This coming weekend (16th and 17th September) sees the final round of the 2017 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship. This will be the third time this season that the teams get to enjoy Cadwell Park. This past weekend saw the pairing of Team Founds Racing Peter Founds / Jevan Walmsley secure the 2017 British Championship defending the title they first won last year, after taking second place in race one and winning the second race. They are now eighty points clear of Team Ramsden Racing's Steve and Matty Ramsden.

We have most of Mark Walters' reports from the weekend to go on here but I want to put the lot in one big round up rather than post each session separate so that will probably go on tomorrow night. 

I just really want to congratulate Ben and Tom, World Champions for 2017. Top job gentlemen and we will get the full thing on here tomorrow I promise! 


Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie, of Team A.R.C., took a clean sweep of F2 wins at Knockhill on the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd September, landing them the inaugural "Marin Cup" title. However, they had no answer to the dominance of top British F1 team, Steve Kershaw / Stuart Clark, who were the overall winners in all four races, taking the prestigious "Jock Taylor Trophy" on home soil.

Team SaS F2 Sidecar racing husband and wife duo of Jen and Giles Stainton recorded a brace of second places in round five of the EMRA sidecar championship at Mallory Park on Sunday.

After taking a much needed weekend off to recharge their batteries and get the handlebars that were broken at Cadwell repaired, the pair from Upton was raring to go and headed out for some practice laps to bed in some new brake pads and Giles to get used to the new handlebars.



Sleaford sidecar driver along with passenger Jimmy Connell were at Cadwell Park for a round of the British F1 Sidecar Championship at the weekend (apologies for the delay posting this - SE)  resulting in a seventh place in race one and a crash in the second affair.

“Championship for the taking”

The fifth and final round of the FIM Sidecar World Championship will take place at the 4.168km circuit of Grobnik in Croatia, just south of Rijeka, just inland from the Adriatic Coast. The anti-clockwise circuit is surrounded with mountains with stunning views all round. The “Automotodrom Grobnik”circuit opened in 1978 and until 1990 the Yugoslavian motorcycle GP was held here.

In the past this round of the FIM Sidecar World Championship has taken place in the month of June, which has been hard on man and machine due to high temperatures. Work on the track surface was due to be undertaken. However this work did not happen, resulting in the later than usual event taking place in September.

Upton sidecar racing husband and wife pairing of Giles and Jen Stainton were at Cadwell at the weekend for their fourth racing weekend in as many weeks where they recorded three top eight results before disaster struck and they were forced to retire when the handlebars snapped on the LCR outfit.

Once qualifying got underway Giles and Jen both realised just how tiring racing every weekend is and it had taken its toll on them as they felt they were not as quick as usual on track.

Unfortunately the sidecar class has been cancelled at this weekend's Auto 66 Cadwell Park event. This is owing to a shortage of entries (despite the club keeping the entries open, as several competitors had stated their intention to enter, but failed to send in paperwork).

The solo and kart classes will still be going ahead as planned.

Please ensure your entries are received for the "Sidecar Bash" with Auto 66 at Cadwell Park on the 28th & 29th October in good time (a.s.a.p.).


The third round of the Marin Cup took place at another busy weekend of racing at East Fortune.

The sidecar entry for the meeting was boosted by the FSRA pre-injection round which had proved a popular addition for this meeting last year. On this occasion, because of the strong Marin Cup entry, it gave the Melville club an organisational headache as the total entry was 31 sidecars (yes, you did read that correctly) and the maximum grid positions allowed is 24. However, the club rose to the occasion and some excellent organising by the clerk of the course, coupled with the support of all the teams, ensured that everyone enjoyed plenty of racing with a full grid in every race.
