Chandlers sponsored duo have successful season
Northchapel based British Sidecar Motocross pair, Team Pannell, are celebrating the end of the 2013 season and, despite being dogged by some technical problems, are delighted with how their races have gone.
The Chandlers Building Supplies sponsored duo, which is made up of brothers Steve and Chris Pannell, finished a fantastic second in the Clubman Championship, one place higher than the 2012 season. The pair suffered some technical problems in the final two races, which effectively cost them the title.
In the tougher British Championship, Team Pannell placed eighth at Wakes Colne, their highest finish in a British Championship race and, overall, ended a very respectable 16th out of 35.
Steve Pannell commented, "We would like to thank Chandlers for their continued 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 need to cut out the costly mechanical problems, as without a doubt, these cost us the Clubman Championship. 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."
Richard Skinner, Commercial Director at Chandlers, said, "A big congratulations to Team Pannell for another great season. The guys work extremely hard and we are delighted to be sponsoring them again for the 2014 season."
