In 2010 the Team Lick Racing bike was a Formula 2 Baker Thundercat from 1990s.  With a light chassis the bike was manoeuvrable and held good corner speed, but without fuel injection and  modern engine developments it lagged behind the opposition on sheer power (output approx 85-90bhp).  Dean spent the season ironing out various inherited gremlins on and in the bike, including changing to a dry sump.

Despite only pairing up mid-season and suffering a host of mechanical gremlins throughout the year, Dean and Anne finished 8th in the North Glos F2 sidecar championship in 2010.

For the 2011 season Dean and Anne pooled their resources to commission a brand-new Lumley F2 outfit with Kawasaki engines which saw them climbing their way up the North Gloucestershire and Bemsee championship tables.  They achieved 3rd place in both championships after a long and gruelling season, having knocked seconds off their best lap time and learned invaluable race-craft.  Their first international race, at Mondello in August 2011, marked the beginning of their future ambitions. In 2012 they took the great step of competing at British level in the ACU/FSRA British FII Sidecar championship.
