North Kelsey sidecar driver Todd Ellis and passenger Charlie Richardson were competing at Thruxton at the weekend in the seventh round of the British Sidecar championship where they recorded two fourth places and picked up 26 points in the main championship and a brace of third places in the 600 cup to pick up 32 points to retain their lead in that championship.

F1 Sidecar driver Gary Bryan from North Kelsey and passenger Phil Hyde rode to three top six places in the three races at Thruxton last weekend picking up a further 34 points to remain in third place in the overall rider standings.

The pair qualified in sixth place to start race one from the third row but were unable to make any progress towards the front of the field and remained in a strong sixth place throughout the eight laps.

Returning to the scene of quadruple victories earlier in the season, the Santander Salt/Express Tyres Kawasaki duo of Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clark are agonisingly close to their first ever British Championship title.
With fourteen victories from the seventeen races run so far, their track record is impressive.
Cadwell Park in Lincolnshire is the scene for round eight next weekend (17-19 August), and is also the scene of a spate of incidents earlier in the year which decimated the field. Several of those crews affected in those crashes have yet to regain financial or physical fitness.
Needing just thirty-two points to become the first Scottish rider to wrap up the title since Jock Taylor, Kershaw will be full of anticipation ahead of Cadwell. Anywhere on the podium in both races will suffice, and that has to be their game plan.

After a lengthy break the fourth round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British F2 Sidecar Championship took place over the weekend of the 28th / 29th July at the British version of Philip Island, namely Ty Croes, Anglesey, on the picturesque coastal circuit.

The fourth round of the A.C.U. / F.S.R.A. British Formula Two Sidecar Championship will be held with the Wirral 100 club this coming weekend at Anglesey. There has been a lengthy break since round three which took place at Mallory Park over the weekend of the 6th and 7th May. This was owing to the start of the road race season for sidecars. There has one less road meeting with this year's programme at Scarborough being cancelled (to date), but there was still the T.T. and the Southern 100 in which many F.S.R.A. teams compete.

After suffering a couple of spins in the opening round of the British F2 Sidecar championship at Croft Team SaS, Giles and Jen Stainton from Upton found they had lost a bit of confidence in their racing and took time out to rediscover their love for the sport.

After a couple of weekends giving taxi rides for the public on the sidecar platform and then taking in a classic meeting at Darley Moor the passion for racing returned and the husband and wife duo travelled to Snetterton in Norfolk to test the outfit and then take part in the two British Championship races where they secured a brace of fifth places in their class.

Snetterton plays host to round three of the championship this coming weekend (16-17th June). Leading the charge into Norfolk are Steve Kershaw and Stuart Clark aboard the Molson Santander Salt 1000cc Kawasaki. They enjoy a twenty-seven point advantage over team-mates Todd Ellis and Chaz Richardson who campaign a 600cc Honda.

 

From Pat Hamblin... 

After discussion with the organisers BMCRC have now re-instated the F2 class into the Sidecar Revival meeting at Cadwell Park on 23/24 June

Initially the class was dropped has there had been no interest however with the cancellation of the Oliver's Mount meeting teams have now shown interest so lets support what should be a chance to mix with the BSB F1 teams and the GP Original solo class. There is good track time and the entry fee is good too, BMCRC membership is included for this round.

Ben and Tom Birchall created history in Friday morning’s second Locate.im Sidecar TT Race at the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races, fuelled by Monster Energy, when they became the first crew to lap the Mountain Course in under 19 minutes as they swept to their second win of the week, also breaking their own race record from Saturday in the process.

The Nottinghamshire brothers overhauled early leaders John Holden/Lee Cain at the end of lap one and with their second lap being a stunning 119.250mph, they eventually won by 22.92s with Tim Reeves/Mark Wilkes again finishing third.
