AFTER AN AMAZING WEEKEND at Brands Hatch last weekend with the RKB-Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship in conjuction with the British Superbike Championship (BSB) culmanating with a strong 7th place in the first race held in the dry - and a reasonable 13th place in the re-run race 2 held in very slippy conditions . Yangi19Motorsport Change disciplines for this coming weekend.

Jed Pilmoor-Brady (sidelined for Brands and very abely deputised by Jonny Allum) returns for the Team's first attack of the National Hill Climb Association's ( Championship 2018 at Gurston Down near Salisbury.

Having narrowly Won the Sidecar Class by just 2 points and finishing 13th overall in the Combined National Hill Climb Championship last year, Ian and Jed are keen to keep up a good pace this year, although they wont be competing all rounds.


Competition at Gurston will be strong in the Sidecar Class. Last year's Championship runners up Simon Foster & Jayne Foster should have their new chassis more sorted although they are still relying on 600cc Power. 3rd overall Last season Kev & Sara Dewell retain their home built chassis - a cross between a short F2 and LCR Steering/Suspension fitted with a Honda VRF 800 V4 engine that pulls strong up the hills.

Rodney Thorne and Kevin Young start their 2nd full season on the 600cc machine..... whilst Rod still switches 3 wheels for 4 wheels for his 5litre V8 Can-Am style Pilbeam ...sometimes peddling both AT THE SAME EVENTS!!!


Former Champions and Multiple Record Holders Paddy & Paul Keates also make their return to Gurston after loosing a few Hill Records to the yangi19 motorsport team last year. with Newer, much lighter, Bodywork and a renewed entusiasm, the pair on their R1 Powered Baker Tubilar F1 machine will be a force to be reconned with all season!
