett Wilkinson and Ryan Humphrey were not racing as they needed to rest up from injures picked up in France the week before, and there just wasn’t time to recover.
Brown / Chamberlain took an amazing double win, they made it look easy, but their championship position would be dependent on how well their rivals finished.
Bax / Stupelis held the title with their rivals Vanluchene / Van Den Bogaart second, and Hermans / Musset taking the bronze place.
Great news for the British teams with Brown / Chamberlain having such a fantastic day they moved up one place and took fourth in the championship just 15 points ahead of Dierckens / Bax.
There are two British teams in the top ten Stuart’s son Jake Brown with Joe Millard hold a brilliant eighth.
There are two more holding top twenty places with George Kinge / Lewis Gray in seventeenth and Brett Wilkinson / Ryan Humphrey now nineteenth.
Gary Moulds and Australian Brian Anthony had a brilliant end to the season and finished just outside the top twenty.
Now we can’t wait to see what the 2020 holds for the sidecar family, you can be sure it will include many passenger swaps, we will keep you updated on all the latest information.
