Two races at Oulton Park to get the British Championship season under way, June 25-27

The weekend of June 25-27 sees Oulton Park host the opening round of 2021 as per the published schedule.

In previous years, the constraints placed on the circuit by reduced track time have meant that the sidecars have been allocated just the one race. This has been unpopular, but also recognised as unavoidable.

Roger Body has been lobbying hard over this particular sticking point and his efforts have finally paid off.

The Oulton Park opener will now feature two sidecar races, thereby getting the season away to a meaningful haul of points for the championship hopefuls. This is due solely to Roger’s efforts and a large degree of cooperation from Stuart Higgs and the MSVR organisation.

The 2021 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship Incorporating The F2 Cup Round Two – Donington Park – N.G.R.R.C.

The opening round of the A.C.U. / F.S.RA. British F2 Sidecar Championship was held at Brands Hatch over the weekend of the 17th and 18th April. The unseasonably warm weather was matched by the red hot pace at the front of the field, where Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie (LCR Suzuki) took pole, a double win and equalled the long standing lap record.

The Super F2 podium was completed on both occasions by runners-up Sean Hegarty / James Neave (Baker Honda) and Steve and Matty Ramsden (LCR Honda). Quite a talking point was the brace of fourth places taken by former champions Gary Horspole / Kenny Cole (Shelbourne Honda), proving older carburetted outfits are still more than capable in the right hands. These teams have firmly established themselves at the top of the table, and have a very solid foundation on which to base their championship aspirations going forward.

The 2021 F.S.R.A. Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship

Round 2 Mallory Park May 3rd  2021

Report —- Dave Tibbles

Photos —- Neil Kirkby

A wet Mallory did not dampen the spirits of the Pre-injection teams participating in the FSRA Wintec Championship bank holiday Monday meeting. With a full grid of sidecars with over two thirds of the grid being Pre-injection teams it was two wins out of two for both Rob Fisher/Sarah Stokoe F2 class and Simon Horton/Jordon Forrest in the F1 class. In the rain and windy conditions Fisher with new passenger Sarah Stokoe on his Baker 600 Yamaha not only won the Pre-injection F2 class but took the chequered flag in front of the more modern machined club racers in both races.

Powerhouse F2 at Brands Hatch

From Powerhouse F2 Racing on Facebook here – give them a follow!

A weekend of two halves at brands hatch this weekend. The team travelled to Brands Hatch on Thursday evening filled with nerves, brought on from the relay problems uncovered at mallory park the week before.

Friday began with the arrival of our data analyst, Adam Christie, keen to help the team extract the full potential out of the weekend.

Fortunately, our first few laps of Friday practice were filled with relief as the bike decided to play ball and the problems from the weekend before had been corrected. General acclimatisation with the new fairing for brian and Matt, accompanied with set up tweaks were the story for Friday’s two sessions.
