BEMSEE - 2010 Logo - WEB

I'm sad to report that we have too few interested parties to make this event viable.
With the lack of entries we are taking the decision to cancel this event.

Bemsee will still have it's annual CTC Course at Brands on 18th February, so new sidecar passengers looking to get their licences for 2017 can apply for that.
The Club will also be running its usual Friday testdays for Sidecar testing in the afternoon in front of each meeting this season.

First up will be Brands testing on Friday 10th March, entry will be available online at bemsee.net from the first week of February

Good evening all. 

Apologies for the messing about and a word of advice to other site admin people.. when you're told not to delete the config.php file there is a good reason for it. 


... it does look slightly different but works pretty much the same way as it did.

The update I was going to do hasn't happened yet. 

A week before the event it was doubtful we’d even attend, while doing the last Friday practice of the year the rear axle snapped as we changed the wheel and torqued it up.
Straight to the engineer and it was “about 2 days and $1000”, a post on the best UK sidecar site resulted in nothing and it was only when LP racing came to the party with a spare which they sent down to us meant we were back in with a chance.
Checked for straightness and then crack tested to be on the safe side along with a bunch of measurements as it was from a latter model and it was all looking good.

Pembrey is having some adjustments made over winter, in the shape of two new chicanes. One is just before the esses and one before the kink on the back straight. By the way if you go through that kink and get nudged slightly after it's been raining, you can go a long way across the grass there before you sink about a foot into the marsh. 

More news on the updates to Pembrey on their own website here
