Team Christie Racing – Announcement

2020 ANNOUNCEMENT


We’ve made the decision to remove our entry from the World Championship and continue with the remainder of the British Championship.


Not an easy decision to make but it had to be made.
Next weekend we go to Snetterton for Round 2 with BSB, another circuit we’ve not raced at for a few years, looking forward to getting stuck in!

Cadwell Park delivers great opener as Kershaw/Charlwood maximise

from Barry Nutley

The Cadwell Park circuit hosted a Bemsee Club meeting with the opening British F1 Sidecar round as a central feature. Friday was an open test day, and everyone took advantage of the opportunity to get back in the groove.

Team Ricky & Jonny withdraw from 2020 season.

From Ricky

It is with a heavy heart that our team has taken the decision to withdraw from the 2020 season, due to unforeseen circumstances in the current environment.

As you are aware, this is a situation that has affected many teams across the world. Unfortunately, it has hit us very hard financially and we have no option other than to withdraw.

We would like to personally thank all of our sponsors and team members for all of your continued support.

Ricky and Jonny

It hurts me to write this, especially after the months and months of preparation that we have put in. Unfortunately this can not be helped…nobody anticipated what was going to happen this year!

Ben and Jed

To all of the teams that can make the grid this year, stay safe and we wish you all a successful season.

Hope to see you all in 2021

Gary Bryan appointed Paddock Manager for RKB-F1

from Barry Nutley

When crews arrive at Cadwell Park for the opening round of the 2020 season, there will be a new face responsible for all Sidecar Paddock disciplines and behaviour.

Gary Bryan

The vastly experienced Gary Bryan has enjoyed a long sidecar association, with Isle of Man TT success to his name, as well as F1 and F2 Championship honours.

Stepping back from active short-circuit competition to care-take and manage his stepson Todd Ellis, Gary has accepted the role of Paddock Manager for Roger Body’s RKB-F1 organisation. This wealth of experience, combined with Gary’s “no-nonsense” manner, will be ideally suited to the many challenges facing him on every race weekend

The role has been officially recognised by MSVR with whom he will be working closely on BSB weekends, ensuring the Sidecar fraternity maintains its high standards.

All crews are therefore reminded that Gary is working on behalf of them and the sidecar family in general to maximise and maintain the good reputation we have earned over many seasons.

We all wish Gary all the best in this new venture and give him our total support.

2020 Season finally blasts off at Cadwell Park 8/9th August

from Barry Nutley

August 8/9th will go down in history as the weekend the long wait for British Championship sidecar racing action ended. This has truly been a season to remember for the wrong reasons. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted around the world and decimated sport in general. We are thrilled to be once again able to get outfits on track fighting for the championship albeit in a truncated season.

There have been many changes over the winter months in terms of team line-ups. At the time of going to press, no fewer than ten drivers have a change of passenger. This alone will add spice to what is bound to be an exciting season, and the most high-profile of those is former champion Steve Kershaw who takes on board former double championship winning passenger Ryan Charlwood.

The events calendar has been updated

Due to COVID the calendar for this year changed dramatically. I held back on updating everything until we had a clearer idea of what was going on.

I have now added the World Championship, British Championship, BMCRC, CRMC, EMRA and motoGP dates. There doesn’t seem to be a lot more than that at the moment – I will add the International Trophy Dates over the weekend and I think there are some Scottish dates to add.

As it happens this also coincided with an update to the events calendar system that I use. It looks much better in my opinion and works better on mobiles.

As so many championships have been cancelled I took the liberty of erasing the view by category for now, it takes quite a bit of editing to update and isn’t really necessary. For next year it may make a return.
