The vastly experienced Simon Gilbert and Carl Morgan will make a return to top-flight sidecar racing action in 2018 under the Draper Racing banner.
Draper Racing, under Team Manager Bill Philp, himself a former sidecar racer, currently fields Aaron Clarke in National Superstock 600, and Bill's son Tommy in the British Supersport Championship.

The ultra-fast Thruxton circuit is always a great leveller, and particularly hard on passengers with its never-ending right handed bends. Three races on the programme would put seventy-five points on the table, but as events turned out, things did not go to plan.

The fifth round of the F.S.R.A. / Lane Building Services F350 / Post Classic and Pre-Injection Sidecar Championship heads to East Fortune in Scotland this coming weekend (12th & 13th August). There are four championship races over the weekend, with full grids and reserves at this popular circuit in East Lothian, organised by the Melville Motor Club.

Lee Crawford and Scott Hardie enjoyed a welcome upturn in fortunes at Cadwell Park in the fifth round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship, following a visit to Anglesey for round four the previous weekend which had proved somewhat frustrating. Their team mates, John and Jake Lowther had a more productive trip to North Wales, but less so at their "home circuit" in Lincolnshire.

The fourth round of the 2017 A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship took place this past weekend after an eleven week break, on the 1.55 mile coastal circuit of Anglesey. This round would see the F2 Cup championship lead change hands and mixed fortunes for Peter Founds / Jevan Walmsley.

T.L. - I know this may seem a bit "premature" given the race report from Anglesey has yet to be published. However, with tight programme deadlines to work to, Mark had to write a piece prior to round four, due to there being "back to back" championship events on consecutive weekends.

 

Welcome to the preview for the fifth round of the A.C.U./F.S.R.A. Formula 2 British Sidecar Championship in conjunction with our series sponsors for this year: ARC Newton Aycliffe, Lockside Engineering, Yorkshire Engine Supplies, Whitby Cottages, Pagid Racing and from the Isle of Man A.V. Craine and Sons. From all the registered competing teams and members of the F.S.R.A. a big thank you for your continuing support.

 

The Club plans to run Sidecar Taxi rides during the lunch periods over both days at our Brands Hatch Indy meeting on 26-27th August.

Funds raised are in support of the BMCRC Benevolent Fund.

Sidecar riders are invited to offer their outfits in support over both days.

(You can bring a machine to do the Taxi Rides - even if you are not entering the meeting). There will be a limit of 40 passengers each lunchtime so be quick registering.

Sleaford sidecar driver Gary Horspole with Scottish passenger Jimmy Connell were at Brands Hatch at the weekend to contest the two races in round six of the British F1 Sidecar championship where they recorded an eighth and 10th place to their races which move them up to sixth in the rider standings on 80 points.

Round Six - Brands Hatch - July 21-23, 2017

The mid-summer round on the Brands GP circuit was, as expected, drama packed and fiercely contested.

Practice and qualifying were both sun-kissed, with the track in perfect condition. Tim and Tristan Reeves, the former nursing severe bruising after the well-documented Southern 100 crash the previous weekend, were again in brilliant form on their local circuit. From the word go, at near-lap record pace, they laid down a marker on the Carl Cox Motorsport Kawasaki and then sat back.

SaS East Fortune 350px

Husband and wife Sidecar racing team Giles and Jen Stainton from Upton made a late decision to travel north to East Fortune for a change of venue and opponents at the weekend resulting in three top 10 finishes to their races.

Jen said: “We made a quite late decision to travel to East Fortune last weekend and the long journey along with a week of engine swapping meant that we were pretty tired when we got there!"
