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.

Road racing legend John McGuinness will contest the 2020 Isle of Man TT and International North West 200 road races for Quattro Plant Bournemouth Kawasaki with the Morecambe rider having signed a deal today (Friday) to ride for Pete Extance’s British Superbike Championship-winning team.
In Bruce’s words.. As you may have seen Richie Lawrence had an unfortunate mishap at Wanganui street race in NZ on Boxing Day. Unfortunately due to the nature of his injuries he hasn’t got enough recovery time to be fit for the Isle of Man TT.
He is however coming over to support and mechanic our team.
We have had a message from Bill at TTRacepics.com –
We have thousands of sidecar images from 1923 to date within our collections, health issues mean I am a bit land-locked these days so adding more pictures every day. Happy to seek out any pics of riders, passengers, bikes etc. In addition, I would would like to find as many passenger christian names to make the Manx National Heritage Database as clean as possible.
