Shaun Mellows, from Tiptree in Essex, and his passenger, Jason Peters, have been riding at grand prix level for only two years, but are strongly favoured to win for Britain this weekend in the ninth round of the World Sidecar Championship at Langrish, Hampshire. The pair have had good results in previous rounds, but mechanical problems and inexperience have placed them 11th overall in the Championship. Victory would move them to seventh or eighth and, with two rounds to go, they could be in a position to challenge the leader, Eimbert Timmermann, of the Netherlands. A good start will be essential.

How to get there: Waterlooville MC circuit is at Manor Farm, Langrish, Hampshire, which is on the A272 Winchester Road, west of Petersfield. Admission: Tomorrow: pounds 2 adults. Sunday pounds 8 adults. Weekend ticket: pounds 8 adults. Tomorrow qualifying starts at noon. On Sunday, first race of three is at 12.30pm, with three solo support races for the Ken Hall Trophy. Camping available on site over weekend.
