NORTHCHAPEL based British Sidecar Motocross pair, Team Pannell, are celebrating the end of a successful 2013 season.

Despite being dogged by some technical issues, they are delighted with their races, having also competed at the British Championships.

The duo, made up of brothers Steve and Chris Pannell, finished a fantastic second in the Clubman Championship, one place higher than the 2012 season.

They suffered technical problems in the final two races, which effectively cost them the title.

Steve said: “We would like to thank our sponsors Chandlers Buildings Supplies for their support, it really does help to ensure that we can continue to race.

“Our speed and jumping has improved this year and our overall race craft is getting better.

“We are now looking forward to the 2014 season and would ideally like to race abroad next year by trying to enter a few World Grand Prix races.”
