Success in FIM Sidecar World Championship08. December 2016 -
A 1-2 for PAGID Racing customers in the FIM Sidecar World Championship: Pekka Päivärinta/Kirsi Kainulainen clinched the world championship title while Tim Reeves/Grégory Cluze were runners-up. In other categories, teams were also successful with PAGID Racing brake performance.
With an advantage of 18 points, Pekka Päivärinta/Kirsi Kainulainen sealed the FIM Sidecar World Championship title. Throughout the season, the Finnish pairing proved to be the most consistent team, finishing on the podium in each of the nine rounds. Their victory at the Pannonia Ring in Hugary at the end of June was a historic one: Kirsi Kainulainen became the first female rider to win a road racing world championship round. Second place in the final championship standings went to British/French pairing Reeves/Cluze.
The success for Päivärinta/Kainulainen was the seventh consecutive world championship title for a team relying on PAGID Racing.
In Sidecar F2 World Trophy, Günther Bachmaier/Manfred Wechselberger finished second. Third place went to Michael Grabmüller/Sophia Kirchhofer.
Fantastic fact: in total, 19 out of 27 sidecars participating in the championship trusted in PAGID Racing brake pads this year.
PAGID Racing customers also had reason to celebrate in the Isle of Man TT Races that rank among the world’s most spectacular competitions for sidecars. In the first race of the Sure Sidecar TT, John Holden/Andrew Winkle claimed victory from Pete Founds/Jevan Walmsley and Alan Founds/Aki Aalto. In the second race, Holden/Winkle finished second while Tim Reeves/Patrick Farrance secured themselves third place.
The international German championship saw Bennie Streuer/Geert Koerts win the overall title. Thus, PAGID Racing has won the championship every year since 2005. The Hyundai Heavy Industries British F1 Sidecar Championship even resulted into a clean sweep of the top three: Ricky Stevens/Ryan Charlwood won from Tim Reeves/Grégory Cluze and Jakob Rutz/Marcel Fries. In the British F1 Sidecar Championship, all the title winners since 2010 have been relying on PAGID Racing brake performance.
