Reeves and Farrance team up again and target Isle of Man TT Races wins
Reigning World Sidecar Champion Tim Reeves is gearing up for his assault on the 2015 Isle of Man TT races fuelled by Monster Energy and having gained additional support from sponsors including Isle of Man based telecoms company Sure, he is confident of adding to the single TT win he took in 2013.
Driving under the AOS/Team E-Aide Motorsport banner, Reeves is reunited with passenger Patrick Farrance for the first time since 2009 and with the Cumbrian having taken three wins with Dave Molyneux in the intervening period, the duo have a great chance of success.
The pairing took a podium on Reeves’ debut in 2008 and with the Kent driver now having stood on the rostrum five times, including the win in the opening race of 2013, they will be one of the favourites for honours in both of this year’s three-lap Sure sidecar TT races.
Reeves will again campaign a DMR Honda this year, although this time the chassis has had a number of modifications to suit his specific requirements with considerable input in the design coming from Dave Molyneux, former World Champion and TT winner Steve Abbott and Bill and Dean Ryde from Metmachex.
Reeves and Farrance recently conducted their first shakedown test of the new outfit at Silverstone, where they were immediately running under the circuit lap record, with further test sessions planned at Aintree and Mallory Park this weekend prior to the opening TT practice session on Saturday 30th May.
“I’ve got the perfect package for this year’s TT and with E-Aide Motorsport and the added support of AOS, Hunts Motorcycles, H&S Contractors and Sure Mobile, I’ll be going into the races in the best possible position. I’m back with Patrick for the first time in six years and everything clicked straightaway at Silverstone. Six years is a long time but it was if it was yesterday as Patrick and I were at home immediately. He’s a class act so I’m delighted to have him back on board whilst the outfit felt really good and was flying.”
Sarah Jarvis, Marketing Manager, Sure said:
“We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting Tim and Patrick at the 2015 Isle of Man TT. We’re trying really hard to raise the profile of sidecar racing through our sponsorship of the races and who better to be involved with than the reigning World Champion. We’ve worked with Patrick before and know him well and we’re really excited about his and Tim’s prospects this year so, hopefully, they can be victorious this year.”
