Their victory for their respective championship also managed to seal the F2 title and they were elated on the podium to secure the title. This would be the fourth championship in a row for Alton and the third for Clancy.

Alton and Clancy sharing at the podium; “Thank you very much to those who have put together our sidecar motor and Horsell Consulting for sponsoring the round. I would also like to thank Graeme and Jarrod for pushing us all the way.”
