    The 2018 F.S.R.A. Annual Dinner and Dance was held on Saturday 24th November at the Radisson Blu East Midlands Hotel, where the prize presentations were made to mark the end of a successful season for both the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship, and the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship. To see a full list of the trophy winners, please click "read more".

    Apologies for the slight delay with this report - slowly drying out (not my drink problems on this occasion - but all the kit clothing and bike etc.)! Well done to the brave that experienced Cadwell’s micro-climate of: rain; snow; sleet; wind – and - more rain! With such adverse weather conditions affecting both days of racing only one race each day could be held. But the good old British spirit and lunacy kept us all going with high levels of morale.

    Daryl Gibson and Ashley Moore, representing "Gibson Racing" have had a remarkable year after joining forces in the spring of 2018. They dominated the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Cup series - taking eleven wins and a further podium place from fifteen starts - winning the championship by an impressive forty four points. They also placed an excellent sixth overall in the "Super F2" category against the more established teams.

  • 2018 has seen six weekends of top quality action from the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship, and hopefully that precedent will continue at this weekend's concluding round, held at the annual "Sidecar Bash". With the title still to be decided, and a potential 125 points to be scored, it is mathematically possible for any one of eight teams to land the championship - although it will take a monumental effort for anyone to displace leaders John Shipley / Milo Ward, who take a fifty one point advantage to Cadwell Park.

    The final round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British Formula 2 Sidecar Championship took place at Oulton Park, and owing to circuit restrictions this was a one day only meeting with North Gloucester Road Racing on Saturday 6th October. With the top two places in the Super F2 Championship already decided - Peter Founds / Jevan Walmsley and Lee Crawford / Scott Hardie respectively - congratulations to both teams - third place was still for the taking with two teams tied, namely John and Jake Lowther and Steve and Matty Ramsden. Also to be decided was the F2 Cup with Daryl Gibson / Ashley Moore leading Ralph Remnant / Sam Tilley by thirty eight points.

    Misfortunes at East Fortune for some saw championship leader board changes, after Simon Horton's Wintec 1100 Suzuki had an excursion to the Scottish countryside in qualifying, ending his racing weekend. This allowed John Shipley / Milo Ward (Ireson 1000 Yamaha) to head the charge against the the fifteen strong grid to earn a maximum sixty points with four wins.

    Apologies for the slightly late report (holiday time!), but what a fantastic Sidecar racing event Donington Park proved to be, with sixty plus outfits at the meeting made up of in excess of twenty British F2’s, similar numbers of Pre-Injection machines and complemented with a handful of club racers.

    The fourth round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British Formula Two Sidecar Championship will be held with the Wirral 100 club this coming weekend at Anglesey. There has been a lengthy break since round three which took place at Mallory Park over the weekend of the 6th and 7th May. This was owing to the start of the road race season for sidecars. There has one less road meeting with this year's programme at Scarborough being cancelled (to date), but there was still the T.T. and the Southern 100 in which many F.S.R.A. teams compete.

    Mallory Park produces a scorcher in more ways than one

    Bank Holiday weekend 6th/7th May saw the third round of the A.C.U./F.S.R. A British Formula 2 sidecar championship at Mallory Park with E.M.R.A the host club in polar opposite weather conditions to the previous weekend at Cadwell Park. With the forecast to be the hottest Early May Bank Holiday on record it would be very tiring for all competitors in the searing heat and two x twenty lap races scheduled.

    Quick update from Dave Tibbles....

    Mixed fortunes for Team ARC and new Championship leaders

    (Steve-E here. Can I just say a public thank you to Mark for these reports and the race results, I don't know how he finds the time to cover everything so well)

    This past weekend 28th/29th April saw the second round of the A.C.U./F.S.R.A British Formula 2 sidecar championship at Cadwell Park with Bemsee the hosting club.

    A few of the registered teams took the opportunity to participate in the Friday afternoon test sessions in what could be considered Lake Cadwell. From around 10am on Friday morning it started to rain and it persisted until late in to Saturday evening.

    This meeting welcomed 2014 British F2 Champion Gary Bryan with Phil Hyde as ballast and two French teams, namely the fastest all female sidecar team in TT history Estelle Leblond & Melanie Farnier and Remy Guignard & Frederic Poux.
