Do you have a sidecar running with carburettors and want to race with like-minded enthusiasts? If so, the F.S.R.A. Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship may be the place for you.

The championship is held over eight rounds at six different circuits, which this year includes a round at the prestigious “International Sidecar Revival” meeting at Cadwell Park in August.

The rules are very simple – three wheels with period engines and chassis. The championship is divided into two classes: F2 for 350cc two strokes and 600cc four strokes, and F1 for all other engines up to 1300cc.

So far this year eighteen teams nationwide have registered – if you are interested or would like more information, please contact:

Possible 2 day test at Blyton Park

Simon Gilbert is trying to get a list together of sidecar teams who would take part in a 2 day test at Blyton Park (near Gainsborough) end of February/early March.

Simon would have to hire the circuit and get everyone to share the cost – so is looking for at least 10 teams for both days to get the cost down to 300 for the weekend, the more people go the cheaper it will get. This is comparable to a club meeting entry price but of course a load more track time, basically open circuit.

The date is not set yet, this is to gauge interest so speak to Si and when he has a few people interested he will work everything out. You can find more details of Blyton Park on their website, click the logo below.
