From Mark Dibben.

A quick note to let you all know that Stan Dibben, my Father, passed away this evening peacefully with family by his side.

I will write more in the coming days with Dad’s wishes re celebrating his life.

All best in the meantime, and thanks indeed for all the love you have shown him over many, many years,

Sidecar Superprix by Santander Salt

From Mark Walters

Weekending the 17th and 18th of October we will see the second of two “Sidecar Superprix” challenge weekends. The first one in Oschersleben, Germany was the “Sidecar Superprix by Bonovo Action”. This one will be the “Sidecar Superprix by Santander Salt”. This will be at the 2.433 GP circuit of Brands Hatch. These two weekends of sidecar racing have been all down to the hard work and effort by promoters Jurgen Roeder and Roger Body.

Kershaw/Charlwood lead the charge to Knockhill 18-20 September

From Barry Nutley

Knockhill hosts round three of the Molson Group British Sidecar Championship as it welcomes the cream of British talent north of the border over the weekend of 18-20 September. The second of our “non-BSB” rounds will give the sidecars star billing in front of what is always an enthusiastic crowd of fans and supporters.
Lauder’s Steve Kershaw and his new passenger Ryan Charlwood have a slender ten-point lead in the standings after a mixed round two at Snetterton in Norfolk last month.
They are pressed hard in the table by their young team-mate in the Santander Salt camp Todd Ellis, who with regular passenger Charlie Richardson on their Gary Bryan prepared Honda CBR600, gave eight times world champion Tim Reeves a terrific fight at Snetterton.

International Sidecar Superprix to round out 2020

from Barry Nutley

Against a difficult and ever-changing backdrop, and a determination not to allow the COVID-19 pandemic to emerge the winner in 2020, a last-minute deal has given a lifeline to a meaningful and exciting International event to round off the season in style.

A concerted effort between the RKB-F1 Motorsport/Santander Salt, MSVR and a major German commercial partner, has resulted in a two-round, four-race International Sidecar Superprix to run in Germany and the UK.

MoTeC ECU – Know what you are buying

An article from Andrew ‘Angus’ Brooke

MoTeC is a fairly expensive bit of kit, so do your research in what you are buying. I will be telling you rough prices of new kit, and things to keep eye out for with second hand.

THIS IS NOT A SALES PITCH, instead I want to inform. I have no issues with other systems, or second hand kit, but sometimes deals aren’t as good as they appear.

FIM Sidecar World Championship 2020 season cancelled due to COVID-19 pressures

2020 season cancelled due to COVID-19 pressures

It is with heavy hearts and a deep sense of regret that in conjunction with the FIM, the decision has been taken to abort the planned five-round series for the current year.

Despite all our best efforts early in the year negotiating dates and facilitating an on-line entry system, the ever-changing situation between countries, and the various lock-down measures implemented as a result, destroyed any confidence teams and organisers had that travel would be possible, or even predictable.
