RKB-F1 Motorsport in conjunction with the Federation Internationale de Motocyclisme is delighted to announce an additional round to the published provisional calendar.
Agreement has been reached with the WorldSBK promoter, Dorna WSBK Organisation (DWO), to include the FIM Sidecar World Championship on the same bill at the FIM Superbike World Championship at Donington Park over the weekend of 2-4th July.
This represents a major breakthrough and is the culmination of extensive discussions between the three parties which began early last year.It has always been the intention to return the sidecar class to the standard of event it deserves, and this is yet another massive step in that direction.
In today’s world, where the spectator experience is ever-more demanding, sidecars provide a colourful and exciting addition to any race weekend, and this move allows trackside and television audiences alike to witness yet another dimension of World Championship racing.
Thanks are also extended to the Auto Cycle Union and Motorsport Vision for their contribution in this exciting venture.
