The waiting is over, and we are a matter of a week or so away from the new British Sidecar Championship season. The Molson Group have once again pledged their support, and now in their fifth year of involvement, have assumed full title sponsorship.
The new season is full of promise, as all the teams are now under the new “ 600cc rule ” which will see a much more level playing field and closer racing.
Now aligned to the FIM World Championship, the 600cc formula is irrespective of chassis style, and is therefore open to long and short outfits alike. This will greatly simplify the sport, and get us back to the concept of “sidecar racing” regardless of configuration.
It will also allow those teams who regularly compete on the roads, to have the odd short circuit outing by way of preparation if they so choose.

A message from Shaun Parker.. 

"My driver for the TT has lost his main sponsor so cant compete this year due to lack of funds. If there is anyone looking for a passenger please pm me"

Birchall Racing have enjoyed a strong opening round to the 2019 FIM Sidecar World Championship held at Le Mans, France, finishing fourth and claiming valuable championship points. Despite an issue slowing their pace in the latter stages of the race, the team came away from the meeting having set the fastest time in every session, including a new race lap record.

Teams were blessed with glorious sunshine for the entire weekend at round one of this year’s Sidecar World Championship, held in conjunction with the famous Le Mans 24-Hour motorcycle race. As such, the grandstands were packed with spectators and the sidecar crews put on a great show to the delight of the 1,000s of fans.

The opening races of the 2019 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship were held at a chilly Snetterton 200 over the weekend of 13th and 14th April. Results throughout the event saw a regular theme, as champions of the last three seasons – Pete Founds / Jevan Walmsley – took pole, two wins and shaved a huge 1.9 seconds off the previous lap record. Their intentions to land an unprecedented fourth championship title could not be clearer!

Update issued by The Aintree Motor Cycle Racing Club

Further to the announcement already issued by the club via the Aintree website.

The problem we have had is due to the fact that the ACU has not issued the club with a track certificate and permits required for us to race in 2019. These were applied and paid for in December 2018 at which time the regulations and entry forms were submitted for approval.

Eventually, after many phones call the ACU organized an independent track inspection - this took place on the 26th March 2019, leaving us insufficient time to implement the various safety measures highlighted in the report. The main problems are the provision of a substantial amount of additional protection and the deteriorating track surface. Resolution of both issues is currently being investigated by the committee and directors of the club. Thank you to all the club members for your continued patience and offers of help it is well appreciated. We will update you as soon as we have any further information.

"We currently aren’t allowed to enter Oulton Park 27th April as they are massively over subscribed way before closing date!
As you can imagine I’m gutted because this is a championship round for us.
If your entered but not planning on doing it please let me know"

Further to the recent announcement on the partnership between Roger Body's Santander Salt organisation and Rob Winfield's TAG Racing team, the new livery was revealed at a press launch recently.
Chris Walker and Tom Christie had a successful test together at the Val de Vienne circuit in March and are raring to get to grips with the TAG Racing Santander Salt Yamaha LCR.
The new livery looks stunning on the sidecar outfit and will be a distinctive force both visually and in competition.
Roger Body is really pleased with the new venture and cannot wait for the first outing.

With the opening round a matter of five mouth-watering weeks away, The Molson Group have confirmed their ongoing support as title sponsor for the coming season.

The opening round of the 2019 F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship took place on Sunday 7th April at Mallory Park. Both races were dominated by former champions, Rob Fisher / Rick Long, returning to the series following an absence of almost two full seasons. However, impressing greatly was sixteen-year-old Matthew Sims, taking a fine third place in the Trophy race as passenger to Hayley Christie in his first competitive outing.

The 2019 F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship kicks off next Sunday (April 7th) at Leicestershire's Mallory Park circuit. This biggest change to this increasingly popular series is that following discussions and a vote at the A.G.M. last November, is that there are now two distinctive “classes” within the championship.
