The team arrived Saturday midday and immediately got started on setting up.

The Highbridge Motortech outfit was scrutineered and checked over for Sunday morning’s practice/qualifier at 10am.

Rain was predicted for Sunday so Nicholls and Moore chose to go out on Intermediate tyres for the practice/qualifier and felt it was the wrong choice on circuit, but qualified fourth out of 60 sidecars.

The duo were happy with the position, but knew they had more to give.

For race one they changed to full wets and gave it their all. They had no grip off the start line due to cold tyres and standing water, but soon enough the QEH Systems backed outfit got away.

After lap three they moved to third place, but after lap five slipped back to fourth and finished respectively.

After race one’s finish it put Nicholls and Moore into the A Final for the last race of the day.

The pair had a fantastic race, going from fourth to third at the Hairpin on the first lap, they managed to pull a gap from fourth and fifth in dreadful conditions and crossed the finish line in third, 13 seconds ahead of fourth.

Nicholls and Moore were ecstatic with the result and it was a fantastic way to round off a very good year.

Nicholls and Moore have bonded extremely well over six month of being together, and look forward to challenge in the 2013 British Championship.
