Ten Rounds, a brand-new Sidecar Revival event and increased opportunities for 600's in 2018.

 

At a meeting last week, the organisational team headed by Roger Body arrived at the final framework for the championship going into the 2018 season.   

A ten round championship is planned, nine of which will again be alongside the British Superbike Championship, with a tenth round to be stand-alone at the famous Cadwell Park circuit over the weekend of 23/24th June.

 

This event will be known as “The Sidecar Revival” with a full programme featuring Sidecar Grand Prix Legends, sidecar classics, F2 outfits and a line-up of interesting solos.

The chance to see the likes of Steve Webster, Steve Abbott, Rolf Biland and Alain Michel back on track will indeed be one to relish.

The event will contain three Hyundai Heavy Industries Championship races.

Ryan Crowe with passenger Harry Payne completed a relatively successful season in 2017 competing in the Bemsee club sidecar races plus Aintree and some races on home tarmac at Jurby.

Ryan, 21, eldest son of TT specialist Nick Crowe continued with the Triumph 675 Daytona R engine this season and although he had some reliability issues recorded some respectable results including a win, six second and three third places in the Bemsee club and a sprinkling of top 10 results at Aintree.

The seventh and final round of the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building services F350 / Post Classic and Preinjection sidecar championship moves to Cadwell Park, as part of the Auto 66 Club's “Sidecar Bash” meeting which has attracted an entry of almost one hundred sidecars.

Always with an eye to the future, Roger Body and his RKB-F1 organisational team are working hard to ensure that Hyundai Heavy Industries British Sidecar Championship continues to evolve and grow.
The thinking has always been to have the FIM World Championship, and the leading National Championships, of which the British is without doubt the strongest, to be aligned with similar, if not identical rules and operational format.

The culmination of the 2017 season was every bit as exciting as it might have been. A record entry of almost forty outfits, subject to one or two late cancellations, would guarantee a packed grid for both races, with world class former champions mixing it with young hopefuls and established championship regulars.

 

Tim and Tristan Reeves came to Brands seeking an unblemished clean sweep of all twenty races over the season, whilst newly crowned world champions Ben and Tom Birchall were within touching distance of the British 600cc Cup Crown, to add their FIM Gold Medal.
