I would like to start a conversation about the Island Classic and potential sidecar teams coming over. Max Hooper and myself have been banging on about sidecars for a long time, this tear with Tim Reeves and the inclusion of the F2 outfits we had great racing from a spectators point of view.
Max explained he has spoken with Tim and the Island management about encouraging some machines to come out.
I have no authority to speak on behalf of the Island Classic management, but as Chairman of the Historic Management Committee, one of my roles is to promote Historic racing.
We have some ideas about encouraging some Classic machines from the 1970-80's eras of sidecar racing to 'come on down'. We run mainly japaneses engines here, and we think some of your car engine powered and BSA , BMW twin or triple cylinder machines would be much something special.
At this stage, we are looking to see what would be available to come out, Max intends to discuss things with Tim, via email, and if anybody has a better ideas, let me know and we can include that.
We have limited grid numbers, 30 available, and I personally would expect up to 6 sidecars would be welcomed from UK or Europe.
I would expect this post to be moved to a better location, I started it here because of the results being listed. Regards to all
