The second round of the A.C.U./F.S.R.A. British Formula 2 sidecar championship took place this past weekend at Cadwell Park, hosted by the Auto 66 Club. With the forecast not looking great - in fact the polar opposite to the previous weekend at Oulton Park - the weather would indeed have an impact on race one.

Team Birchall set the benchmark for the pace when they took a decisive win in the opening round of the FIM World Sidecar championship at Le Mans on Saturday.

The new rules for the world championship meant that all Sidecar teams had to change from 1000cc to 600cc engines.

Having switched to the smaller engine last year Ben and Tom Birchall secured the FIM F2 World Sidecar title, securing pole positions and lap records on their way to the title.



Round One Brands Hatch Indy Circuit 14-17 April

A full grid lined up for the season opener, despite the no-shows of Rob Biggs/Ben Ransley through illness, Brian Gray with work commitments, and a contractual issue with Maria Costello's passenger. An immaculate field of predominantly 1000cc outfits and a handful of 600's made a spectacle to behold as qualifying got under way in dry and breezy conditions, with a track temperature of twenty-four degrees.

Birchall Brothers Rule in Le-Mans.

As the lights went out for the first race of the 2017 “FIM Sidecar World Championship”, it was John Holden and Mark Wilkes on their “Barnes/Sillicon Racing” LCR, Kawasaki who got the hole shot into the first complex of corners, this was to be short lived though as Ben and Tom Birchall on their “Birchall Racing” LCR, Yamaha, nipped up the inside of Holden/Wilkes in the first chicane. Right behind the Birchalls was Pekka Paivarinta and Kirsi Kainulainen on their “44-Racing” LCR, Honda. Paivarinta and Kainulainen tried their best to follow the Birchall Brothers past Holden and Wilkes but it was not to happen. It was not till three corners later that Paivarinta and Kainulainen managed to nip pass when Holden/Wilkes left a small space. By this time Bennie Streuer and Kevin Rousseau on their “Team Streuer” LCR, Honda, were right on the tail of Holden/Wilkes.

Birchall Brothers on fire!

Ben and Tom Birchall will start from pole position with a fastest time of 1:44.474, for the 18 lap race that will kick off the 2017 “FIM Sidecar World Championship”.
Brothers Ben and Tom have been flying since free practice, and their lap times have been getting faster as the weekend has gone on. Their “Birchall Racing” LCR, Yamaha has not missed a beat all weekend. But even as qualifying had finished the team were working on the machine, checking all was okay. Driver, Ben said with a smile on his face. “We will make sure all is well with the bike, and we will see if we can improve our lap time in the race. We are really looking forward to the race tomorrow, and let’s hope all goes well”. They will start from the front row on the outside of the circuit.

Birchall Brothers set the pace.

The sun shone brightly at Le-Mans for the first free practice of the season for the “FIM Sidecar World Championship”Ben and Tom Birchall with their “Birchall Racing” LCR, Yamaha, set the fastest time of 1:45.310. The Brothers had a trouble free practice and were really pleased how things went. With the track in near perfect conditions, and a clear track in front of them, they steadily worked up their speed and with only six laps done they set the fastest time.


The second fastest time went to Bennie Streuer and Kevin Rousseau on their “Team Streuer” LCR, Honda. Streuer and Rousseau did not have any problems throughout the free practice session. But they will be doing some small adjustments to their suspension settings, and they will have some new rubber fitted for the first qualifying session.

The organisers of the Endurance legends race at Donington 6/7 May, just five weeks’ time have invited me to run some Taxi Rides to help raise funds for young Riley Clay who is in a fight for his life against a rare and hard breed of cancer. Some of you will know that Riley is the grandson of Dean Banks , a man who has given a great deal to our sport and has helped me personally and I know helped a lot of you guys too.

The event is a huge draw and a wonderful opportunity to attract sponsors and bring new people into our sport. The organisers have promised me £100 for each outfit to cover fuel etc. I would ask you all to consider giving that £100 to the Riley Clay fund.

The 2017 “FIM Sidecar World Championship” gets under way at the world famous 4,185km “Bugatti Circuit” at Le-Mans, France, over the Easter weekend. The World Sidecars will be supporting the famous “24 Houres Motos” for solo motorcycles.

New rules starting from 2017 means that all the top sidecar teams who were running 1000cc engines had to change to 600cc engines over the winter break. Some teams who ran 600cc engines in short tubular chassis last season have changed to the longer monocoque constructed chassis, but most have just had to change to the 600cc engine.

A week of testing in Val De Vienne in France set F2 Sidecar team Giles and Jen Stainton up for an assault on the Darley Moor championship round last weekend where they scored a fine third and fourth place on Sunday.

Jen said: "We made the decision last season to kick start 2017 with a week at this fantastic circuit in the South of France where teams from across the world gather to test their machines ahead of the new race season.

"With five 20-30 minute sessions each day we managed to run in two engines, learn the track, pick up pace, alter settings on the outfit and build so much as a team."



After what seems to have been a long winter, the wait is over. Next weekend (14-17 April) the Brands Hatch Indy circuit will resonate to the sound of the strongest entry of sidecars in the history of the series. New rules which allow 600cc outfits to compete on level terms with their 1000cc big brothers have proved to be an outstanding success and have attracted unprecedented levels of pre-season registrations.

Further rule changes include a “reverse grid” mechanism which will see the top ten finishers, regardless of capacity, line up for race two in reverse order.
Add to this the fact that the Sunday race will be shown live on Eurosport TV mid-afternoon between the two BSB races, and a maximum number of spectators will therefore witness the action.
