Avon Tyres to support all rounds again in 2020

We are delighted to have the ongoing support of Avon Tyres our approved tyre supplier for the revised 2020 season. The relationship with Avon is well established, and they are a vital component in sidecar racing worldwide.

The opening round at Cadwell Park is the first time we will see our friendly Avon colleagues and at every round thereafter.

We are, however, anxious to make all teams aware that for the Knockhill date (September 19/20) the large Avon truck will not be heading North. They will service our needs from a smaller vehicle carrying a representative supply but will not have unlimited stock on board.

Teams are therefore advised to consider their potential needs and maybe make use of the large Avon stock at the preceding round at Snetterton BSB.

Not long to wait now boys and girls, Cadwell Park approaches.

British F1: 2020 Cadwell Park opening action just four weeks away

Despite the ravages of the COVID-19 crisis, the British Championship season WILL get underway at Cadwell Park over the weekend of 8/9th August.

This is not the Revival as we know it, but nonetheless there will be two sessions for classic and older outfits. This is still very much a sidecar festival, although with a different feel.

Nothing is normal right now, but we are all determined that life will be as close to normal as we can possibly make it.

It is therefore vital that we have full grids for our opening round, and as such, all British Championship competitors are urged to get their entries in as soon as possible.

Given the uncertainty over recent months, and the extraordinary lengths we have gone to in order to produce a series, it is now the turn of the teams to demonstrate their commitment and sign up for the season.

We are in negotiation with Eurosport to screen a highlight show for the event, and as the opening round of our series, that is important.

So, in summary, whether you are a regular British Championship team, or a classic or period sidecar team, we would like to see your entries.

New schedule is :-

8-9 August Cadwell Park

21-23 August Snetterton

19-20 September Knockhill

2-4 October Donington Park

16-18 October Brands Hatch

We’ll see you all at Cadwell – and stay safe.

Update from Bemsee

We’ve mentioned before….as things stand today for us nothing has particularly changed – the next key date is July 4th when ACU race permits may become available to Clubs, in line with current government plans. For things to get back to some normality the government would need to release the restriction on overnight camping. That’s a key component in Clubs being able to arrange events over more than 1 day.
