RKB-F1 Motorsport in conjunction with MSV is in the advanced planning stages of a two-day open test programme exclusively for sidecars. Circuits under consideration will be Snetterton or Donington, and the timing is likely to be mid-April, possibly during the week immediately after Easter.

In order to assess interest and viability, all sidecar teams, whether they be British Championship, Club level, F1, F2 or Classic, are invited to respond and participate.
