At the fifth round of the Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship over the weekend of 8/9 th July, more than eighty sidecar fans and “would-be passengers” tried the ultimate sidecar experience as they rode in the sidecars of top-flight championship
At £20.00 for two laps, crews were kept busy for one hour each day ferrying the excited passengers round the 1.3 mile Mallory Park circuit.
The total money raised was Two Thousand and Twenty Pounds, an astonishing display of generosity by the sidecar fraternity.
There are a number of channels by which to contribute to the Grenfell Tower fund, and the money has been donated through the “Just Giving” option on Facebook.
The fund is to assist those poor unfortunates who have not only lost everything they own in the tragic fire, but in many cases family members too.
Roger Body of RKB-F1 personally took part in the initiative and said “There are so many worthy causes out there, but we felt that this particular need was both desperate and timely. We are very pleased to offer some small comfort to those poor people affected”.
The final total of £2020.00, will be put to good use, and will assist in whatever way the fun sees fit.
RKB-F1 would like to thank Mallory Park and all the contributing sidecar drivers for their support.
