Thank you all for your support so far this season, as we head off to Anglesey in (hopefully sunny) North Wales next weekend, with twenty-three teams entered - a record number for one of our championship events.

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.

Attached are the regs with closing date now next weekend 15th June the paddock plan and the race schedule... CLICK READ MORE

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.

• Holden / Cain continue good form in Sidecar session

Dean Harrison set the 2018 Isle of Man TT Races, fuelled by Monster Energy, alight on Tuesday evening with a stunning lap of 133.462mph, which unofficially broke the Superbike lap record and also saw him become the second rider to lap the Mountain Course in less than 17 minutes.

The Silicone Engineering Kawasaki rider laid down a marker from the outset with an opening lap of 133.140mph, the fastest ever standing start lap – albeit unofficially – before increasing his pace second time around. The Bradford rider’s quickest lap prior to tonight was 132.019mph, set in last year’s PokerStars Senior TT race.

Not to be outdone by the solos, the Formula Two Sidecars were also setting a formidable pace and John Holden/Lee Cain scorched round on their opening lap at 115.732mph, which was only three seconds outside their personal best. The Birchalls were second quickest at 114.875mph with Alan Founds/Jake Lowther (112.602) slotting into third ahead of Dave Molyneux/Dan Sayle (111.122).

Mike Breitenbach would like me to remind everybody that he WILL be across at the TT - and remind me at the same time to update his details on the link on the right which I haven't done yet. 
Mike I will get that done this week! 

I also have to put on a load of reports including the World Championship from Le Mans - I just do not have the time like I used to for keeping everything up to date instantly. 

Hope you're all well!
